Disturbing Barbeques Galore Ads

PETA, get a hold of this! According to these disgusting ads for Barbeques Galore, "What happens between the butcher and his meat is his business."

Barbeques Galore is an Australian chain of retail stores that specialize in barbecue grills. It includes about 84 stores in Australia, and 75+ stores in 10 American states.

Another foolish ad shows a macho stud posing proudly next to a copy that says, "Women will love you. Men will want to be you. Farm animals will fear you."

The third ad is a bit less offensive, showing a stake on a grill with, "Without the right grill, it's just a meat party. And who's going to come to that?"

I am not a vegetarian. I enjoy a nice steak each now and then, and still I am very offended by the ads and their copies. What the hell do they mean by what happens between the butcher and his meat?

If indeed these turn out to be official ads and not just an immature exercise by some ad agency, then I think Barbeques Galore has a lot of explaining to do.
