PETA issued a press release today with Rex's Seafood in the crosshairs. Tomorrow the group will send a "nearly naked mermaid" to the restaurant and market at high noon on Patriot's Day to stick up for fish, writing that "Fish might not seem as cute and cuddly as the dogs and cats we share our homes ...

Tuesday, January 29, at American Airlines Center
We're halfway through burger week, so we thought we'd take a break from the carnivorous coverage and take a look at this video from the folks at PETA. Dubbed Stay Firm and Fresh, the newly released video suggests that men who adopt a vegan diet might be better in bed.
Those kooky animal lovers at PETA are up to their crazy shenanigans again. (By "kooky" and "crazy shenanigans" what we mean is, "Have you ever wondered if PETA is just some sort of pervy scam to get twentysomething women to disrobe in public?) According to the groups press release, they will "cook" ... More >>
Photos by Jay BarkerLet's give credit where it's due: you can't ever accuse PETA of letting cold weather, common sense or good taste ruin the opportunity for a perfectly good publicity stunt. As promised, the group returned to their favorite downtown street corner, Main and Akard, this morn ... More >>
I'm hesitant to tease a PETA protest scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Akard and Main only because all the other ones have been so underwhelming. (So much so I forgot till using what passes for our search engine that PETA was just at the same spot in August.) Anyway. This is what tod ... More >>
Just got off the phone with a lovely young lass from PETA, America's favorite activist group turned performance troupe. They're always really nice to talk to, those PETA folks, right until they start trying to reincarnate your lunch. Apparently they had applied for a booth at the State Fair of Texa ... More >>
Spiral Diner's staffers aren't letting an award from PETA distract them from their work slinging tofu scrambles and mixing soy milkshakes.

Via Geekologie"Just Add Water" never was so questionable.One thing the Internet is good for these days is finding new ways to infuse your food with bacon.

Hi son, make sure you don't eat too many nitrates.What are meat enthusiasts to wear on Halloween? PETA's least favorite costume, as worn by Lady Gaga, was a little too visceral for the enjoyment of the modern public. We're thinking bacon. It's a clearer, more-loved synthetic choice than uncooked ... More >>
Photos by Evan ClintonBecause an intern's always up for a free meal, we sent ours to that PETA lunchtime giveaway in front of Dallas City Hall -- where, from the looks of things, meatless weenies were quite the draw. Another two looks on the other side, with, no kiddin', a slide show to follow.
If nothing else, this is proving to be a very good week for cheapskate vegetarians (or, really, people who just like free food). Because, like I said Monday, at week's end the folks responsible for yesterday's egg-stremely productive protest at the West Village Albertsons will be back at the DART ... More >>
Patrick MichelsSee more pics of the protest in Kevin Todora's slideshow.If you happened to stroll past Pegasus Plaza downtown over the lunch hour, what follows may not be news to you.

No, this isn't the kind of "groundhog recipe" we're talking about... Apparently most people still haven't caught on that PETA is not actually an animal-rights activism group but rather a long-running practical joke. It has to be, right? Surely a group that gets witless celebutantes to undress for ... More >>
PETA vs. the Pope. Any time a hot, naked chick riles up the religious I'm intrigued. Especially if it's Joanna Krupa. Who? In theory, there's supposed to be some sports angle to this. Even, dare I say, a Dallas perspective. Okay, here goes: There are hot chicks and Catholic churches and ... More >>
The prized dish.A recent survey conducted by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), ranked Spiral Diner's Sketti & Meatballs among the nation's top ten faux meatball dishes.

Off limits?I find it rather off-putting when militant vegans say things like, "How vegan are you?" or "[I'm] a true vegan." Hmm...guess I didn't realize this was a competition. Fact is, no one living in modern day society can be completely vegan. As one of my pals puts it, "If you're breathing ... More >>

"Little boxes on a hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky, little boxes, little..." Okay, okay--I'll stop. But doesn't The Colony remind you of that town Agrestic from the show Weeds?
