(Tofu pie. Gawd, I still can't get past the idea. UGH!)
When another Canadian official tried to classify it as a terrorist act, I came to Peta's defense. While the act was juvenile, it struck me as harmless and mainly a crime of taste. (Although I freely admit, if I was struck in the face with a tofu pie, I would retaliate with biological warfare. Specifically, I would vomit on the thrower. Tofu pie. Blech.)
On Friday, Peta got a taste of their own medicine... er... pie. A local radio station mascot found a Petapeople protesting the seal hunts (while dressed in a seal costume - how cute), and proceeded to nail her with a pie.
Well, all's fair, right? Apparently not. Check out how Treehugger describes the act (emphasis mine):
PETA activist dressed as a seal gets her just desserts as another costumed crusader, Salty, attacks poor seal hunt protester PETA activist Emily Lavender of Vancouver, no doubt with a seal flipper pie.
Attacks. Gimme a break. At least the girl in the seal suit seems to have a sense of humor:
Lavender, like Shea, took the pie-ing in stride and carried on with her business.
I hope now that Peta has been pied in retribution, MP Gerry Byrne will drop the "terrorist act" silliness.
For your Monday morning smile:
