Poor PETA. First, people make fun of the sorely uninformed animal rights activists by calling them People Eating Tasty Animals instead of what they like to be called. Then PETA shoots itself in the foot with an internet photo frame they provided so everybody can put their photo in and say “Shoot Selfies, Not Animals” and made it available to Facebook users. But Hunters took over the photo frame with their own selfies. The count on Facebook continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
The effort was designed to encourage the world to view animals more like furry woodland friends that came out of a National Geographic movie rather than meat for the winter. Note to PETA: Cows, hogs and other animals that YOU eat also have to die to become food.
But BOOM: “Shoot selfies” backfired like a 1968 Buick that needs a tuneup as frame after frame of hunters and their kills eclipsed the PETA PROJECT to near “totality”. Poor, poor PETA. It’s back to your safe spaces.
As of print time, I had already seen more than 200 of these and I’m sure the number continues to grow.
