Stupid FOX TV advertising.....

Still checking in to see what is really up with this. So far haven't been able to verify or not with anyone. No one seems to know for sure including FOX. *sigh*
Updated Monday 4 Feb.

Mom is checking out to see if this is just an internet myth, which she is hoping it is or if it is real. We will get back to you on it and let efurryone know. We hope it is not true. There are several versions on the web right now. One with children putting a rat in the microwave and watching it die, one with a rat crawling in the microwave and a group of men at work watching it die after turning it on. So Mom is checking to see.
Undated Monday 28 Jan

We just read this on the all things critters blog.
For anyone who thinks this is wrong and encouraging stupid cruelty let your voices be heard. The Fluffy Tribe Mom Jane has already emailed and is calling Monday.

There is a promo for a new TV show on the Fox Channel called "Unhitched." They showed a scene where 2 boys put a rat into a microwave oven and turn it on. Then it shows their faces as they supposedly watch the rat being cooked. At they end, one of them says, "That was the longest 9 minutes of my life," and the other one says something like, "It looked like he was enjoying it for the first few minutes."

Obviously we want to prevent this show from airing. We're afraid this will encourage children to put small pets in the microwave and we are not going to sit by and let this air and a scene like this is totally unacceptable.

I need your help. First, log on to http://www.fox.com/links/ and click to find your local Fox station, then call them on the phone and complain about this promo. You can also email Fox at askfox@fox.com. Fox also has a Viewer Comment line
which connects with an answering machine at: 310-369-3066.

This is so awful it makes me sick just reading it. Are these people out of their minds??

The stupidity of some people knows no bounds..:-(

I hope there will be a storm of protest against this and I will send an e-mail too.

I'm glad you mentioned it. I don't think we would want to watch that at all. It is horrible!

Guys, I really think this is an urban myth. Horrified, I did a little googling and found two different versions of this basic story. But, if you google "unhitched" and "fox tv" you'll see this is a series from the Farrelly brothers and has nothing to do with such animal cruelty. (http://tv.yahoo.com/show/41017/castcrew) Believe me, I'm not defending Fox, but I think what's going around is really lower than even they'd go.

William, I certainly hope you are right, because I keep thinking about this horror since I read about it yesterday..
And it still makes me feel sick.

Gee, I hope it is an Urban myth but Debbie Ducommun ("The Rat lady" does discuss it on her website "The Rat Fan Club" (http://ratfanclub.org/boycott.html) and suppsedly she was in contact with the Fox Network.

I'm still investigating...
