So, maybe you’re having a day where perhaps you’re sitting at work on 2 hours of sleep.
The huge cup of coffee is keeping you perked up, but not alive enough to really get worked up over anything (besides someone getting in the way of you getting a nap).
But if there’s one group you can always count on to do something galactically stupid, it’s PETA.
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.”
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.
Seriously?? I’ll give one thing to PETA. They are committed to their cause. They’ll do anything to promote their myopic view of saving the animal world.
That, and they’re not afraid to utilize their feminine wiles to draw attention to their cause.
And I support that.
