New Orleans — Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o might
be embarrassed after his Internet girlfriend was exposed as a hoax, but PETA
has found the ordeal to be downright inspirational. The group is currently
negotiating with New Orleans outdoor advertisers to display a brand-new billboard
ad that shows Te'o next to the caption "Sometimes Faking It Is
Better" and directs viewers to PETA's website to score faux-chicken
Super Bowl recipes. PETA's point? That with tasty vegan wings available at
supermarkets across the country and the Superdome itself serving veggie gyros,

"PETA thinks it's great to fake it—especially when it
means saving chickens from abuses that would be illegal if the victims were
cats or dogs," says PETA Vegetarian Campaign Specialist (and NFL fan)
Ashley Byrne. "We're asking fans to tackle cruelty by digging into a
hearty vegan meal for the big game—and beyond."
Faux chicken from brands
such as Gardein, MorningStar Farms, and Boca is full of flavor and packed with
protein but contains none of the saturated animal fat or cholesterol found in
birds' wings. Mock chicken also saves birds
from suffering on factory farms, where they are crammed into dark, filthy
sheds. They are drugged and bred to grow such unnaturally large upper
bodies that their legs often become crippled under the weight. At slaughterhouses, chickens' throats are
cut while they are still conscious and millions of birds are scalded to death
in defeathering tanks every year. Additionally, raising animals for food is a
leading cause of water pollution, land degradation, and the greenhouses gasses
responsible for climate change.
