If you've been keeping up with your British celebrity chefs lately, you'll know that Naked Chef star Jamie Oliver has been pushing pork products on the public (try saying that three times fast). He's encouraging people to "save our bacon" by buying British pig meat instead of the cruel other kind.
Now, we know that Jamie is aware of the horrors behind factory farming in Europe (he even has a campaign against it), but we're hoping he'll realize the obvious: That the best way to stop cruelty to animals is to stop eating animals—including British ones. Good thing we've got friends in the U.K. who are only too happy to educate Mr. Oliver on the horrors of all factory farms.
Check out these pictures from PETA Europe's Mother's Day demo (yes, across the pond they honor their mums in March), in which two very sexy, very pregnant volunteers portrayed a typical day in the life of a mother sow in front of Jamie's flagship restaurant, Fifteen.
