WTF??? 60


PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has come up with a way to make us all stop eating fish-- change the name from fish to SEA KITTENS...
Sounds like a good idea to me... I already like to eat catfish, and wouldn't it be fun to order sea kittens and hushpuppies at Long John Silver's?

IS PETA INSANE!!!??? Btw, while checking out their site, I created my own sea kitten. They are right about the marketing. If they actually did children's books and toys based on sea kittens, it would earn them money. unfortunately, they'd probably use it to do more WTF stuff like this!

i made my own sea kitten too-- didn't you love how you only had 2 or 3 options to turn a fish into a cat, but you could turn a fish into a biker, a punk or an elephant? that deserves it's own "wtf?"...

and yes, PETA has been off it's rocker for some time now-- apparently they claim Jesus was a vegetarian (i guess he never ate any of those fish he multiplied) and encouraged college students to drink beer instead of milk (a hard sale to say the least) since milking cows is animal cruelty...

I've been talking up this idea to folks all day and while everyone likes the name, they all laugh at the concept! One person said they hoped PETA wasn't getting government funding to push this idea.

I really don't think a name change is going to affect anyone's eating or fishing habits...it'll just make us have to get used to a new name.Oass the hushpuppies, please. Munch, Munch!

This seems to be getting quite a bit of coverage so who knows...maybe it will catch on! One comedy show suggested that in a trade off, "real" cats should now be known as "landfish." I have three landfish who all like to eat sea kittens!
