Proof that vegetarianism affects your brain

Proof that something, be it veganism, vegetarianism ,or just sheer lack of critical thinking that PETA pushes in its ad campaigns and advocacy (or a combination), can affect your brain is here:

Vote Pam Anderson for President

Pamela Anderson has done so much for animals, and she's such a stunning actress, that we jump at the opportunity to help her win something. Pammy has been nominated for a Teen Choice award for her new show Stacked, and we want all of you to join us in voting for her at teenpeople.com/teenchoice.

Pam Anderson? "Stunning actress"? In the same sentence?

Her acting is "stunning" only in how awful it is, and I'm not sure what Pam Anderson has ever really "done" for animals other than posing in a skimpy bikini made of lettuce leaves for PETA. Clearly, whoever wrote this is probably not getting enough protein! At least he isn't advocating harassment and intimidation of those whom PETA perceives as its enemies, as they have been known to do in the past. That's progress, I suppose.

On the other hand, even though there was no mention of Hitler, the Holocaust, or Nazis (as in PETA's previous ill-fated "Holocaust on a Plate" anti-meat ad campaign), the Hitler zombie was nontheless intrigued by this link mentioned by PETA2. If such a service existed, maybe he could find more nutritious brains to feast on than the rather thin gruel offered by the brains of Charlie Rangel, Frank LoBiondo, Abe Foxman, Dick Durbin, or Lenny Schafer.

There's no need to bash *all* vegetarians for the stupidity of a vocal minority. I don't want any poor creature to die for my dining pleasure; however, I understand that medical research is an entirely different animal (bad pun intended).

Geez, you do understand I was being facetious, don't you?

OK, I wasn't being facetious about the idiot on PETA2 advocating the harassment of an executive's wife on her birthday, but I was being facetious about vegetarianism. Heck, one of my sisters is a vegetarian.

I guess if she's offended by this when she checks this out later, I might have to take it down or alter it...

Yes, I understood you were being facetious. I would never use such a bad pun unless I were being likewise facetious. :)

C'mon. I can think of two reasons why Pammie is a stunning actress.

Unfortunately, there are only two.

As usual I hate to admit that she's Canadian.

Heh.

I used to say that, if it doesn't moo when I cut into it, I don't want it.

Orac...do I need to scold you?

Tsk-Tsk...

You still make that particular comment all the time!

Hmmm. And how would you know that, I wonder? ;-)

The rampaging stupidity of PETA is why the two vegans I know try not to mention that they are vegan.
