PETA wants to call fish, “sea kittens,” in hopes that children will stop eating all that seafood that they’re so famous for loving.
The website, which you must check out, asks, “Would people think twice about ordering fish sticks if they were called sea kitten sticks?”
Malkin has some hilarious readers who posit a few other changes to our diet.
My fellow sea kitten-eaters at Twitter share their new names for other favorite foods:
Pasture puppies: Steak.
Yard birdie parmesan: Chicken parmesan.
Tuna sea kitties. Tuna fish.
And another snort-worthy euphemism:
“Maybe we should rename rats tube puppies. Think how much nicer the NYC subways would be!”
I forget, is PETA liberal or conservative?
UPDATE: Colbert killed me when he joked that, “now that fish are called sea kittens, he’s really looking forward to devouring some delicious land fish.”
