Nicole Richie got married last weekend and as part of the lavish wedding festivities, she had a live elephant wandering around the party for entertainment. Here’s what PETA had to say about it:
“We know that Nicole is opposed to the way in which baby elephants are slammed to the ground and gouged with steel-tipped bullhooks in order to train them… We’re writing to her privately to respectfully ask her to keep exotic animals off her guest list for future celebrations.”
“Slammed to the ground and gouged with steel-tipped bullhooks”? Wow. Thanks for that visual PETA. I was just thinking “wedding… cake… flowers… happy shit…” and you guys roll in with the “steel-tipped bullhooks”. Sooooo, now this is awkward because I thought the elephants sounded pretty awesome. I mean, come on, even you guys gotta admit… elephants? At a wedding?!
I say if you’re gonna go with elephants at a wedding, you should keep the whole theme consistent — circus wedding!! Bridesmaids roll up in a clown car, groomsmen are nothing but midgets and circus freaks, a Fat Lady officiates and then the happy couple rides off into the sunset on the back of a tiger!
