PETA’s Top 10 Patriotic Ads

Published by PETA.

As folks fire up their grills, load their children into station wagons bound for fireworks displays, or just go out to the bars in celebration of a day off (that would be me), let’s all stop for a moment and take a look-see at some of the hilarious and provocative patriotic ads that PETA has created over the years. I proudly present PETA’s top 10 patriotic ads:10. Obese in the U.S.A.—Go VegetarianJust when you were wondering how you could possibly incorporate a Bruce Springsteen reference and some seriously husky butt crack, PETA came to your rescue with this one. 9. I Threw a Party but the Cattlemen Couldn’t Come (90’s Version)Sex, sex, and … sausage links? 8. I Threw a Party but the Cattlemen Couldn’t Come (New Version)Sure, it’s the same concept, but it’s like twenty times hotter. Too bad those cattleman have such busy schedules.7. We Want You to Go VegetarianIf the military had used this image on recruitment posters during World War II, the U.S. might very well have conquered the world.
6. Road to the GreenhouseIt feels odd to call puppetry of produce “cute,” but I really lean toward saying that it’s appropriate in this case. Oh, and don’t miss the outtakes!5. Drill Sergeant Michelle Manhart: I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear FurYou might remember back when Sargent Manhart made headlines for her spread in Playboy magazine, but we’ll always know and love her best for speaking out against fur.4. We Can Do It (Featuring Playmate Lauren Anderson)Oh, Rosie! You’re absolutely … riveting. 3. and 2. It’s a tie! Did you ever sit through the State of the Union Address and think, “Man, I wish the president would just shut up and bring out a totally naked girl.” Well, we decided to help you out with that. If you’re at least 18 years old, please check out our State of the Union Undress for 2007 and 2008.1. Chris P. Carrot for PrezRemember all the hubbub about counting votes in the 2004 election? When people announced that the race was down to just Kerry and Bush, I thought, “Really? What about Chris P. Carrot?” Though I’ve been crushed since his defeat, I’m still hopeful that he’ll start a last-minute write-in campaign for ’08.Posted by Sean Conner

“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
