PETA Wants People To Stop Hating On Animals By Not Saying "Bring Home The Bacon" and Other Mean Phrases

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals apparently is offended by phrases like "bring home the bacon", and "take the bull by the horns", so the radical social justice folk over at PETA want them replaced with animal-friendlier versions of their own.  They posted on the following on Twitter:

Bring home the bagels? Be the test tube? Bwahahaha. Good grief! I don't eat meat and I have no issues with those idiomatic expressions. Soon anything we say is going to offend someone.  Then what?

They then equated "speciesism"  with racism and homophobic language.

"Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start 'bringing home the bagels' instead of the bacon."
Um, big difference between animals and people. Though neither should be abused, animals aren't going to know you've maligned them.

Some pretty funny Tweets in response on CBS News, but this video from Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch beats all.
