PETA’s SNAFU - “Save The Whales” Campaign

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), an animal rights organization, has really done it this time. It has obviously stepped out-of-line and doesn’t seem to know the difference between animals and women.

It’s recent "Save The Whales, Lose The Blubber: Go Vegetarian" billboard campaign has drawn world criticism for depicting an obese woman as “The Whale.”

Were they encouraging the human consumption of plankton?

No, but showing Rush Limbaugh eating a veggie pizza would have been more effective and less insulting to many people.

A PETA spokesperson said, "If the billboard is shocking, hopefully it will get people's attention, and help them improve quality of life for themselves and their families.... it's designed to help people."

Sorry guys, but the Fat Lady doesn't sing humpback.

PETA should stick to its Mission Statement regarding saving animals and leave exploiting women to Hugh Hefner.
