PETA vs. Poker?

by , Jan 16, 2009 | 6:57 am

Apparently the animal rights activists have a problem with our use of the term “fish”. While my first reaction was that the PPA needs to do something about this! Where’s Barney Frank?!? … but upon a little pause and reflection, I’m thinking maybe we should let this one go. As competing political forces, maybe poker and PETA should compromise — if we can have fully legal online poker, OK, fine, we’ll start calling inexperienced players “sea kittens”. Cool? Cool.

    Just another of my weirdness practices is making fun of people on three talk radio stations. Thanks for that morsel. I particularly love PETA…People Eating Tasty Animals. My recipes for Eagles, Spotted Owls, and Prairie Dogs are a hit. Now here is an actual email I received on the Democratic Party mailing list.


    On Monday 1-19-08 (MLK holiday) at 2pm I’m going to walk in support of animal rights in front of TTU-Health Sciences Center. I will walk for half an hour or so.

    Please feel free to join me or forward this email to anyone you think might be interested.

    I agree with their cause and demand an end to derisive animal names. From now on, players formerly known as “fish” shall be called Meddling PETA Fuckleheads.

    If it weren’t for the support of poker from Indian Casinos, we could call new players…. Hmmm better though What was that recipe for Spotted Owl?
