INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

This Aflac ad makes a comedy out of their famous duck being injured multiple times at a barbecue in which a chicken is being roasted. Hopefully the ad will be removed sooner rather than later. See the ad here (as of 10/30/10) - http://www.aflac.com/individuals/default.aspx .


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
