A ‘Fishing Hurts’ highway rest stop?

It’s their money and they’re welcome to do what they want with it, but the folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sure come up with some harebrained ideas.

The latest: They want to sponsor a “Fishing Hurts” themed rest stop on Virginia’s Interstate 81. Given the importance of sport fishing to the Old Dominion’s economy, the PETAphiles will probably have a tough time selling the powers-that-be on the wisdom of accepting their offer.

The Roanoke Times has details.

I know I shouldn’t even dignify these bozos’ efforts by posting about them, but they make it so darned irresistible. It’s kind of like throwing a baseball hitter a down-the-middle fastball on a 3-1 count. Just can’t lay off it!
