There’s dumb. There’s stupid. There’s idiotic. And then there’s PETA:

(#StateofWomen refers to the White Houses’s State of Women summit which, as far as I can tell, is designed to advance a left wing agenda by claiming it’s a feminist one.)

Here’s a little peek at how I write. I do a lot of my writing while doing other stuff: working, cleaning up the house, looking after kids, swimming (especially swimming). By that I don’t mean I’m actively blogging when I’m supposed to be doing my job. I mean that, while I’m working or bathing Hal 11000 Beta or whatever, stuff is bubbling away in the back of my mind. A blog post, a news event or a tweet stews back there, with thoughts accumulating around it. And then at some point, usually in the evening after the kids are passed out, I write out most of a blog post.

Twitter often works the same way. Sometimes I respond instantly to things. Other times, I’ll read something, think about it while I’m doing stuff and then comment during a break in the action. I’ve learned, with both blogging and tweeting, not to force things but to let my ideas ease out on their own — kind of like taking a particularly hard dump (cue jokes about my writing style).

With this PETA quote, though, I was stumped. I would think of something funny to say and then I’d realize it wasn’t as funny as what PETA had originally tweeted. And then I’d think of a snide remark and realize it didn’t mock the tweet as well as it mocked itself. What can you say about someone who doesn’t see a moral difference between a human being and the vicious, dirty (but delicious) creatures that are chickens? In the end, all I could do was retweet it and let its idiocy stand for itself.

This is close to the platonic ideal of a stupid tweet. Anthropologists will study it for years to explore the idiocy. It’s kind of miraculous, really.

They’re black, so that explains it…

Looks like PETA – no, not people for eating tasty animals, but the one chock full of nuts – has nowsued Sea World for keeping their Orca Whales as slaves:

The Associated Press explains the SeaWorld case thusly:

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is accusing the SeaWorld parks of keeping five star-performer whales in conditions that violate the 13th Amendment ban on slavery. SeaWorld depicted the suit as baseless.

The chances of the suit succeeding are slim, according to legal experts not involved in the case; any judge who hews to the original intent of the authors of the amendment is unlikely to find that they wanted to protect animals. But PETA relishes engaging in the court of public opinion, as evidenced by its provocative anti-fur and pro-vegan campaigns.

Yeah, that’s it! And they are black too! RACIALISTS! Can these morons make themselves even less liked than this? Genius.
