An end to every sad song
So, as many of you, my friends, know, I am avidly AGAINST PETA. I hate them, with a burning passion. The Ringling Bros. Circus is in SD this weekend, and PETA is out there protesting. Well, today, me and my group of other PETA haters decided we were gonna protest the protesters.
Originally, we had it all set up. The circus knew we would be there, and the Ralph's across the street gave us the okay to rope off a few parking spaces to set up the grills we brough with us and BBQ. We had a megaphone, signs, and 900 pamphlets. It was sure to be an interesting day.
Okay, so we get there, and there's some new manager at Ralph's, telling us we can't BBQ, even though the past three times we've called in the last two weeks they've said it was fine. So, we said fuck it, and got our signs and Pamphlets. We had two groups stationed. One group out by the street holding signs for passing cars, and one group up at the doors to the sports arena (literally RIGHT next to PETA) holding signs and handing out pamphlets. After about an hour and a half, the doors closed, and PETA started to disperse. Before they could get far, my group started shouting across the street to eachother plans to go to In N Out. PETA heard. PETA was not happy. One of them asked me for a lighter. I've never seen anybody get so angry when I told them I didn't smoke with a cigarette in my hand.
So we start walking down the street towards In N Out, when we learned that the bike shop next to The Soma was hosting a free BBQ to promote their sale. So we head over there, and it was pretty cool. They had a live band playing, burgers and hot dogs, free soda. While some of our guys are grilling up burgers and buffalo, others of us were holding signs out by the street, and handing out pamphlets to unsuspecting passerby.
After a bit, some of us head back with signs and flyers, continuing to kick ass spreading our message at the circus. And eventually, we packed up, and left.
The day was uneventful, but seeing PETA as pissed as they were was well worth it. The best part was giving our flyers to all the same people they were giving theirs to.
Plans are already under-way for the next protest. New signs, better pamphlets, and definitely better planning for the BBQ.
We're still looking for people to join our cause. If you're interested let me know. This is nowhere near over. This is only the beginning.
