"When I see people wearing fur, it makes me so sick. Especially when I see young singers doing it—that sickens me."
We suspect that leather-shunning, veggie-lovin' singer Leona Lewis was referring to at least one half of the gruesome twosome that's duking it out in today's installment of "Who Wore It Worse?"
The ditzy divorcée on the left is skinfully hag-tastic, while the one on the right—well, let's call her the "Barbadian Barbarian." (Try saying that one 10 times fast.)
See the faces behind these "Neanderthal Fashion No-No's," and then cast your vote in today's round of PETA's "Worst-Dressed" contest.

Poet Charles Baudelaire called the albatross "one of those big birds / which nonchalantly chaperone a ship / across the bitter fathoms of the sea," and Samuel Coleridge deemed the animal "a bird of good omen." (OK, no more 19th-century poetry references—I promise!) I wonder if those guys would be impressed to know that two female royal albatrosses in New Zealand have bonded as a mating pair and are caring for a chick together after the father disappeared.
Wildlife experts are definitely intrigued. Though lesbian albatrosses have also appeared in Hawaii, no one has ever seen a pair who successfully raised a baby together. We're loving this same-sex pair, and Tourism Dunedin is brainstorming a name for the chick with two mommies. I'm thinking Ellen or Portia. Do you have any suggestions?

If we ever decide to have a Dumbest Vegetarian contest, however, there won’t even need to be any voting because this girl will definitely win. ... Not much to say about it, huh? Wow.

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.
