SLAUGHTERVILLE, Okla.   An animal rights group is asking the residents of Slaughterville, Okla., to reconsider the town's name.

 
The alternative? Veggieville.

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (search) sent a latter to Slaughterville administrator Marsha Blair suggesting that the town undergo a moniker makeover to sound less hostile to furry and feathered friends.

"Veggieville [is] a friendly name honoring a heart-healthy and compassionate alternative to animal corpses," the letter said.

The group said it's even willing to cough up a lot of lettuce $20,000 worth of veggie burgers for Slaughterville students if the town will change its name, according to Bruce Friedrich, director of PETA's vegan campaigns.

But Slaughterville residents apparently think PETA is full of beans.

"We do not intend to change the name," Blair told Reuters.

Slaughterville was named after a grocery store run by James Slaughter, who helped found the town in the early 20th century.  

For Blair and other residents, the Slaughter family's lingering reputation makes the town's name a sacred cow.

Friedrich, who once lived in the town of 3,600, said that though some might think his offer is a joke, he hopes his pro-veggie message will resound.

"People find our requests amusing, and they chuckle," he said. "But when they're laughing, they have the opportunity to consider the animal abuse it brings up."

That's pretty good! Just when you think you have seen just how high stupidity can reach, you see something even dumber! The clown that wants to change the name of the town should go have a serious conversation with some man eating lions in Kalifornia("K" was intentional.) If he survives that field trip, he could maybe go to Intercourse,PA, and encourage them with his "wisdom". Isn't there a"Hell,MI, also? And Hell's Canyon? Yeah, he can go to Hell!

The only purpose of bread is to hold meat!

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
