Published by PETA.

My New Year’s resolution this year is to finally cancel the membership to my gym, which I enrolled in around this time last year in a fit of optimism and utter lunacy. The people at my gym are notoriously cunning, and last time I went there to try and end things, I walked out with a renewed membership and a year’s subscription to their monthly magazine. But I know I can do this if I put my mind to it.

On a related topic, if you’re still casting about for a New Year’s resolution to get your teeth into, this is a pretty good time to look further into vegetarianism or veganism. PETA has some great resources for such things here, and this comic strip by Carol Lay illustrates the point pretty well too:
