PETA: Nothing but class
“Jacksonville, Fla. — A new PETA billboard campaign that was just launched in Jacksonville reminds people who are struggling to lose weight — and who want to have enough energy to chase a beach ball — that going vegetarian can be an effective way to shed those extra pounds that keep them from looking good in a bikini. The ad shows a woman whose “blubber” is spilling over the sides of her swimsuit bottom and features the tagline “Save the Whales. Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian. PETA.”
Anyone wishing to achieve a hot “beach bod” is reminded that studies show that vegetarians are, on average, about 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters.
“Trying to hide your thunder thighs and balloon belly is no day at the beach,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman.”~~PETA press release, earlier this month.
I don’t think this really warrants much comment from me, except to remind readers that PETA has still yet to produce any real scientific evidence that vegans and vegetarians are invariably healthier and thinner than meat eaters. After all, chocolate bars and onion rings don’t have meat in them either. I could stand to lose about fifteen to twenty pounds myself, but it ain’t meat that’s the problem, it’s starches and carbohydrates. Ergo, PETA as always scores a coup in both offering misinformation and being offensive about it at the same time. If they could somehow join forces with Fox News, they could take over the world in a veritable tsunami of fail.
