Who's the real P.E.T.A.

When people see the acronym PETA, most people think of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals but there's also a counter culture group called People Eating Tasty Animals. The tasty animal organization was brought to my attention by my co-worker Frank who found a reference in a CNN article about a large lobster named Bubba. Doing a Google search turned up two People Eating Tasty Animal sites. The first site has been around since 1996. It actually held the domain peta.org until the animal right folks disputed it's claim. The other is this. The second actually links to the first; It's nice to see there's no animosity between tasty animal eaters.


FYI, Bubba the lobster was spared the pot. As much as I enjoy a good tasty lobster I respect any animal that can survive and thrive long enough to grow into a monster of its species. If I had originally caught Bubba I would have just thrown it back.


Update: Bubba died in the aquarium's quarantine tank. As Frank said when he told me this news, 'Damn, what a waste of tasty lobster flesh'.
