A huge billboard off the Eisenhower Expressway is warning Chicagoans that eating hot dogs can damage their health.Yes, it's the PETA sympathisers - for whom meat doesn't feature in the main food groups anymore - pretending to dish out altruistic and dispassionate advice. They are known for irresponsible scaremongery like this.
"Hod Dogs Cause Butt Cancer," the billboard reads in big bold red letters. It also features an obese cartoon character of a man holding a hot dog in one hand, wearing a hospital gown and peering back at his rear which is peaking out from the gown.
The ad greets drivers on the Eisenhower Expressway as they drive west, between the Kostner and Cicero exits. It is sponsored by the nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.
But, hey! What if they're right?
Good Lord! When talking out of one's arse is a professional requirement, those two really should get checked out pronto.
