Internet Soup!

Published by PETA.

Some blogs are just too cool for a cohesive theme. Internet Soup is a perfect example of that. Here are all the bits and pieces we’ve been meaning to share with you. Without further ado, here’s your steaming serving of interweb goodness!

  1. Do rising gas prices bother you? Do women who insist on wearing more than bikinis bother you? Finally, we cooked up an eye-catching, pro-vegetarian demonstration to address these pressing concerns.
  2. I’m wondering if we should start an “Animal Control Gone Horribly Wrong” series. Installment two could be about a man who tried to spray his apartment for bugs but somehow managed to blow it up instead. Now all we need is someone to tase himself or herself while trying to apply a homemade shock collar to a dog.
  3. This horseback riding simulator seems like a pretty cute idea, but even my not-quite-heterosexual self would prefer to go see girls on the mechanical bull in a downtown bar.
  4. On the other side of the world (from me, anyway), PETA Asia-Pacific is taking on Burberry, with bronze-, silver-, and gold-painted animal champions telling passersby about where Burberry stands on fur.
  5. Apparently even the folks at The New Yorker sympathize a bit with the lobster liberation movement. If only real lobsters were so lucky …
  6. What happens when a non-native fish species gets transported, dumped in foreign waters, and thrives? Native populations are devastated and the local ecosystem lurches out of control—just like how lionfish are wreaking havoc on the East Coast.
  7. Last, but certainly not least, we now have the coolest pop-culture icon ever on board with our KFC campaign. Who better to tell the Colonel what’s what than the “master” of compassionate reflection, The Zen Master?

While you folks digest all that, I’ll be getting back to checking humor blogs work and probably researching how I can easily identify/avoid lionfish, which have now officially displaced zombies as my number one perceived infestation threat.

“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
