DOH REPORT: PETA says chickens are being offended by a bars name

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to the oldest bar in Britain on Monday demanding that it change its historic name because “Ye Olde Fighting Cocks” is offensive to chickens. 
PETA director Mimi Bekhechi said the name should be changed to “Ye Olde Clever Cocks” because that would “celebrate chickens as the intelligent, sensitive and social animals they are,” according to an article in the Mirror. {National Review]

The bar has been around since 1872 and this is the first time a chicken ever complained...apparently.:-)
