PETA Just Released Their 'Animal-Friendly' Versions Of Common Idioms—And The Internet Has Questions

This week PETA took to Twitter to let people know the harmful effects of language and how important it is to chose your words carefully, even if those possibly offended have no idea what you are talking about.

In an attempt to have people be more mindful of harming animals, PETA would like us to reword idioms to more animal friendly words.

And this just doesn't feel like the right one.

Maybe in the end, that is all that matters.
