I mentioned a little while back that everybody’s favorite horror-movie director, Rob Zombie, is an ethical vegetarian. He’s also a hell of a good sport, since he took some time this month to sit down and record our Holiday Hotline—a compassionate alternative to the infamous Butterball Turkey Talk Line, which offers fans of Butterball’s work the gruesome experience of listening to someone talk about how to slice up and burn the dead bodies of tortured birds.

Which, well, everybody likes a good horror flick, but I prefer to keep my encounters with the macabre entirely fictional, thank you very much. Speaking of segues: Here, ladies and gentlemen, is horror movie legend Robert Zombie with PETA’s Holiday Message:

Mr. Zombie was also kind enough to sign his PETA T-shirt for us to give away on this here blog. So if you’re a Rob Zombie superfan, e-mail me by November 23 to let me know what you like best about the man and his work, and I’ll pick someone to send it to. I’ll let you know if you’re the lucky winner the week after the Thanksgiving holiday.
