Now We Know PETA Has Gone Crazy

"The town's name conjures up visions of unhealthy patties of ground-up dead cows," said Joe Haptas, spokesman of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), in a letter faxed Monday to Hamburg Supervisor Patrick Hoak.

Yup, you read that correctly. PETA wants Hamburg, NY to change their town's name to Veggieburg. It's one thing to make a political statement against dairy advertising but to ask a town to change it's name just because it sounds like meat?

Obviously, town officials declined the request.
