The Onion makes me cry

...but only because I'm laughing so hard.

If you read this blog regularly, you know how I feel about PeTA's publicity stunts, and how they exploit young women. (I often refer to them as "Protesters Exposing T & A")

But leave it to The Onion to bring the issue to a whole new level:

Advocacy Group Decries PETA's Inhumane Treatment Of Women

Some of the images and language are not for the prudish. But it's solid gold, even at its most uncomfortable:

"Proof of an upcoming ad campaign that was so sexist and shallow,
it was hard to believe it could happen in a civilized nation."

This is satire at its best, when it bites so hard it leaves a mark. Kudos.
