This past weekend, the Southern California desert town of Indio was steamier than usual. PETA’s lettuce ladies made a special appearance at the three-day Coachella Music Festival—where our beloved Morrissey was performing—and wooed broiling-hot fans to the joy of soy by giving away free Tofutti Cuties. The ladies report that the icy-cold, nondairy treats were a smash hit and even turned skeptics into fans.
And what about Morrissey, you ask? Well, he proved once again that he will never let animals down. In front of a crowd of thousands, Mr. M. halted his own performance to let the meat vendors inside the venue know their presence was not welcome, shouting: “I smell burning flesh, and I hope to God it’s human. This smell of burning animals is making me sick.”
Check out some photos of our ladies at the festival:
Hmm, anyone else think a Morrissey and Lettuce Ladies world tour is in order?
