PETA-philes at it again, the gall of this woman.

The Peta-philes are at it again, Ingrid “face like a smashed crab” newkirk has written a piece for the Guardians “comments are free” section. Obviously she was hoping for a surge of support, however word is beginning to leak out about Petas disgusting track record on animal welfare.

One last cuddle before the green dream eh?

UPDATE: [Beef] Well, Bing Mole, I meant Mole! and I are on the same page today! In related PETA lunacy news, they have asked the iconic 80’s band The Pet Shop Boys, to… change their name. I shit you not.

“LONDON, England (CNN) — Just because they named their new CD “Yes,” does not mean that British electro-pop duo, the Pet Shop Boys, will agree to just about anything.

PETA has asked the Pet Shop Boys to change the band’s name to Rescue Shelter Boys.

The band has turned down a request from an animal rights group to rename itself the Rescue Shelter Boys.

The organization, the People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe acknowledging that its request, at first blush, might appear “bizarre.” [I love unadulterated understatement – Beef]

But, by changing its name, the band could raise awareness at every tour stop of the “cramped, filthy conditions” that breeders keep animals in before selling them to pet stores, PETA said in its letter.

The duo, which has performed under its current name for more than 20 years, reproduced PETA’s written request in full on its Web site.

The musicians said they were “unable to agree” to the request “but nonetheless think (it) raises an issue worth thinking about.””

Not only can’t you make this stuff up, but things like this are totally impervious to satire and lampooning… because they’re so mind-crushingly stupid. I now return you to your regularly scheduled post.

So that’s what they were saying!

Remember the 400m men’s freestyle final at the Beijing olympics? Korea’s Park Tae-hwan managed to pip America’s Larsen Jensen (3rd) and Australia’s Grant Hacket (6th?!) to win the gold medal.

Needless to say, I have seen this reply hundreds of times on the telly over here but never knew what in heck the Korean commentators were saying. Well now, thanks to a fellow Korean ESL teacher/blogger, we finally have a translation.

I said click, dammit!
