PETA: It’s OK, The Turkeys Are Willingly Voting For Christmas

The idea of “Rudolph” being slaughtered and cut up for dinner makes a mockery of the Christmas spirit of peace and good will to all.

A PETA representative on the news that parents are angry about supermarket Lidl selling reindeer steaks in the run up to Christmas.

Are we then to deduce that letting kids think that turkeys enjoy an intensive protein based diet while living in crammed conditions that cause chronic pain for up to a third of their lives before they’re killed so we can eat them does not make a mockery of said Christmas spirit and goodwill?

I just want to be clear.

PETA: Misjudging The Situation

As a feminist and an animal lover, this PETA promotion only works for me if, as part of the deal, Jersey Shore’s The Situation agreed to be neutered.

I’m figuring he didn’t, therefore this ad must stand as the most poorly conceived and embarrassing campaign he’s been involved in since he was filmed unwittingly chatting up a transvestite in a bar.

PETA vs. Lady Gaga: Let Them Eat Lettuce

You can see where she got the idea. And given Lady Gaga’s recent indecision regarding the ethical rights and wrongs of wearing fur, Dam Hong Loan’s PETA protest against animal cruelty was beautifully timed.

One wonders how she’s going to deal with the inevitable slug issue, though. At least Gaga had a team of slaves available to swat at her meat dress before the blowflies settled in. It’s conceivable she has salted the shit out of those lettuce leaves, but when you consider the issues at stake here, leaving a trail of gasping, melting slugs in her wake probably isn’t the most politically sensitive move.

It’s an ethical dilemma, and no mistake.

Take a second to check PETA out. They do great work. 

Lady Gaga & The Furry Flip Flop Of Doom

Anti-fur campaigner Lady Gaga:

 I really loved that one in particular because I thought it was a commentary on not wearing fur, ’cause I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.

PETA baiter Lady Gaga:

For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You!
