on—you know we couldn't let Justin Timberlake's performance at the White House go unmarked by a tribute to
his immortal Saturday Night Live skit in which he (literally) sang the praises of vegan eating:
Are you thinkin'
about your he-ealth,
oh, oh? Then veg out! No meat, so chic.

I can't decide if I would rather see PETA's Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity winners shoot a "Veggie Love" commercial together or do a comedy sketch about which one of them is hotter. Either one would be sure to be hilarious, since Kristen Wiig's and Russell Brand's comedy (and vegetarian pork) chops took them straight to the top of this year's competition.
As a previous Sexiest Vegetarian in the U.K. winner, Russell might be nearing Sexiest Vegetarian world domination. When Kelly Ripa recently asked him if he supplemented his diet with fish oil, Russell responded, "I'm vegetarian. I think it's cruel to squeeze oil out of a fish. Also, I don't like the idea of dry, oil-less fish swimming about."
Fans of Saturday Night Live and the hit movie Bridesmaids will be excited to hear of Kristen Wiig's coronation. Kristen, who credits her toned physique to running, yoga, and, of course, her healthy diet. We'll say "I do" to that.
Congratulations to both winners!

A member of PETA's herd of "cows," who were in L.A. earlier this week to protest the plethora of leather at the Los Angeles Shoe Show, gives Will Ferrell a run for his money with the cowbell.
If you've had all the cowbell you can take, check out our cruelty-free clothing guide, which includes a list of companies that sell shoes guaranteed not to incur the wrath of cows.

Live from the PETA Files, its SNL's "Clucky the Cluckin' Chicken" commercial!
Hmm, I'm kind of lovin' the idea of turning this into a spoof of McDonald's. What do you think? Would you like to see Clucky take on the killer clown?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
