PETA Urges Honey Boo Boo To Rename Pet Chicken ‘Nugget’ to More Animal-Friendly Name

In our time watching Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, we’ve learned a few things: Honey Boo Boo’s family fiercely embraces its redneck ways. A dollar makes Honey Boo Boo holler. And finally, the pageant princess LOVES eating meat. But PETA apparently hasn’t figured this out yet, as the organization recently sent Honey Boo Boo a letter asking her to give her pet chicken a more animal-friendly name. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen.

Honey Boo Boo loves Nugget, her pet chicken, but she’ll love Nugget even more deep-fried and ready for consumption. PETA’s leaders either have not watched Here Comes Honey Boo Boo or don’t understand what a carnivore its star is, because they decided to send the little pageant queen a request for better animal treatment, or more specifically, not naming her pet after the means by which it will ultimately be consumed.

So, since PETA doesn’t find Nugget a suitable name for a chicken, what could work better? How about “I Am Not A Nugget?” Nice try, PETA, but you might as well quit now. In addition to being incredibly clumsy to pronounce, this name would be a bit misleading. It’s pretty obvious that Nugget ultimately will become a plate full of nuggets.
