PETA To Provide Another Gawking Opportunity

Today! At noon! At the corner of San Francisco and Lincoln!

"PETA's sexy nude activists will climb into a giant bed and hold signs that read, 'Fur--Out, Love--In,' to take their message of compassion in fashion to consumers for Valentine's Day," says the animal rights group, whose most recent campaign involved cartoon sea creatures dressed up like cats, or something.

Apparently, that wasn't such a hit as nekkid celebrity activists. So it's back to basics:
PETA wants consumers to know that animals trapped for fur suffer excruciating pain before their chests are stomped on or their necks are broken by trappers. On fur farms, animals spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy cages before they are killed by poisoning, anal electrocution, or neck-breaking. In China--now the world's leading fur exporter--animals, including cats and dogs, are sometimes skinned alive.

"Compassion is a big turn-on, but fur-wearers leave me cold," says valentine vixen and PETA member Nadia Elmuanier. "By showing some of our skin, we hope to save animals' skins."

They forgot to mention, she's also quite the wordsmith.
