A minor league baseball team has recently been sporting some new bacon-themed uniforms. It makes sense, as the name of their team is the Iron Pigs. This move, though, has an anti-meat activist group up in arms.
The team’s slogan, “Smell The Change”, is only irritating the activists more. Now, the veggie-lovers want to ban bacon from ballparks all together. Oh, geez. As if there aren’t about a billion more worthy causes than making it your life’s mission to ban bacon from ballparks.
Even the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has jumped on board, with a billboard that likens eating bacon to smoking cigarettes. It is located a mile from the Iron Pigs’ ballpark and reads:
“The team would never pass out free cartons of cigarettes to the children of the LeHigh Valley, yet they are providing open access to bacon crumbles and turning a family-friendly event into a public health crisis.”
First, the Left tried to ban the word “bossy”, now they are attacking bacon. What will they attempt to eradicate next? It’s anyone’s guess.
I don’t know about you, but they can’t have my guns or my bacon. No way, no how!
I have to say, I do get a kick out of these liberal activists getting their panties all in a wad over some delicious bacon. How about you?
