I have new respect for hippies.
At least once a week, PETA cranks out pictures of their protesters wrapped in clingwrap, parading naked, locked in cages, dressed as animals, and various combinations thereof. I’ve become pretty inured to this stuff, but I’m sure it does its job of drawing attention from the general public. Now they’ve bumped it to the next level and it’s pretty impressive.
In San Diego yesterday, a bunch of PETAneers demonstrated the savagery of line-fishing by sticking massive hooks through their flesh and dangling from a scaffold. I’m not sure any of them actually got hoisted by hook, and they still weren’t able to resist the bodypaint and faux fish scales, but still. Yuck, ouch, wow, etc.
