People love animals really a lot sometimes. In fact, people love animals so much that they have birthday parties for their cats, weddings for their dogs, and teach monkeys how to dance while tethered to a stick to help panhandle for money on the streets of third world countries.
But the fact of the matter is that no one loves animals more than PETA, and there really is no better proof of this love than recruiting sometime celebrities to pose in the buff for ads promoting a vegetarian lifestyle, because everyone knows that there is nothing that says ‘stop treating animals cruelly, and especially stop frying them and eating them’ than a naked woman sprawled out on a poster.
That’s what Alicia Silverstone probably thinks anyway, because she’s the latest PETA-nudie to strip down for the vegetarian cause.
You remember PETA, right? If you’re anything like us your mouth starts to water at the mere mention of PETA, thinking you’re going to be treated to some delicious flatbread, possibly wrapped around toasty balls of falafel. But PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), is of course the animal rights activist group that taught us that Carrie Underwood is currently the most sexy non-carnivore there is, ambushed Beyonce Knowles for taping a baby alligator’s people-eater shut, and sacked Heather Mills because her ex-step daughter threw a fit, or something.
PETA has also brought us lots of nude/mostly nude women trying to save animals over the years, including Pamela Anderson, Sadie Frost, Melissa Rivers, and a bunch of other people we’ve barely ever heard of. And now, PETA has recruited Alicia Silverstone for the latest nude campaign. We’re not sure why nekkid ladies would make anyone want to stop eating animals, but we’re just counting our blessings that they didn’t employ other celebrity PETA supporters Kevin Nealon and Forrest Whitaker.
We don’t know about you, but the reference to Alicia Silverstone makes us furrow our brow and go "oh, yeaaaaah… wasn’t she in that abysmal Batman movie forever ago? No, not the abysmal Batman movie with Val Kilmer, the other abysmal Batman movie." Anyway, good for Alicia Silverstone for getting her naked self back out there into media circulation. The ads – which are targeting the state of Texas – have already created controversy for their revealing content and have been pulled from Houston, which is reportedly one of the undealthiest cities in the United States. Nonetheless, we're sure the citizens of Dallas, TX – where the ads are still running – will appreciate Alicia Silverstone's efforts and contemplate vegetarianism right before they wrap the poster of naked Alicia Silverstone around a pastrami bacon burger and deep fry it.
Keep in mind that hecklerspray loves animals too, you know. We can’t wait for the day when we’re old and saggy and grey so we can get, like, ten cats that follow us around the neighbourhood as we scrounge through the trash bins for lemon rinds and batteries. So, we really applaud Alicia Silverstone for supporting a cause she believes in so strongly.
At least, we would applaud Alicia Silverstone, but we’re too busy scarfing down a mouth-smackingly delicious bucket of barbecued chicken between shots of a mutton milkshake while wrapped up in our granny’s mink coat to do that.
