Internet Soup!

Published by PETA.

It’s time for your monthly installment of bits and baubles plucked from the sticky fibers of the Web. We’ve got a quite an impressive offering for you this month, so let’s dive right in, shall we?

  • Oh! Usually you hear urban legends about heroic animals, but rarely are they filmed and put on the news. A dog rescues another dog who has been hit by a car on a highway. Check out the video and be prepared to become a sniffling mess.
  • ‘Tis the season to be warm, fuzzy, and adorable. Paging peta2! Our awesome youth division has one unforgettable Christmas mission that you absolutely need to see.
  • Payback is hell, anyone? You won’t even believe this article. Let’s just say the hunter is in touch with karma.
  • This article is too ridiculous for words: a couple thinks their leather couch is literally haunted. Well, if my friends and I were kidnapped, not fed for weeks, and forced to travel hundreds of miles in a boxcar; had chili pepper rubbed in our eyes to compel us to move once exhaustion set in; and were then killed—in front of each otheryou’d best believe we’d haunt the ugly couch they made us into too—if only to rebuke the tasteless people who’d own such an item. Oh, good grief!
  • In true PETA fashion, we find a hero and accidental activist employing a unique alternative to eating animals—using them to keep the streets safe instead …
  • Wait, you do eat animals!? Better hope you don’t have worms for brains! This lady does, and the doctors are saying that brain worms could be caused by consuming pork. What was that karma thing again?
  • Have you bought one of every item on (I recommend the fancy vegan chocolates!), but still have questions about our quirky ways? Or you don’t really know jack about us but would prefer the Cliff’s Notes version over a whole documentary? Well look no further to satisfy your jones—here’s the scoop on Ingrid and PETA, in slick Hollywood Access–style packaging.

Now that you’ve recharged with this warm bowl of Internet soup, off you go to the next snarky blog!

“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
