cs-photo-rsj-01“There’s been a big stink in the news lately. The animal activist group PETA posted a billboard in Florida with a photo of an obese woman in a bikini with the tag line, “Save the Whales, Lose the Blubber: Go Vegetarian.” A lot of overweight people were offended. I’m a fat person, and I thought it was funny. If I had my choice, I’d rather see PETA’s scantily clad model campaign, but I don’t mind a good chuckle at the expense of a fellow fat person.

I wasn’t offended, though I was intrigued by the premise. Could I lose the blubber by going veggie? It sounded like a challenge to me, so I’m going to take the challenge.”

– Chef Robert St. John discussing his decision to go VEG for 30 days in a column for the Laurel Leader-Call. The billboard in question certainly created a mountain of controversy, but at the end of the day was it effective? Looks like it might have been. What do you think? Chime in and share your thoughts!
