Madness: PETA Demands English Town Rename Itself ‘Vegan Wool’

One of the things I am thankful for during this Thanksgiving season is PETA.  Their idiocy provides so much material. Just in the past few months, they declared milk a symbol of white supremacy, demanded the Supreme Court cafeteria go vegan, and pushed animal crackers to re-draw the cartoon on their box, removing the cartoon cages housing the animals. Taking their craziness to new heights, PETA is trying to get the tiny millennium-old English town of Wool to change its name to ‘Vegan Wool.’

If the folks at PETA did any research, perhaps they would find out that the name of the town, “Wool” has nothing to do with sheep or the warm fabric. The name Wool comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon word “welle” meaning water spring. Does PETA want people to stop drinking water because of cruelty to rain clouds?

Per the Daily Mail:

Elisa Allen, a director at PETA, has written to Wool Parish Council with the ‘ridiculous’ request. She said the change in name would promote kindness to sheep.

The activist said they would give a ‘cruelty-free’ woollen blanket to all 2,000 households in the village if they agree to the suggestion.

Note the letter from PETA is at the end of the post.

Because PETA has made the suggestion in writing members of Wool Parish Council are obliged to list it on the agenda at their next meeting – but the matter is likely to be laughed out of the room.

Local councillor Cherry Brooks said: “It is a ridiculous request and it’s caused quite a stir in the village.

“A few people are quite offended but most people seem to find it amusing.

“The proposal will now need to be discussed at the next council meeting, which will be interesting.”

Residents have already discussed the proposal in social media, and they weren’t kind. Some worried about the fate of other historic towns such as Ham, Cheddar Gorge, and Melton Mowbray.

Samantha Peters, manager of Ruby’s Tea Room in Wool, said: “I’m vegan but that’s bonkers.”

Leanne Welsh, a teaching assistant at St Mary & St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Wool, said: “So Cheddar Gorge could be Vegan Chedder Gorge? Burgar in Scotland could be Veggie Burgar! Ooh! Let’s see how many more.”

Jayne Merchant from Bovington Camp said: “The name Wool should remain as it is, the idea of renaming the village is utterly ridiculous. The most idiotic idea I have come across in a long time.”

Christopher Grist said: “I’m certainly not putting Vegan Wool on any forms I have to put my place of birth on!”

I can’t wait to see what comes out of the next town council meeting where the name change is debated. Until then I will be putting some juicy t-bones on the bar-b-que and singing about Mary’s Little Lamb.
