And then there's this bunch of luke-warm embarrassments.
El Pig's mild manifesto:
¡Viva la Revolución!Hardly the most rousing sentiment. He could call for anything on behalf of his imprisoned brothers and sisters. Anything at all. But he aims so low it's a wonder he bothers aiming at anything at all. The right not to be killed and eaten? Where is that on his list of demands?
Okay pigs, it's time for us to get together and start fixing this system. We see the way that our pig friends get treated at the factory farms. And it's time we fight so all pigs can have the same rights we have!
No more tight, confining pens! No more antibiotics or non-vegetarian feed!!!!!!!!
We can do it!
We want equality, and we want it now!
P.S. Clear your calendars for next months (sic) talk-n-trough mixer.
Oh, we can understand the desire to end so-called factory farming. It's just that, when "fixing the system" means El Pig lodges a request for more comfortable shackles, we think his movement needs a new leader.

Addendum: You're reminded of these patsies, aren't you? And these, too? We understand.
Addendum 2: Another "food" animal revolutionary.
