So, Megan Webb has been crowned the 2008 West Virginia Beef Queen by the West Virginia Cattlemen’s Association, and PETA has sent her a letter making it very clear that we’ve got “beef” with the Mistress of Meat.
We have invited the Beef Queen (I just can’t get enough of that title!) to take a page out of our “Vegetarian Starter Kit”—and make the switch to a healthy, humane diet rather than promote cruelty to animals, environmental destruction, and life-threatening diseases—or take on one of our Lettuce Ladies in a tofu-wrestling match.
This earlier bout between a PETA member and a Playboy model will give you an idea of how the beef vs. lettuce throwdown might go:
And the prizes for the wrestling match aren’t too shabby either. We’ve found a reformed rancher who is offering to donate $5,000 to a mutually acceptable charity of the winner’s choosing. We’ve also agreed to let the winner design a meal for the loser. (Yes, we’re that confident our Lettuce Lady will win.) And perhaps best of all, the winner will get bragging rights.
