The only legitimate PETA in this world is People Eating Tasty Animals.
Then there is the other one, which we prefer to call PUTAh (People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals and humans).
Dying for attention, three staffers of PUTAh legally changed their names to GoVeg.com, KentuckyFriedCruelty.com, and RinglingBeatsAnimals.com. Would love to meet the idiot judge who granted this absurdity.
Confucius say: What is the sound of one hand clapping? If a tree fell in a forest and nobody heard it, did it make a sound?
What if some nobody animal rights activists changed their names to something stupid and no-one noticed for a 2.5 whole years?
Well, they throw in their towels and go home . . . and change their names back. Does anyone really believe that anyone really called Karin Robertson “GoVeg.com”?
“Hey, GoVeg.com, wanna go to Starbucks for a vegan tastes-like-dustwater latte?”
“GoVeg.com, Let’s see the animal-cruelty-free, cruelty to humans ‘Fahrenheit 9/11.’”
“GoVeg.com, You look like you’re putting on quite a few non-animal calories. That soymilk is going right to your waist, that fried tofu right to your . . . .”
One of the absurd name-changers, Brandi Validoid (whose name should probably be Brandi “Void”), will soon leave PETA for a career in Hollywood and she’s keeping her name, RinglingBeatsAnimals.com. Figures. We’re sure she’ll fit right in there.
“People laughed about it, and I really think that is the point,” Robertson said.
She got a driver’s license with her new name on it and tucked her court papers in her wallet just in case.
But [Christopher] Garnett ran into some difficulty when he applied for a passport and credit card in preparation for a family trip to Europe.
“Since Kentuckyfriedcruelty.com doesn’t have a social security number, it became a big hindrance,” he said. “From what I’ve been told, it’s a real nightmare to go through the whole process.”
So, they enjoyed being walking jokes. Incredible. These PUTAh people are idiots. And they want us to listen to idiots and let idiots control our diets. Puh-leeze. No-one named KentuckyFriedCruelty.com should be telling us what to do. He/she/it should be seeking help.
And that’s PETA, er . . . PUTAh, in a nutshell, minus the shell. Just Nuts.
