PETA Urges Vegan Super Bowl For Obama
Here’s PETA’s letter to Cristeta Comerford, White House Executive Chef
Dear Ms. Comerford,
I’m not sure whether you will be watching the Super Bowl this coming weekend, but I suspect you will be cooking up a storm for the President and First Family’s Super Bowl evening. I’m also not sure if you have heard that 600 million, yes million, chickens will lose their wings and their lives just for this one game. That’s why I am making a special request to you: please will you serve up some delicious, totally cholesterol-free, tasty, and cruelty-free faux wings for this event? Although President Clinton’s chef cooked veggie burgers for him and made vegetarian meals for Chelsea, I think you would be making history. I doubt faux chicken wings, although they are easy to find nowadays in any grocery store, have been served in the White House ever before.
I am out on the streets of Washington, and my colleagues are outside the stadium in Indiana all week, offering faux wings to visitors and residents. We would love to hear that you gave the President and the First Family a taste of “happy wings”—wings for which no gentle birds had to lose their lives. No matter which team you place your money on to win the Super Bowl, going vegan is always a safe bet.
Here is the recipe I recommend and the one my “ordinary” family will enjoy this weekend.
With every good wish for a healthy, humane game time,
PETA Outreach Coordinator
