Earlier this morning, The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, most commonly known as PETA, filed a request to legally change their name after an embarrassing Mediterranean take-out debacle.
On March 15th the organization held a lunch for some of its most prominent members, catered by local vegan Mediterranean restaurant, Niko’s Soy Kashkaval Kitchen. PETA’s President Ingrid Newkirk explains, “The order was SUPPOSE to be 5 tubs of hummus, 3 tubs of baba ganoush, 2 rounds of seitan lamb, 5 pounds of soy-feta stuffed olives and enough pita for everyone.” However, due to a language barrier, the chef at Niko’s heard, “5 pounds of soy feta stuffed olives — enough for everyone at PETA.” Needless to say, when the food arrived there was not a single slice of pita bread to be found. “It was awful”, says Newkirk. “Our guests had nothing to dip their hummus in, and were even forced to eat the baba ganoush with their hands. We decided then and there that enough is enough. It’s time for a change.”
PETA is requesting the new name of, Folks Utterly Condemning Killing Others For Food. Newkirk declares, “We’ve really thought this one through and can’t possibly see how anyone could come up with a silly acronym for that!” Stay tuned to Ecorazzi for more news as this story develops.
It’s worth noting that today is April 1st.
