Playing Chicken

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is known as PETA. And PETA is known for outrageous demands to draw attention to their cause. Now they want to erect a memorial on the side of a Hall County highway to honor a bunch of chickens that recently died there in a truck wreck. As a thought experiment in a Philosophy 101 class this might be suitable. But as a supposedly serious proposal, it only illustrates how political movements too often hurt themselves by going to ridiculous extremes. If only those chickens had crossed the road.
