animal rights group is asking the residents of Slaughterville, Okla

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."


Now for the best part........Slaughtersville has no schools!

Heh Jon is right, slaughterville kids go to Noble schools.

Jon, methinks that there's too many members of the true ancient order of PETA ( people eating tasty animals) in that area as well.

and beside the true PETA can trace back membership for well over 20,000 years!

the young ignorant upsatrt group needs to do some serious re-evaluations of their methods of operation.

I'd almost be willing to bet Mr. Friedrich's offer is resounding in the bottom of the town crapper.

Best wishes, Bill

the thing that makes me the most angry about that post is the fact that I have a very well to do Aunt that gives lots of money to those IDIOTS in PETA because she like animals. I have printed articles about the stupid stuff PETA does OVER and OVER again and she still gives them her money...

Now now jon, just because Noble only has one stoplight that goes to flashing red and yellow at 10pm weekdays and midnight on weekends does not mean it's small :P

actually you wanna see Noble riot? close super-c mart, then people would have to go to norman for vittles :P

Hey Gump, when I was a kid, the hardware store was Super C, and we had no stoplight. To this day I wonder why the heck we have it
