    In the process of some serious KFC bashing, seems PETA is into some serious copyright infringement while they insult Mario (and friends) as part of there "comic" cut scenes. The game starts with Mario and his brother unable to save "Princess Pam", due to Wii related injuries, leaving a pair of chicks (baby chickens) to platform across a Mario-like world instead.

    In this world you eat Tofu to power up like the super mushroom, doubling your size, and jump on the KFC flag pole to end each level. Along with it's propaganda within the game about animal cruelty, the game seems to focus about as much attention on Mario. Mario ends up being served a large number of "mishaps" such as getting jumped by a PETA activist for stomping on Koopa Troopas, and getting slapped by Peach for wanting to save another princess besides her. The Mario bashing continues in-between each level.

    I dunno if this is old news or not but it's new to me, and probably others as well. Here is the link, I want to hear what people think about this...

    (Yes, it is obviously serious.) I don't think PETA maintains there page on Wikipedia namely due to the fact of bias-based material that would be found there. You might have to utilize google and manually pour through PETA's propaganda on it's various websites for a more clear picture.

    I'm guessing that since PETA is taking a video game approach they are using the Mario icon as a means to score credibility for themselves. Mario is a well known icon, and the Wii itself is getting alot of attention, so basically by means of stealing some of the spotlight from Nintendo for themselves.

    I have read forum threads and comments in the past about PETA supporters belly aching over Mario stomping animals teaches kids it's "okay to kill animals" as adults. I took it has a drop in the ocean and never thought about it again until now. I understand the desire to push there own "heroes" by stealing some spotlight and attempting to be comical in the process however there focus between KFC and Mario are almost balanced.

    PETA has always been a borderline violent society resorting in extreme means to prevent the usage of animal based products and testing. PETA supports have been known to break the law in the past, and doesn't surprise me that they are willing to infringe on copyrights at all.

    Personally I am thankful for all the mice and lab rats who have been sacrificed to protect and promote better health and living for us all. Until wild animals stop looking at us as snacks then I will consider doing the same. :)

    Ok now remember how is it wrong to use rats that kill millions of people yearly because they carry around all those decieses that kill ppl right. Also Nintendo should take some leggall action against them.

    Is PETA the radical Nature lover group that often protests at places completely naked and sometimes breaks into zoos to free animals? If so, they suck. I support animal rights but they just strengthen the stereotype that nature lovers are a bunch of dangerous hippies.


    EDIT :: Just played the game, and if that information about Scalding Chickens alive etc. is true, then KFC really needs to be sued or forced to change their ways. But I still think PETA is a bunch of radicals.

    PETA - The ones who freak out over meat? Yeah they would say to a 4 year old that "Your mom is a murderer she is killing innocent animals and YOUR helping her!" afterwards hand the child a bloody chicken - Thats some serious problems.


    Then again there was a PETA protest against a school serving elementary kids milk. I might add he was in a cow costume in 100+ Degree weather. The kids then proceeded to call him retarded and drink/toss milk at them. When he yelled back at the kids he was arrested.

    Those are some smart kids.....

    PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and yes, these are the people you often hear about resorting to illegal activities in effort to support there 'cause.
    Yes, there is some TRUTH behind what PETA is ranting about. The Chickens are processed by a conveyor system that passes them by a blade to slit there throats, only problem is that about 1 out of 20 may still be "moving" by the time they are boiled to remove there feathers. The process seems cruel however you have to consider how much chicken we consume each year and what it takes to fill that order at the lowest possible cost to the consumer. These factors are NOT in place to be "mean" to the birds but to provide all the products we know and love.

    I've been wondering when Nintendo is going to catch onto this and pursue legal action. Maybe they already have. I'm sure KFC has filed notions against them, but then again - this campaign of PETA's against KFC has been going on for years and probably already has seen the court room.

    Funny how the system often works, Oprah makes a comment about beef and the sales of bovine by-product fall. Then Beef industry sues and wins. PETA, who takes aggressive and often promotes hostile actions like flinging blood on fur coats in protest generally gets left alone. I would say that it's because of the rally of people that shift the votes of these judicial hearings, however Oprah I believe has a large fan base too (maybe larger than PETA's) nation-wide so that possibility is out.

    Curious to what Nintendo will do about it. (If anything.) :|

    I don't think Peta is too successful with the battle against real animal abuse and its kind of sad how Peta is now trying to protest fictional animal abuse. Also I'm wondering does KFC actually have these chicken killing factories or they are just customers ordering the chicken from the chicken farms.

    wheres my I *club card suit symbol* baby seals shirt when I need it?
    and yes I actually own one,
    and yes people from peta cry when they see it

    I can't take an organization seriously if they protest a mosquito killing contest, I mean COME ON!

    I actually had an antiPETA cookout at my college, my friends and I made t shirts
    People Eating Tasty Animals and the like, we had a crap load more people show up then peta did at their lame o rally. I've been using that people eating tasty animals thing forever, I started a tribe for it a long time ago, used to have a bunch of people on it. We had recipes and all sorts of stuff, the like was something like therealpeta.tribe.net peta of course hated it, and since the majority of tribe users are in California, a hot bed for petites it was fun. Why is it that vegans and peta people have to shove their propaganda down your throat? The same people in PETA that whine and moan about Christians or religious folks or well anyone pushing anything other then peta try to force feed you that meat is murder stuff. If they were not so damn irritating about it I wouldn't care about them. And Pam Anderson is supposed to be my veggie role model? right balloon hoohoos and druggie husbands with a propensity for giving out black eyes is what I look up to.

    I always wondered when chiropractors were gonna start advertising to women with sickeningly huge implants though, that would be hilarious.

    To my understanding KFC does own the farms, however they operate under a different name of course. Not sure of the name off the top of my head. There are multiple locations and are not the only chicken supplier in the market. Tyson also has a plant in Kentucky, somewhere near Louisville. I have several friends in the area (who worked for the Tyson plant) and have been told that the process is pretty much universal.
