Over the years PETA has produced some pretty offensive ad campaigns, their latest PSA though just has people laughing at them.


PETA has tried almost everything to get their message out there -- naked celebrities, insulting the disabled, and let's not forget, comparing everyone who eats meat to Nazis.

In their crusade for the ethical treatment of animals though their latest attempt at converting meat eaters might be the most ridiculous yet.

Earlier this month the animal rights group tweeted out its bizarre new initiative attempting to change what it called "anti-animal language."



In hopes of changing how we think about about animals PETA suggested some new alternatives to common English phrases that were a little more "animal friendly."


The reaction was completely predictable. Twitter immediately began mocking the ridiculous suggestion.









Eventually people realized the format was a comedy gold just waiting to be mined and they started creating their own versions.



This was something Twitter could get behind.








And pretty soon there were new versions everywhere.












It turns out the format could be adapted to just about anything.









PETA may not have gotten people to change their language, but they did get them talking about PETA again. Guess there's more than one way to skin a cat.

I don't miss high school or the people in it. People who seem to have peaked in high school also weird me out. How? Why? I can definitely tell you that life got much more interesting the older I got (my 20s were way more fun than any of my time in high school). If you were to ask me if I have any regrets, I suppose I would say that I wish I had been more assertive and stood up for myself more. Depression has a way of complicating goals like that, though. Let me tell you: It feels nice to be so much healthier than I was then.

When we are on the outside looking in, it can feel so obvious that a relationship is doomed.

When we offer advice to friends, family, or people oversharing at a party, the correct next move often seems wildly obvious: get out of that relationship.

Some people don't take breakups very well. And those that don't can sometimes engage in behavior that others might view as bothersome, unsettling, even toxic.

Others engage in abusive behavior during the relationship, a major red flag that some people might not take seriously until it's too late.
