During the course of Sunday’s Superbowl Football game, American consumers will devour more than of 1.25 billion (1,250,000,000) chicken wings.
Since chickens only have two wings each, 625,000,000 sentient beings must be slaughtered for the ‘enjoyment’ of the American public. With a US population of less than 314 million, this means that for every American man, woman, and child, two chickens will be killed for one afternoon of ‘fun’.
Please spare your two chickens!
Having abandoned the taking of life,
refraining from the taking of life,
one dwells without violence,
with the knife laid down, scrupulous, full of mercy,
trembling with compassion for all sentient beings.
