What’s cuter than an ocean full of fish? That’d be a sea full of kittens. Or so says PETA, whose acronym we will not be redefining in the comments section.
Now, everyone knows that when PETA speaks, you dodge a bucket of blood. But in this case let us take a moment to observe their latest campaign in the battle for beastly justice. “PETA thought that by renaming fish sea kittens, compassionate people who would never dream of hurting a dog or a cat might extend that sympathy to fish, or sea kittens,” PETA campaign coordinator Ashley Byrne told National Public Radio’s Anne Hillman.
Aw, that’s sweet PETA.. but where’s the insane justification?
“Most parents would never dream of spending a weekend torturing kittens for fun with their families, but hooking a sea kitten through the mouth and dragging her through the water is the same as hooking a kitten through the mouth and dragging her behind your car,” – Ashley Byrne
I don’t want to add much to this, or rather I do not want to take anything away from Ashley’s eloquence. But I’m curious to know what PETA – in its wisdom – recommends we use to feed the 6,000,000,000+ humans on this planet, given that any cuisine remotely related to animal biology is off-limits. Also, the campaign has a website. Check it out.
