This is too funny.

Hey, at least it was in the UK, we got enough issues to deal with.



Firefighters enjoy sausages made from piglets they rescued from fire

A group of firefighters in the U.K. saved a group of piglets from a large barn fire and were rewarded with sausages made from the rescued swine.

BBC News reports 18 piglets and two sows were saved from a farm in Wiltshire in February after 60 tons of hay caught fire. Firefighters from the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service battled the blaze, which was started by an electrical issue.

The piglets were given a brief stay of execution but met their inevitable fate six months after the fire. Rachel Rivers, the manager of the farm, told BBC News the pigs were slaughtered and turned into sausages, which were delivered to the firefighters.

"I'm sure vegetarians will hate this," Rivers said.

The firefighters barbecued the sausages at the Pewsey fire station, calling them "fantastic." The firefighters posted images of the barbecue to their Facebook page, which have since been taken down.

Rivers defended the gesture, saying the move "was a good way of saying, 'Thank you.'"

"I gave those animals the best quality of life I could ever give until the time they go to slaughter and they go into the food chain," she said. "You do feel sad at the end of it."

A spokesman for the fire service thanked Rivers "for her generosity" in comments to BBC News, saying the sausages were "highly recommended."

"We can tell no porkies, the sausages were fantastic," the spokesman said Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) criticized the incident, telling BBC News the piglets were "no better off" for having been rescued from the February fire.

"We'll be sending Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service packs of vegan sausages so that they can see how easy it is to truly be heroes for pigs -- by sparing them all suffering," PETA's Mimi Bekhechi said.

Take the vegan sausages, feed them to the farmers' pigs, and put them back into the food chain like they were meant to be, hog food.

While we're on the subject, I came up with a great PETA-style program, but PETA hasn't responded to my voicemails pitching the idea.

The "Buy One , Set One Free" program. As an incentive for conscientious consuming, PETA can sponsor the purchase of, say, a cow, that will be set free when folks buy beef, or when you buy that Thanksgiving turkey, another turkey will be released from the farm to roam free in the wild.

Still trying to secure permission to use John Williams' "Born Free" for the commercial. No dice.

Guess some people just can't see a great idea even if irvis right in front of them.

PETA should be listed as a hate group since they hate people that eat meat, wear fur, or wear leather.
