Now here’s an interesting offer.

Playgirl has offered to make a $1 million donation to PETA if Michael Vick bares all for an upcoming issue.

A spokesman for Playgirl confirms to Life & Style magazine, “I sent the request to Michael Vick on Wednesday, but we haven’t heard back yet. I figured he paid back society for dog fighting, but what about the animals? This way he could donate a large sum to PETA and all he’d have to do is pose for the magazine! It’s kind of a win-win situation!”

If Playgirl had done a bit more research, they might have found that PETA still isn’t a fan of Vick; and after his release from prison flat-out refused to work with him. HSUS, however, did take him in — so perhaps they would be willing to accept the donation? Either way, don’t expect it to happen. I doubt any  publicist attempting to rebuild the shattered image of her client would recommend dropping it for Playgirl as a stop on the road to retribution.

    I’m pretty sure the reason PETA refuses to work with Vick is because he has never truly apologized or expressed remorse for what he did to those dogs. His apologies have always been to his family and his fans for getting caught and often segue into how hard his life has been. He hasn’t ever expressed any guilt for torturing and killing animals for fun.

    Right, give the money to PETA, the organization that wanted all of Michael Vicks dogs euthanized. Are you kidding me? Thankfully nobody listened to PETA and many of the dogs went on to loving homes. Oh and FYI, nobody wants to see Michael Vick naked.

    I like this plan, but give the money to someone other than PETA – HSUS or some Pit Bull rescues instead.

    PETA would just love the publicity out of a stunt like this. But better they give the money to HSUS’s End Dogfighting campaign or a pit bull rescue group. Of course, there’s nothing in it for Vick, so why would he do this?

    who in the hell wants to see this idiot naked(i need to think of puppies now) anyway if the HSUS or a pitbull rescued group was getting the money it would make sense and ill be all for it but PETA?? dont take me wrong i like Peta but they should not get the money…

    BTW i want to start a really cool animal group so if anyone lives in new jersey my email is

    This so infuriates me…. I sat next to him at a Hawks game and didn’t have a clue who who was; all I saw were the doorknobs sparkles in his ears… but I am LIVID that anyone would want to see him naked and pay for it what has this country come to? Peta might be great but give it to animal cruelty … he got off WAY too easily!!!! just infuriating!!!!
