Bad Reputation

Dang, Joan Jett was kicked off the South Dakota float in New York's iconic Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade due to her vegetarian lifestyle and because she has a Bad Reputation for being an outspoken PETA activist. Apparently, South Dakota is heavily reliant on agriculture and livestock production so Ms. Jett will switch to another float and focus on the entertainment value of the event. Ain't that a Cherry Bomb?

Since I will be attending the parade this year as the #1 item on my bucket list, I gotta tell ya Joan, I LOVE ROCK AND ROLL and I certainly do not Hate Myself For Loving You just 'cause you don't eat meat and I prefer a big, fat, greasy cheeseburger. Sometimes Love Hurts girl, but stay true to yourself and you can Love Me Two Times from some tree hugger float. See ya in the Big Apple!

  1. What an outrage. I too am a proud member of PETA, aka People Eating Tasty Animals.

  2. I guess she likes more rock with her roll and not meat.

  3. You can just switch to whatever float you want? I want to be on a float!
    What was she doing on the SD float to begin with?

  4. I'm confused; I thought it was Joan herself who decided to move to another float. Am I wrong?

  5. Should I watch highlights of the parade this year, I'll pay attention to see if I can spot her on the float.

  8. I'm on the animals side, gotta admit. I just wish they weren't made of meat cause they taste so good with cheese :(

  9. Wanted to thank you for complimenting me on my hot red cool sweater. lol (hug)

    I don't eat beef, pork or chicken but I do eat eggs. Not anything political or environmental but more textural; never have liked any of them but I do eat bacon occasionally. I consider it more in the 'eating disorder' category. {confession} lol

  11. Aren't you the lucky girl to be going to see the parade in person. I didn't understand how she was associated to SD in the first place. She doesn't seem like their demographic.

  12. This is certainly traveling all over the internet because it's reached all the way up where I am!

  13. All the years I lived there, I never got to see the parade. I hope you have a blast. If you spot Joan, be sure and take a picture!

  14. That meatarian float committee is out-of-control. I love rock and roll too, Deb. Have a great time. I bet Joan will get more applause than anyone there.

  16. The ABftS gys have the right idea! That's my kind of PETA. Although, the way they're handled prior does bother me.
