WHOSE TURN WAS IT TO KEEP PETA FROM DOING STUPID SHIT ON THE INTERNET THIS WEEK
FESS UP NOW
Nah, I haven’t played it, but I’ve seen enough secondhand description of it to not feel like wasting my precious dialup tubes on waiting for it to load. I’ll poke it if I get bored at work tomorrow and have met my werdz quota on NaNo and SS*BB stuff.
And although I’m going to give them some of the benefit of the doubt and say that probably wasn’t the message they meant to send, the implied “cows > women” is just …um, no. You do not win the ten-day cruise or the year’s supply of Cheez-Its, but we do have this lovely parting gift of a clue and a hot cup of STFU for you. Thanks for playing.
So I guess they figured “Well, we’ve pissed pretty much everyone in the US off, now we’ve pissed pretty much everyone in Canada off, who are we missing… O RITE!”
In a spectacular display of ignorance, PETA talking head Lindsay Rajt offers this gem:
“We think that Mexicans and other immigrants should be warned if they cross into the U.S. they are putting their health at risk by leaving behind a healthier, staple diet of corn tortillas, beans, rice, fruits and vegetables.”
Yeah, this would be the point where my jaw hit the floor.
Good grief, lady, while you’re at it you might as well take out full-page ads in New Orleans telling black people to stop eating fried chicken and stick with the watermelon and collard greens.
I have called PETA a lot of unkind things in the past, but not “racist shitheads.” Until now, anyway. Ugh. UGH.
