  • Crazy Vegetarians: What are they thinking?

       August 21, 2004

    When I got off the metro at Dupont Circle last night, I was immediately assaulted by an animal "rights" group called "Compassion Over Killing." They had a big video screen set up on which they were showing their proaganda films, and they had their people out en masse, talking to passers-by and handing out flyers. As a general practice, I walk right by these so-called "street-activists" as if they didn't exist; however, it recently occured to me that by always doing so, I am passing up a potentially great source of entertainment! With that in mind, I chose to accept the brochure that was forcefully thrust into my hands.

    Entitled "The Vegetarian Guide to Washington, DC and surrounding areas," this booklet provides just what you'd think it would. It does have a few pages with some sensationalist pictures of "animal cruelty," but nothing anywhere near as ridiculous as PETA normally hands out.

    However, I do have to say that I'm a bit aghast at the following ad:

    Am I the only one that thinks that this ad is just very, very wrong? I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I just don't happen to think that double-entendres hinting at pedophelia are all that funny. And I don't believe for one second that this wasn't intentional.

    But anything to get attention for "the cause," right?
