Chilly PETAns On The Mall

The organization People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals sent their bikini-clad warriors out to convert meat-masticating Reginans to a vegan (meat and dairy-free) diet. From their press release:

“Wearing nothing but strategically placed lettuce leaves and holding signs that read, “Turn Over a New Leaf: Go Vegan,” PETA’s sexy Lettuce Ladies will brave the cold in order to hand out delicious,¬†free soy cocoa to passersby in Regina on Friday. The ladies will also give out copies of PETA’s vegetarian/vegan starter kit to help people offset holiday weight gain and resolve to do better in 2011 for their health, the well-being of the planet, and animals.”

I for one am okay with both animals being less frequently eaten and abused, and bikinis.

  1. Gaahhh…

    Speechless. Keep the ribeye; I would hypothetically take the blond over a wad of animal flesh any day. Homminah homminah.

  2. I fail to see the connection between dressing in bikinis and animal rights. I dare say these ladies may be using the cause for an excuse to draw attention. To themselves.

  3. That’s because no one taught them about feminism, women being meat, etc., etc. Whah whah…

  4. These events should definitely have pretty boys in leaf loincloths too. It’s only fair.

  5. Ah, it’s the “White people need entertainment to give to charity” shtick (which actually what my initial Hhhhhh was about, and I’m using ‘white’ loosely of course). We are so fucked as a species. Ugh.

  6. Carle: in this case it’s not to give to charity, it’s to engage in arguably more ethical behaviour. But. Yeah, basically, if you like you could say that.

  7. I know, I know. Also, I may have misspoken about our species — it’s probably just our culture that’s doomed, but since we seem to control everything, it might as well be the whole species. A big tee hee to PETA, the radical group that still gets a bang out of nearly naked girls out in the cold, or at least thinks we should. Either way, again, Ugh.

  8. For reasons of being a disgusting, dirty old pig, this bugs me less than you. But I appreciate where you’re coming from.

  9. This is one of those things…. I want to support PETA based on the principles it is supposed to have but this kind of tactic makes it really difficult to do so. This is the same type of campaign they have run since…. as long as I can remember. “Go vegan: Naked chicks!” …not exactly promoting social responsibility.
