A chicken museum? Really? That’s sure to drum up a ton of revenue and visitors – don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to purchase my tickets. What type of exhibits do you think they’ll have? Here are some of my suggestions: The advent of the drum stick, a petting farm, a real life experiment of which came first, simulation of a chicken crossing the road, and a bodily function exhibit called That’s Just Fowl. But seriously, here is a snippet from the article proving that this is really being considered:
An animal rights group wants to rent a prison building the state plans to close and turn it into the nation’s first chicken empathy museum. A People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals official sent a letter Monday to Gov. Tim Kaine asking to rent the Botetourt Correctional Center building in Troutville.
It’s nice to know that PETA has empathy for chickens, but it’s a little tougher to find it for those wretched humans.
