In case you were wondering if PETA have completely lost their collective freaking mind, please permit me to present Exhibit #45,829-A, the Sea Kittens.
People don’t seem to like fish.
That depends upon how they’re prepared, I suppose.
Whoever was in charge of creating a positive image for fish needs to go right back to working on the Britney Spears account and leave our scaly little friends alone.
So… Nature has a PR team? Well now. Most of the marketing & PR types I’ve ever known like to hang out at sushi bars, which seems like a major conflict of interests in this case, doesn’t it?
(And: Britney Spears? Really? You guys couldn’t even try to keep this idiocy timely in some fashion?)
…We’re going to start by retiring the old name for good. When your name can also be used as a verb that means driving a hook through your head, it’s time for a serious image makeover.
I have a clue for the folks at PETA: Small stupid scaly animals do not care about their “image.”
(On another note, I know people who put metal into their heads for decorative purposes, so there goes that part of their argument.)
And who could possibly want to put a hook through a sea kitten?
Many people. Some call them… fishermen.
Right. Like calling a fish by some cutesy name (let alone a creepy attempt at anthropomorphism) is going to eliminate from all humanity the urge to hook, net, gut and deep-fry those tasty critters. May I invite y’all to rejoin this little thing we call, “Reality”?
