PETA ...Nah, I Think PITA Is More Appropriate

Beyonce Knowles offered her fans a chance to have dinner with her at the classy Nobu 57 restaurant in New York City if they were the highest bidder on eBay. Although my first inclination was to find out how much the top bidder actually paid for such an event ... and why, I really got a kick out of who the auction winner was. Apparently, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) snuck in the highest bid so they could meet with Beyonce and question her in public about the use of animal fur in her clothing line House of Dereon. A spokesperson for Ms. Knowles told the Associated Press on Friday that Knowles had no comment on the incident. Personally, she should be happy this meeting with PETA was only a dinner conversation gone bad ... she got off easy. The usual tactics employed by these over the top animal lovers typically consists of inciting public riots and burning down fur processing plants. Both of which I never really could quite understand, riots hurt people which are ... in essence ... animals, and burning down building pollutes the air that wildlife needs to breathe. I guess sometimes you just have to take one for the team to get your point across.
