PETA Wants To Run Commercial Of Hot Girls Fellating Vegetables During the Super Bowl

You work that carrot, baby! In 2009, PETA was willing to pay millions to run a commercial during the Super Bowl of scantily clad women making out with vegetables. The networks declined to air "Veggie Love" — think of the children! — but now PETA is trying again with an "outtakes" video. Once again they've…

Chad Ochocinco Strips For PETA

It never occurred to me that there was more to Chad Ochocinco than football, lusty women, and his hot bod. But the football star is now letting us know he's an animal lover too. Chad is the latest male celebrity to strip down for PETA's "Ink Not Mink" ad campaign. Let's hope he's also not…

PETA Offers To Pick Up Lindsay Lohan’s Rehab Bill

When Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to go back to rehab until January 3rd rather than having to do another stint in the slammer, there was just one teensy problem. Allegedly, Lindsay can't afford the three-month $50,000 bill at the Betty Ford Center. Rumors swirled that she's been looking for a sponsor. And now one ha…

Pam Anderson Turns Self Into A Piece Of Meat For PETA

Sorry, but I just don't get how Photoshopping Pam Anderson's body to look like a slab of meat at the butcher's will help ease the suffering of animals in abattoirs. I can, though, see this ending up on a frat room wall. Kudos, PETA!

High Heels With Hamsters In Them Bound To Raise PETA Ire

These high heels appear to have hamsters (gerbils?) embedded in the platform under the toe. We here at The Frisky pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of extreme shoes, from crazy stripper shoes to the highest heels ever made. But animals? In shoes? That's gone too far. Thankfully, or disappointingly, depending on your relationship to…

Our Worst Nightmare: The Fur Snuggie

We are officially horrified. Snuggie has decided to make a genuine fur backwards bathrobe product line, which will be endorsed by some serious star power. Not that we are PETA-crazed or anything, but no animal should ever have to die for a Snuggie! And speaking of PETA, you know they got all up on thi…

Stand Down PETA, Angie’s Bag Made From Horse Haircuts

Um, PR crisis averted? If the $5000 Akris horsehair purse wasn't the it bag of the season, it will be now. Angelina Jolie was spotted traipsing around Venice sporting hers (you can just barely see it and it's a rather fetching shade of ecru), but lest you think she'll wear any old luxury item o…

Nadya Suleman Wants You To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets. But What About Her?

There is irony. And then there is Nadya Suleman putting up a PETA sign in her front yard warning passerbys to "Always Spay or Neuter" their pets. Yes, Nadya has signed on to be the new face of new PETA campaign with the tagline, "Don't let your dog or cat become an OctoMom." So how…

Tiger Woods Threatens To Sue PETA Over Billboard, So They Mock Mark Sanford Instead

Remember earlier in the week when we showed you this billboard PETA was planning to erect (Am I 12 years old? Because that word still cracks me up.) in Florida to remind people to get their pets spayed and neutered. Tiger apparently wasn't too happy about it—his lawyers threatened to sue the animal lovahs if…

Even PETA Has Something To Say About Tiger’s Infidelity

PETA is set to erect this billboard close to Tiger Woods' home in Florida. Do you think it goes too far, or does it serve Tiger right for sleeping around so much?

And All Dogs Drool!

Normally I feel pretty "meh" about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and their antics. However, I do agree with some of their beliefs -- like the one demonstrated by a PETA protester at the Westminster Dog Show. But you know what would make for a better statement against purebreds? Sponsoring a dog show…

Are Bejeweled Beetles A Creepy Or Chic Fashion Accessory?

Insects aren't usually considered a must-have fashion accessory. But recently, a woman crossing the border between Mexico and Texas was stopped for her live beetle adorned with blue and gold jewels. The woman's "brooch" was attached to her clothing with a gold chain and safety pin and was allowed to wander along her clothing. The…

Watch PETA’s Sexy “State Of The Union Undress”

People will only pay attention to animal rights if you show them boobies! That's always seemed to be People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' entire advertising campaign logic, hasn't it? PETA's 2010 "State Of The Union Undress" — yes, you read that right, undress — is more of the same. A fetching young model…
