PETA's Bizarre 'Anti-Animal Language' Chart Has Everyone Making Their Own—And They Are Pure Meme Gold
Twitter: @WaterstonesTCR

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.

People Break Down Which TV Shows No One Else Seems To Remember

As a kid, I remember being obsessed (like obsessed) with David the Gnome and his fox Swift. I was tuned in daily to watch the adventures, get all misty eyed for the hurt animals the gnomes saved, and sob in abject wonder when the gnomes finally lived all 400 years of their gnome life and transitioned into the trees that make up the woods they live in.

The trees are their ancestors, y'all! The treeees! They protect the trees because they're family. Trees grow intertwined because they were so in love when they were gnomes.

Fam! This show was everything ... except memorable for other people, because I was in my 30s talking to someone from another country before I met the first person who remembered this show.

Which, honestly, is kind of insulting to gnomes and trees.

Working in entertainment production is one of those things that sounds awesome - and make no mistake, it is.

It's just that it's also one of those jobs that means when your partner calls you at 1 in the morning to ask where you are, and you tell them you're out measuring lemons for Beyoncé... it's not a euphemism and it's not that weird.

Queen Bey wants a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room, Queen Bey gets a bowl of 15 evenly sized lemons for her dressing room.

And because catering runners care about doing their jobs well and usually have a multi-tool on them anyway, Beyoncé is getting the sexiest, most uniformly sized, lemons we can find.

In spite of considerable work being, and progress, made to change things, it remains a fact that men have countless advantages in modern society.

In addition to not having to deal with several biological issues all women must endure, men still seem to have the upper hand when applying for positions of power, or being trusted with major responsibilities.

As a result, those who do not identify as men often roll their eyes when men of any age offer even the slightest complaint.

Which doesn't mean that plenty of men still maintain that there are definite downsides to carrying those he/him pronouns.
