PETA Asks PBAU To Change Mascot Name to "Sea Kittens"

PETA Asks PBAU To Change Mascot Name
Letter To President Urges School To Change Sailfish Mascot To Sea Kitten
POSTED: 4:00 pm EST January 14, 2009



PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The animal-rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is asking Palm Beach Atlantic University to change the name of its athletic mascot.



In a letter sent Wednesday to PBAU President Dr. David Clark, PETA urged the school to change its mascot from the Sailfish to Sea Kitten "to reflect the gentle nature of its current marine namesake."
The suggested name change is meant to promote empathy for fish and other marine animals, PETA said in a news release. "If Sailfish became Sea Kitten and everyone in town started calling fish sea kittens, fewer of these gentle animals would be violently killed for food, painfully hooked for sport or cruelly confined to aquariums," said PETA's "Save the Sea Kittens" campaign coordinator Ashley Byrne. "Colleges strive for achievements in academics and sports, so why not add compassion to the list?"

A PBAU spokeswoman said the school would not comment about such a "ridiculous" request.

I'd reply with: "Dear, PETA.  Thank you for your concern and quite humorous request.  In fact, it was SO funny that I nearly choked on my piece of sirloin I was currently eating.  Luckily, I like my meat medium-rare so it went down much easier."

Don't forget to finish it off with " While I was choking, I spilt my wine, so I wiped it up with my freshly harvested baby harp seal napkin, and then finished my manatee burger".

What was that old saying "Vegetarian - Indian word for bad hunter" ;D

FAU - We got Bowls!

I thought this was a bad joke when I saw the title.

You know, PETA does some good things, but then they totally lose credibility with crap like this.  I mean, do they seriously expect anybody to say "hey, that's a good idea!"?  And if not, then what's the point?  Some head-scratching PR stunt?
