Playboy bunnies that is. And the lettuce was bikini-shaped. Yes, it was PETA’s annual National Veggie Dog Day in the Capitol and Playmates Jayde Nicole and Jo Garcia were there, dressed up/down in their veggie regalia. According to PETA’s blog, “While serving up the “dogs” to politicians and passersby, Jayde reminded each person that “the best way to safeguard your health, reduce your carbon footprint, save animals’ lives, and look your very best is to go vegetarian.”  This video from POLITICO shows some rather hilarious Beltway antics and, depending on where you work, might be somewhat NSFW. But every little helps, I guess! At least it’s not Paris Hilton covered in bbq sauce.

    Way to represent vegetarians as undignified and vapid voyeurists. That will surely make us all the more credible to our meat eating politicians.

    Seriously L. I’m totally with you.

    I’d like to see a ‘before’ pic of Jayde.

    I think these two girls did a great thing. Jayde Nicole has been a vegetarian all her life and she is promoting a healthy lifestyle. How do you people find something negative to say about that. Thanks Jayde for all your efforts!

    I have to disagree. As much as I respect women (I am one) I think anything (legal) to bring attention to going veggie and stopping cruelty to animals is fine by me. I wish people would listen without the bikinis but often times they don’t :(

    Well said, Erin! I think this is an effective way to spread the word about the benefits of vegetarian and get people to eat at least one veg meal!

    its getting tiring to hear these cheap shots against other dedicated veggies.
    great positive campaign !!

    Because they can’t have them wearing actual CLOTHES to get the message out, can they?

    Of course they’re working for a good cause, no one’s doubting that.

    However, it’s hard to believe that none of you cringed at the akwardness that followed when one of them was asked if they supported Rep. Dennis Kucinich for being vegetarian and they had no idea who the interviewer was referring to.

    How is this supposed to represent vegetarians as well informed individuals who stand firmly in their beliefs on legitimate grounds? I personally found it embarassing.

    What did you find embarassing ? that they couldnt answer a “who’s who” question or that they did wear a lettuce bikini ? i am happily represented by them, i don’t feel embarrased at all.

    I don’t see what the problem is. Peta uses naked men just as easily as naked women…and that also attracts attention. We can’t help the animals if nobody notices that there is another way. What they are doing is actually a form of true activism: get attention for their cause in a legal and funny, lighthearted manner…

    I don’t feel any shame at all if I were to be associated with girls in bikini’s…
