PETArded. Veggie Love ad rejected by NBC for Super Bowl

Can PETArds and Chicken Littles Conspire to Destroy Your Carnivorous Way of Life? Sure, if you let them.

Fresh from their successful attempt to get fish renamed "sea kittens," the PETArds at PETA have come up with a new marketing ploy, submitting a softcore porn video to NBC for airing during the Super Bowl.

NBC sent the following response via email:

The PETA spot submitted to Advertising Standards depicts a level of sexuality exceeding our standards. Listed below are the edits that need to be made. Before finalizing the spot, we would like to view a Quicktime file as well as a DVD with high resolution.

:12- :13- licking pumpkin
:13- :14- touching her breast with her hand while eating broccoli
:19- pumpkin from behind between legs
:21- rubbing pelvic region with pumpkin
:22- screwing herself with broccoli (fuzzy)
:23- asparagus on her lap appearing as if it is ready to be inserted into vagina
:26- licking eggplant
:26- rubbing asparagus on breast

Naturally, you'll want to go see the video here, Veggie Love, but the email from NBC makes it sound better than it really is.

So anyway, as you enjoy your cigarette, you might wonder about the point of all these outlandish marketing stunts by the PETArds. Are we really going to start calling fish "sea kittens?" Are we really going to show women masturbating with vegetables during the Super Bowl? Of course not. But how else will a group that wants everyone to stop eating hamburgers and thinks that Kentucky Fried Chicken is comparable to Auschwitz get attention?

PETA is more dangerous than one thinks, however, as they have nurtured valuable allies in the liberal green movement. The coming battle will be over what you eat and will be more difficult than you think.

Besides PETA starting an environmental movement website (which I refuse to link to), an article from yesterday's Guardian tells of how hospitals in the UK will start offering a meat-free menu in order to cut their carbon emissions. This is hardly the first time this subject has been broached, though right now the lunacy is confined mostly to Europe, but the U.N. and the Obama administration seem to be on board. Remember that the top climate scientist at the U.N. stated that we should eat less meat to curb climate change, and that Obama stated that we couldn't continue to eat as much as we want and just expect the world to say, "Okay."

Think this push isn't coming? Think this sort of thing could never happen? With Pharaobama and the hysterical ninnies in charge of Washington, anything is possible. Once again we see that global warming is the most dangerous tool in the liberal toolbox. Be prepared to fight for your culinary life.
