In Yo Face, PETA!

This is why bikers are often times the best people I know:

I just learned about the group Rescue Ink from Jezebel, and I feel like I need to spread the word. Hell, I might even join them. Mama and Mr. D, get on it!

"But why is this in PETA's face?" you may be asking yourself. Well, you see, most animal right's groups are full of shit. Or rather, full of shitty people who would rather talk about how animals are our brethren and should be respected and not eaten, etc, meanwhile they really do jack shit in terms of directly benefiting animals. Sure, they'll stick naked women in cages to protest eating pork (somehow...), but actual, hands on rescue work? Not so much.

Here's a direct quote from Rescue Ink's website, "We will stop at nothing within the bounds of the law to protect animals at risk. We will intercede without hesitation when we are informed of a situation that needs to be addressed, and we will address it. If we need to convince people to do the right thing ... we can be very convincing, we'll even buy animals if that's what it takes to get them away from abusers."

I love how they are basically saying, "We know we're a bunch of big scary fuckers, and we're gonna use that power for good, dammit!" Sign me up! I mean, I know I'm not that intimidating at first glance, but that just means that people underestimate me.
