Where can you see Bryan Adams
rubbing elbows with Leo Tolstoy and Russell Simmons
hanging with Leonardo da Vinci? Only on PETA's limited-edition postage sheet
from Stamps.com—the sheet honors some of the most influential and recognizable vegetarians
and Pamela Anderson—two
of the celebrities whose faces will soon be crisscrossing the U.S. on envelopes—unveiled
the new postage this morning at the Hollywood Post Office.
Addressing the swarm of clamoring
reporters, Pam said, "I'm just happy to be here and happy to be associated
with PETA. … [M]y mom is very proud of this." And the inimitable Bob
Barker joked, "I was happy to do it when they told me I didn't have to die
in order to [be on a stamp]!"
The postage sheets are available at PETA's online store,
just in time to grace your holiday cards with a reminder to loved ones to think
before they eat.

Canadian Rocker Bryan Adams, a vegan and a friend of PETA who has donated his talent as a photographer to help us create our ads, took it upon himself this week to let John Bitove, the CEO of most KFCs in Canada, know exactly what he thinks about KFC suppliers' treatment of chickens. Adams said, "[Y]ou could set your company apart from KFC operators in the U.S. and elsewhere by eliminating the worst abuses on these birds, as … chickens killed for KFC in Canada are scalded to death in tanks of hot water, suffer broken wings and legs, and worse."
Thanks Bryan, for, um, "Everything You Do" (I'm going to be singing that song all week now).
And if you’d like to write to KFC’s execs yourself, you can find their contact information here.

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.
