Really, PETA?! Really?!?

I realize that (a) I haven't posted anything over here in quite a while, (b) I haven't posted a "Jumped the Shark" Friday bit in even longer, and (c) it's not even Friday.

But it is Groundhog Day.

So all I have to say is...come on, PETA!!  Are they serious?  They want to replace Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog with a robotic animal.  And as far as I can tell, they're not kidding.

Aside from the fact that Phil is one of the most spoiled little marmots on the planet (which he has earned), I'm just not sure I could get behind celebrating "Groundhog-like Cyborg Day".

Okay, I'm done ranting.

They also tried to get people to call fish "sea kittens". Because, well, you know -- everyone likes kittens and no one would dare eat one. o_O

Rena,
Y'know what's funny? I actually wrote a post about the PETA sea kitten campaign about a year ago. I didn't bother to look it up, but it irked me when I heard about it.

Robotic Groundhogs are the first step to the robotic apocalypse. PETA could bring us all down.
