I'd Rather be Naked than Play Cooking Mama  (Source: PETA)
PETA says Cooking Mama highlights the suffering of animals, I say PETA highlights the suffering of people who aren't complete tools

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.

I haven't met many people who are pro-animal cruelty. Personally I love animals, quite a bit more than people most of the time. Do I eat meat? Sure. I do my shopping at the farmers market though, I prefer free range meat that wasn't pumped full of hormones or treated inhumanely. On top of that, it also tastes better.

Animals kill other animals, we just happen to also be animals as well. Killing animals for a purpose is fine, torturing or hurting animals for the hell of it is just sick. PETA needs to start doing what they were supposed to do, which is help stop animal cruelty, not stop the basic food chain.

PETA is a worthless organization, they don't do what they set out to do and waste donations that should go to helping with animal shelters on stupid ad campaigns.

They also put 90% of the animals they "save" to sleep. Yet protest pounds putting animals to sleep.
