Holy Cow! Can you say that?

Dr. Shareena Hamzah says its offensive to animal rights lovers to use "meat" in metaphors.

According to PETA, the animal rights charity, it’s just plain wrong to keep offending animal rights lovers my making such flippant remarks as “bring home the bacon.”

Metaphors that depict animal cruelty are extremely insensitive and offensive to vegans, says Dr. Shareena Hamzah of Swansea University in the UK.

Phrases such as “killing two birds with one stone” and “take the bull by the horns” should be replaced by saying “feeding two birds with one scone” and “take the flower by the thorns,” Dr. Hamzah suggests.

Imagine the cruel imagery of someone saying they are “flogging a dead horse”?  That phrase should be replaced with “feeding a fed horse.”

“Bringing home the bacon?”  Well, it should be replaced with “Bringing home the bagels,” according to PETA.

Such “creative,” albeit worthless, changes to these phrases proves at least one point:

“There’s more than one way to skin a cat.”  Oops.  Sorry PETA.
