I still say that PETA is a very well-funded practical joke. Now they’ve started a campaign to call fish “sea kittens
” so they’ll seem more cuddly and less edible. How could that not be a joke? I kind of want to buy a tshirt myself. And as Ed Morrissey says, there might be unexpected blowback
Changing the name to “sea kittens” won’t make them any less tasty, or
for that matter, any less slithery and slimy, either. It might give
people a few ideas about land kittens that PETA may not like, however.
Apparently, PETA has been carrying on this campaign in China for years.
