There’s a Giant Hole in New Orleans, but PETA Has a Plan

Published by Michelle Reynolds.

New Orleans is stuck between a rock and a hard place. What started as a pothole on a city street has turned into a massive cavern under the asphalt so expansive that children are now ducking inside and playing in it. So PETA has a plan that will put New Orleans on the road to repairing it successfully. We’ll look into fixing the urban cave if New Orleans will let us place an ad on the pavement that will help people fix their caveperson-esque diets.

Word on the Street: Go Vegan


Car accidents are not our nation’s biggest killers. Heart disease, cancer, and strokes claim many more lives every year. By steering clear of animal products, New Orleans residents will also help put the brakes on these and other serious health problems.

We’d call that paving a path to good health.
