I mean really.
I say this in all seriousness because it’s hard to take serious the new campaign by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Their aim is to rename fish – SEA KITTENS.
It seems the folks at PETA have come up with the notion that if FISH are renamed people will be much less likely to commercially and personally angle for them. They are opposed to fishing.. or, excuse me, sea-kittening.
Somehow they believe that people who normally have no problem putting an earthworm on a hook (most likely it’s own travesty in PETA’s view) and putting it in the water to catch a fish would somehow conjur up different images if we associated kittens with hooks in their mouths.
All this is just plain ridiculous. Love me some pets. Hate mistreatment of animals. Even have come to not roll my eyes at my vegetarian friends. But this is crazy is, as crazy does. There’s really no other way to view it.
All this ranting has now raised my appetite. I’m heading to red lobster to eat me a plate of sea kitten planks.
Mmm Mmm Mmm.
