Veggie Love: PETA's crazy new ad

    Apologies if this is a D_B, I did a search, but I don't think anyone's posted this yet. Apparently PETA has added to its zany accomplishments by cooking up this over-the-top vegetarianism ad for the Super Bowl. Only problem is, NBC rejected it for being too sexy. Among the lists of NBC's concerns:

    "licking pumpkin
    touching her breast with her hand while eating broccoli
    rubbing pelvic region with pumpkin
    screwing herself with broccoli (fuzzy)
    licking eggplant"

    There are more.

    This list is here: http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/01/veggie_love.php

    Website for the video is here: http://www.peta.org/content/standalone/VeggieLove/Default.aspx?c=pbsaec09

    This is an incredible ad, though I'm surprised if they went this far, why they didn't just go straight to using squash and other more phallic vegetables (Butternut Squash is more than suggestive enough). Ah well. At least they didn't have the asparagus mingling with the sweet anise.

    Edit: Changed the subject title; was pretty stupid before.

    If they didn't go far enough to get the as banned, no one would care or watch it. Now they are getting hits on the site, because people are just curious.

    Eggplants and other fruits & veggies can be VERY SEXUALLY SUGGESTIVE if posed properly

    I eat meat, and have no problem doing so. I do, however, think the part where the animal is rendered dead should be done in a quick and pain-free method. Actually, it has to be done that way, or the adrenaline would ruin the meat. Just sayin.

    I eat only free-range beef and chicken, but I have to kill a lot of the damn sheepherders who are always trying to fence my beeves in.

    I suddenly want to eat a salad the size of a living room.

    I thought the hot tub soup looked promising.

    Out of context, that sounds unspeakably gross.
