    Did you know that if you say the word "GULLIBLE" really softly, it sounds like "ORANGES"?

    Ah Peta -- the sad thing is the amount of money they raise and the absolute nonsense they do with all of it.

    I'm all in favor of using the funds to helping prosecute animal abusers, puppy mills and the like. However they just squander so much of it on the most asinine efforts not to mention their own pattern of executing animals themselves.

    A recent highlights of their legal efforts:

    "Judge sinks PETA lawsuit"

    A lawsuit filed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals claiming the orcas (whales) are enslaved [forced to perform at SeaWorld parks] and entitled to be free by the protection of the 13th amendment.

    PETA thrives on publicity. They want to be talked about. So they do seemingly stupid things. And it works

    I'm beginning to think this is a mock group. It's almost like they want people to not support them.

    No, they are very real. They are headquartered in Norfolk VA where they have a "shelter" Unfortunately it is a euthanasia center with an almost 100% kill rate.

    I admit, I laughed!
    Not a commercial I'd want kids to see, but it looks just like it should be a Saturday Night Live Spoof.
