Meat is murder, tasty, tasty murder

I love the various streetboxes that pop up around Washington for dispensing various publications. Some of those publications are well-known rags like The Washington Post or New York Times. Others are thick real estate guides. I've seen ones for something called "Prison Art" and others for cultish groups like the Falun Gong. And then there's this one I spotted yesterday at 15th and L NW:


I didn't actually take a copy of the "vegetarian starter kit" inside, but I did wonder if PETA had chosen the right poster child for its cause:


Isn't Joaquin Phoenix currently one of Hollywood's most wacked-out stars? I'm not saying sticking to a diet of celery and tofu makes people go mental, just that there must have been better to choices to stick on a streetbox.

tofu and celery? I know you're just being the 'regular guy' who resents being reminded that he's just a regular guy but at some point you need to look in the mirror and repeat to yourself, "I'm not boring, and darn it, people like me!"

There is some evidence Joaquin's latest whack-job endeaver (Rap Singer) was a total put-on. However, the most compelling evidence (him doing something sane) is not forthcoming. That being said, one cannot necessarily link vegetarianism and insanity. Case in point: PETA's tendency to get women to pose naked for the cause.

PETA throws paint at people. PETA believes that rats have the same rights as human babies. PETA puts Joaquim on their I seeing a pattern here? Not that there is anything wrong with tofutti.

Maybe PETA should throw paint at rat babies and put them on their cover. Just to cover their bases.
