PETA takes on a biker rally. (Put beer down before reading, you don't want beer through the nose.)


In an article that is nothing but choice quotes, it was hard to pick just one, but here is my final answer:
"“In fact,” said the organizer, “motorcycle gangs are one of the biggest abusers of wearing leather, and we decided it was high time that we let them know that we disagree with them using it, ergo, they should stop.”"

So, DO NOT LAUGH. These people are trying to rid the world of the scourge of leather abuse.

Wouldn't it be wasteful not to use

snopes says this is a spoof, but still good for a alugh.


I am broken hearted. Will we ever be free of leather abuse???

I apologize for not checking, but do not apologize for anyone who got a good laugh out of it.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

If it was a spoof, they woulda gone after Amazon's sex toys

If it was a spoof, they woulda gone after Amazon's sex toy marketplace which is leather-heavy with whips, bondage gear, and dominatrix costumes.

funny, but old

whoever made this up is hilarious

it might be real

there's big biker-fest there every year called "Thunder in the Valley"

not TOO far fetched that some of the more 'free-spirited" bikers might have dealt out a little frontier justice after having their leathers ruined. The leather in NOT for looks, it is highly protective to the rider. Most of the riders I know would never go out without it.

here's a video from a recent one:
(it happens to feature a ridiculously talented studio guitarist, Johnny Hiland, performing there)

Is this true?

Sounds like something the Onion would put out.

If it is, kudo's to the bikers!

I didn't know it was April's Fools already.

Sounds like a joke, no ?

PETA : er... I must have missed the punch line, though ?!

Did you read the link?

I was trying as hard as I could not to laugh so I didn't have to tell my little boy why I was laughing. I couldnt control myself so I read him one of the innocent lines that was kinda funny.

Yes, of course, I read.

Yes, of course, I read. I didn't even miss the "our handshaking" quote.

Why do such a Psy-Op against those peaceful, calm, and warmly gentle bikers ?

Can't happen. I've never been duct taped to a tree or peed on by bikers. And I actually used to know a bunch of those cool dudes (Italian vs. Japanese vs. American "Onions" fans ***, etc).

PETA : that wasn't in fact funny. Lying = bad bad bad. Bad PETA.

*** "Onions" : as they call bikes where I come from.

You mean it was all a lie to

You mean it was all a lie to make the bikers look bad?

Actually... you know what ?

Actually... you know what ? On a second thought...

I'm VERY SURPRISED it ended SO WELL for those PETA !

In my younger years, I helped

In my younger years, I helped with our church's bus ministry. Doing that I went and visited in a minority neighborhood on Saturday and then showed up on Sunday with the church bus to pick up the kids. Just thinking of that now since I was a female, alone and 16 in one of the rougher towns makes me wonder.

One Sunday the bus ran out of gas. When the driver and the other helper went to get gas they passed a motorcycle gang having a party in a junk yard. I doubt that any of the bikes were foreign back then.. only Harleys...the gang was a rough drug/sex gang called the Jesters, but they very kindly got some gas out of one of the wrecked vehicles and brought it down to the bus and filled that tank so we could get to a gas station. They seemed very kind and almost happy to help us church folk who were helping the kids.

Maybe I was a bit sarcastic.

Maybe I was a bit sarcastic. Correction : I was, indeed.

So... Speaking from my experience, most bikers are pretty cool. Or I haven't met the bad ones yet. I even dated a biker girl long ago. A Japanese one. (Her bike, not the girl)

But yes : you REALLY DON'T want to mess with them when they enjoy THEIR TIME with THEIR BIKES.

Dude. Seriously.

Those PETA just didn't think if you ask me !

I wonder why PETA is not

I wonder why PETA is not getting on these cops shooting dogs for no reason.

A perfect example...

..of why cowardly neocon chickenhawks are eager to take on Eye-Ran's Nucular ambitions, but will passively acquiesce to Red China.

Attn PETA poltroons: stick to harrassing helpless old ladies wearing fur collars and leave studly bikers alone... for the same reason cowardly cops hassle potheads and prostitutes (real criminals shoot back.)

Confession: I was also unable to restrain my laughter.

LoL omg RoFLMao

The 'farting on their heads' part is positively hilarious. It is not a completely original idea though. My friend Cathy R. taught me that trick back in high school. She did it to unsuspecting sleeping track teammates. I just rolled on the floor laughing. She told me she's kill me if I told anyone. I never did until now.

Didn't they threaten

to protest the team that signed Michael Vic?

Thank you,

I needed something funny after being ticked off all day at my senator for voting for UN Treaty. This fit the bill. Can we send this biker group to my senator?

I saw a funny bumper

I saw a funny bumper sticker...PETA - People Eating Tasty Animals.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

good lord

There is a saying,

Dont show up to a biker rally protesting leather.

The fast food dumpster idea was rather clever I must say.

I'll have to call my friend to see if he was there protesting leather.

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

Ahhh, I needed a good laugh!

Can we send the club to Washington?

LMAO! They started it. What

LMAO! They started it. What did they think would happen when they started throwing stuff at a bunch of bikers? Too funny.

Blessings )o(
