PeTA's latest idiocy posing as "art"
It seems that the folks at PeTA are back to their old ways of trying to be as offensive as possible as an attention seeking device. In the same spirit as the infamous "Holocaust On A Plate", "Animal Liberation Project" and the "he died for your sins" billboard, PeTA has now launched this little piece of garbage posing as intelligent social commentary. Like its predecessors, this "diner" featuring famous vegetarians at the Last Supper seems to have the gravitas of a feather. And like its predecessors, it too will probably be left to simply rot on the ash pile of history. Something tells me that this won't be very popular in religiously conservative Texas. I'm not sure why PeTA thinks that offending people's basic sensibilities is a way to win new converts to their cause. The similar stunts mentioned above only served to alienate people. As Einstein said, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Still, I for one hope they keep doing it. For one, it's just too damn much fun to comment on, and two, if they want to shoot themselves in the foot, that's just fine with me.
