Philly PETA protest

    It may still be breakfast time, but it’s never too early to talk about lunch when it may be this exciting:

    Later today, professional dwarf dancers costumed in chicken suits are scheduled to arrive at a West Philadelphia McDonald’s restaurant in a pink stretch limousine to perform a choreographed “I Am Not a Nugget!” musical number.


    It’s a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) demonstration protesting methods used by U.S. suppliers of McDonald’s Corp. fast food restaurants to kill chickens.

    Plan to attend or avoid as necessary.
