Old sayings may seem harmless, but, according to PETA, they could actually be viewed as anti-animal language and normalize animal cruelty.

The animal-rights group is pushing for “animal-friendly idioms” and provided a list of suggestions people can use to avoid offending vegans, PETA said. The group tweeted the alternative sayings Tuesday morning.

For instance, rather than saying, “bring home the bacon,” PETA suggested saying, “bring home the bagels.” Instead of saying “kill two birds with one stone,” they suggested, “feed two birds with one scone.”

“Words matter, and as our understanding of social justice evolves, our language evolves along with it,” PETA said in its tweet. “Just as it became unacceptable to use racist, homophobic, or ableist language, phrases that trivialize cruelty to animals will vanish as more people begin to appreciate animals for who they are and start ‘bringing home the bagels’ instead of the bacon.”

A full list of suggested sayings can be found below:

Instead of: "Be the guinea pig."
Say: "Be the test tube."

Instead of: "Beat a dead horse."
Say: "Feed a fed horse."

Instead of: "Take the bull by the horns."
Say: "Take the flower by the thorns."

Instead of: "Kill two birds with one stone."
Say: "Feed two birds with one scone."

Instead of: "Bring home the bacon."
Say: "Bring home the bagel

Yawn. This just an attention grabber and will go nowhere.

Spare yourself the outrage about PC culture.
