PETA Asks People to Stop Using ‘Anti-Animal Language,’ Including Common Phrases

In case you needed any further proof that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has jumped the shark as an organization, it has recently made headlines urging people to abandon “anti-animal language.”

Take the flower by the thorns? Bring home the bagels? Idiotic.

On the bright side, this prompted me to think about other phrases I may not use very often in my own speech, and has strengthened my resolve to incorporate them into my daily vocabulary. I encourage you to do the same.

Instead of: This problem has more than one solution.

Say: There’s more than one way to skin a cat.

Instead of: Living a prosperous life.

Say: Living high on the hog.

Instead of: My, there sure are a lot of coffee shops around here.

Say: There are so many coffee joints here that you cant swing a dead cat without hitting one.
