PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Is petitioning the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to stop promoting the hunting of Sea Kittens.
If you haven't read or heard the story already, Sea Kittens are regularly hunted down, tortured and then fried up in a batter. What? You have never heard of Sea Kittens? That's because PETA is now trying to get everyone to use Sea Kittens as a name for FISH. That's right. They say that "Sea Kittens" like to be petted just like their ground dwelling cousins. (that would be real kittens. The kind that don't like getting wet.) PETA also says that "Sea Kittens" are smarter than the president as some can remember things from up to 11 months earlier.
They are FISH. They don't have fur. Try as PETA may, you can only draw so many cartoon fish with cat ears and whiskers or tell stories of how Terry the Tuna is lonely due to all the bad, meat eating humans, having caught all his friends.
I am not an animal hater. In fact I find animal abuse horiffic. I do include fish in this as well. It's true, that they aren't as easy to catch and put down as domesticated cows are, but man isn't quite as at home IN the water as they are on a farm. So man has to use boats and nets and fishing poles.
If this ever ever becomes main stream and people stop calling fish...well fish then I'm gonna Open "The Happy Sea Kitten Fry house." I will use a cartoon Fish in a cat costume as a mascot and sweep the nation with franchise after franchise untill it rivals MickyD's. I'll have Caturday morning cartoons and LOLcat meals for all the little boys and girls. Lets not forget the toys. There will be a whole line of collector "Sea Kittens" that pur, have fur, and chase SeaMice (TM).
HEY PETA! Put a SeaKitten next to a LandKitten and watch the LandKitten devour your precious little darlings. Or better yet watch them torture their sea dwelling cousins.
Ok, I am never using the term Sea Kittens again as it is one of the stupidest fucking things I have seen/read in a long time.
