More PETA oddness

Well, let's face it, it's probably the LEAST they could do considering racist dog kennels and sea kittens, and I guess it actually kinda worked this time. Maybe PETA does have a plan:

PETA to Pet Shop Boys: Rescue Shelter Boys, perhaps?

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Just because they named their new CD "Yes," does not mean that British electro-pop duo, the Pet Shop Boys, will agree to just about anything.

The band has turned down a request from an animal rights group to rename itself the Rescue Shelter Boys.
The organization, the People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA), sent a letter to Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe acknowledging that its request, at first blush, might appear "bizarre."

But, by changing its name, the band could raise awareness at every tour stop of the "cramped, filthy conditions" that breeders keep animals in before selling them to pet stores, PETA said in its letter.


Excuse me, was you sayin somethin? Uh-uh, you can't tell PETA nuthin. HAH-HAAAH, you can't tell PETA nuthin.
