People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are turning to tomatoes to help wage the war against wearing fur.
On a page of the PETA website entitled “Revenge of the PETA Tomatoes,” the animal rights organization encourages throwing this fruit with the tendency to splat on impact at those wearing fur and have even placed “throw me at a fur-wearer” stickers on some market tomatoes.
PETA recommends the Rambo Red, Cherry Bomb, “Terminator,” Beefsteak, Salad, and Apple varieties “to give you the most squash for your cash.” Or, burst for your buck perhaps?
The following is a warning posted on the page:
Fur-wearers, be warned–vigilante vegetables are ready to paint the town red. If you still wear fur–despite the fact that animals are bludgeoned, electrocuted, poisoned, gassed, shot and have their necks broken just so you can look old, fat, or really cheap–you’d better be prepared to meet your ‘mater. No mink stole or raccoon wrap is safe from a pulpy projectile that’s gone to seed.
Whether or not one agrees with PETA’s viewpoints, I can’t help but ask–hey, what did the tomatoes do?
