PETA's Star Gimmick Is Tough to Swallow
George Clooney-flavored tofu? PETA wants to make it happen.

Just when we thought we'd seen it all from PETA -- the animal rights organization known for high-profile celebrity ads -- President Ingrid Newkirk has come up with this: George Clooney-flavored tofu.

In a letter sent to the actor, Newkirk said that PETA has been offered his gym towel (obtained right here in D.C.!) and wants to use his sweat to create Clooney tofu that will "spare animals from being killed for the table." She went on to explain that the science is pretty simple, like "making artificial chicken flavor for instant gravy."

Newkirk, a big fan of Clooney, told us yesterday that the towel was offered by a PETA supporter with the idea of auctioning it off, but she immediately thought of using his perspiration for bean curd: "I thought, 'What would make tofu more attractive to people?' ... I can see people having parties to try CloFu."

Clooney's not biting. "As a mammal, I'm offended," he told us yesterday through his rep.

I wouldn't want to eat a Clooney-flavored steak, let alone an actor-flavored bean curd.

Surely the flavour of sweaty old towel isn't going to make the taste of tofu any worse.

If it involves PETA, never doubt the level of insanity.

We need to make sure that these nutters don't breed. MAYBE it is time to bring back eugenics . . . . with PETA and greenpeacers to be the first targets of sterilization. :rolleyes:

A lot of them don't breed. When they do, their children are taken away by social services because they are dying of malnutrition.
