Did PETA Fool You?

Written by PETA | April 1, 2011

Were you excited to see PETA’s remake of Groundhog Day? Sorry! We were just joking (or “Joseph King,” if you’ll pardon the pun). We would love to free Punxsutawney Phil (and make it so that you didn’t have to listen to “I Got You Babe” 50 times in a row), but for now, we’ll have to settle for singing the praises of fun, animal-friendly films like Hop. We do have quite a few Hollywood supporters, though, so you never know what might happen in the future.

Here are some other April Fools’ Day jokes we liked:

  • Pick-A-Pig: The Rundown forces people to “meet their meat” by having them choose a sweet little piggy, name him or her, and watch their pig learn, play, and grow through a webcam … and then they have to choose when and how the pig will be slaughtered. What was it Sir Paul McCartney said about if slaughterhouses had glass walls …?
  • McShockerJust Means reports that McDonald’s is phasing out meat and will be completely vegetarian by 2030. Wanting to be a leader in environmental protection and animal welfare, the burger chain adopts a healthy vegetarian menu. In a related story, it is reported that the obesity crisis will end in 2031.

Happy April Fools’ Day!

    Hey PETA members! I am a student studying veganism and am new to PETA and as I research, I would like someone to interview and ask a few brief questions. Some questions, for example, would be ‘what made you decide to become a vegan?’ ‘About what percentage of people do you know are also vegan/vegetarian?’ If anyone wouldn’t mind answering a few questions, I would love that. Please contact me at my email: Thank you!
