Mark your calendars: Thursday is the fifth-annual "Eat a Tasty Animal for PETA (IEATAPETA) Day." While I quite respect the vegans I actually know, I've always found PETA to be grating, puerile, and counterproductive. If poking a fork in a steak will poke a fork in their eye, I'm all for it.
A vegan might counter that celebrating death as a way of annoying an idiotic organization is a bit like dancing around a burning building because I think Scientology's headquarters is tacky. To which I can only say, "gotta match?"
