GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- An animal rights advocate wants to place a roadside memorial in Georgia to remember several chickens killed in a highway wreck.

A member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals filed an application for the memorial Wednesday with the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that, if approved, a memorial would be placed at the Hall County site where a truck hauling live chickens overturned Jan. 27.

Sarah Segal of Atlanta writes in her application that she wants to place a 10-foot tombstone memorial for one month on the right of way of U.S. 129 to mark the deaths of the chickens.

The driver of the chicken truck and the other vehicle involved were not seriously injured.

Everyone Please join us in a day of remembrance

There will be a candle light supper at Chick-Fil-a, and Buffalo's tonight.
All are invited to make these senseless deaths meaningful in someway.

Remember 20 years ago without the Internet these crackpots
were voiceless.

As if PETA doesn't often look ridiculous enough as it is, this will convince those on the fence.

Absolutely!! This is CLEAR

Absolutely!! This is CLEAR proof that these people have completely lost their minds!! But it's actually hilarious!! What about all the dogs who lose their lives daily while crossing the road? Deer? Possums? Raccoons? Armadillos? Snakes?

Thank you PETA, for actually making my day; by showing yourselfs to be the ridiculous radicals I've always knew you were!!

Why did the chicken Cross the road?

Bill Clinton: "That depends on what your definition of "did" is."

GEORGE BUSH JR: I don't know, but I'll tell you this: That chicken may run, but it can't hide. God bless America.

RONALD REAGAN: What chicken?

GRANDPA: In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

LOUIS FARRAKHAN: What color was the chicken? If you do your research, you will find that it was a white chicken. Roads are always black. The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him and keep him down.

THE BIBLE: And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

JERRY FALWELL: Because the chicken was gay! Isn't it obvious? Can't you people see the plain truth in front of your face? The chicken was going to the "other side." That's what "they" call it: the "other side." Yes, my friends, that chicken was gay. And, if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like "the other side." That chicken should not be free to cross the road. It's as plain and simple as that.

COLONEL SANDERS: You mean I missed one?!

What about the Pepsi we lost

What about the Pepsi we lost when a truck overturned last year on Bobby Jones? We did not even receive a moment of silence.

Or, worse yet, the Bud Light truck that overturned a couple weeks ago in ATL.

She may have been the one who stole the truck last year that was full of chicken wings. 'Cause you know they needed a proper burial.

"One person. This is a story?"

Sure it's a story, there have always been stories in the paper about things that are just odd, everything doesn't have to be serious news. Kind of like the "News of the Weird" column. This is one of those, a story because this woman ("A" member of PETA) is weird, misguided, must think this is Seattle, not Georgia and stooopid!!!

A 10 foot tombstone would not

A 10 foot tombstone would not be cheap. Does this ding-bat realize that her money would do more good at an animal shelter. I mean....if she really had concern for animals instead of just being a butt.

Go look at her Facebook page. Research takes the mystery out of the crazy.

If PETA didn't approve of her actions, they would tell her to stop or NOT claim affiliation with their group!!! I'm sure they are right there with her, that's just how idiotic this group is!!

Hey, buddy, got any spare points? Trying to get to 10,000.

I laughed so hard that tears rolled down my cheeks when I read this. Where did she think the chickens were bound for - a week on a beach in the Caribbean? How can PETA expect to be treated seriously?
Actually I vote for erecting a marker if I can design it and create the text! I have several wicked ideas for this misguided tribute....
