This Aussie Street Could Be About To Change Its Name

If anything, this is the best name I have ever heard for a street.

Eggs and Bacon Bay.

What a name.

However, animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has called on the Huon Valley Council in Tasmania to change the name of the street to something more vegan-friendly.

The group has proposed that the street is changed to ‘’Apple and Cherry Bay’’, to promote the region's local industry.

PETA associate director of campaigns Ashley Druno said the group hoped the change would highlight to Huon Valley residents the need to avoid animal-derived foods.

“Considering the high levels of cholesterol and saturated fat in both eggs and bacon, the area may as well be called ‘Heart Attack Bay’,” she said.

“The Huon Valley is famous for its delectable apples and cherries, so we are asking the council ... ‘Where’s the fruit?’, in the hope that it will apply to change the name to ‘Apple and Cherry Bay’.”

Huon Valley will receive vegan apple pies if the name is adopted.

There has been no comment from the council.
