PETA may be best known in many circles for getting hot celebrity women to pose in the buff to promote its anti-fur campaigns. The activist organization has some pretty zany views when it comes to aligning with the masses.
The fur industry will be glad to hear that it is not the target of PETA's latest diatribe. The casual video game Cooking Mama is the target of the latest campaign to stop animal cruelty. You may be wondering how exactly a video game can promote animal cruelty.
According to PETA Cooking Mama doesn’t include enough vegetarian recipes and isn’t animal friendly. Did PETA hire Jack Thompson and no one told me? What's with the video game lunacy? Seriously, PETA… IT'S A VIDEO GAME!
I even know a couple vegetarians and while I might think they are crazy for passing up a perfect rib eye, they don’t seem to mind video games (even the ones that cook). PETA feels that the video game is designed the highlight the "immense suffering" endured by animals before they hit your dinner plate.
The only immense suffering to hit my dinner plate is when my steak is over-cooked. I'm all for preventing animal cruelty, don’t get me wrong. However, massively stupid things like this make PETA seem like nothing more than a bunch of crackpots.
