PETA’s latest clickbait took aim at people who enjoy fishing. What is their fresh angle on angling? PETA won’t be your friend if you like to go fishing.
We agree to your terms, PETA.
Disclaimer: This editor does enjoy tricking fish, so expect to see this article chummed with plenty of fishing terms.
We’re not unique, by the way. Grizzly bears, sea gulls, turtles, octopuses, and even other fish enjoy tricking fish. Nature and stuff, you know?
If your “hobby” includes tricking fish, piercing their mouths with a hook, & pulling them out of the water to SUFFOCATE, 𝕨𝕖 𝕔𝕒𝕟’𝕥 𝕓𝕖 𝕗𝕣𝕚𝕖𝕟𝕕𝕤 🚫🎣👎

Twitter didn’t waste any time tackling the jerkbaits at PETA.
You should see what other fish do.

Drag those bottom feeders, Amish Dude!

This was the general consensus of the Twitter backlash.
Oh no, I wouldn’t know what to do if we weren’t friends pic.twitter.com/7YSIjdISF4

That’s a nice large mouth you’ve got there, PETA. The bass is decent too.
Nothing wrong with a little piercing, they instantly become one of the cool fish.

LOL. That’s some nice trolling.
Fish is delicious. Cope. Mald. Seethe. https://t.co/yJgu1sbSE9

Twitter barbs directed at PETA are not complete without some meat pics. That tuna probably left them reeling.
I don’t think we were friends to begin with. https://t.co/5tQ2nwLLDY

Accurate. Everyone bailed on PETA long before they announced these terms.
Sounds like a bargain https://t.co/eLZceWEXVO

Right? We’re taking this deal … hook, line, and sinker.

Hey now! That’s our job! LOL.

Comedian, Mitch Hedberg:
You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don’t want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something.
‘Hey where were you?’
‘I got caught’
‘I don’t believe you. Show me your lip.’

Let the PETA frying continue!

It’s a grand slam! Sorry, PETA, we’d cast our lot with these gals over you any day.
That is not my hobby at all. I put on scuba gear, get in the water with fish, then spear the ones I want to eat for dinner. Snapper is particularly tasty. pic.twitter.com/BgNPyyTzEa

Nice! With that, we’ve bagged our limit of fish tweets for the day. Now get out there and catch some fish!
Carp-e diem! (Sorry, not sorry.)
