Over the New Year’s holiday, PETA, which is not typically known for having all of its marbles together in a single place to begin with, lost whatever remains of its collection over a photo of Sarah Palin’s son Trig balancing on a rather large dog in order to reach something at counter level in her kitchen. Depsite the fact that the dog was clearly used to it, that the child couldn’t not weigh even half of what the dog weighs and that Ellen DeGeneres, PETA’s celebrity of the year, posted an almost-identical photo months earlier, PETA insisted that Palin was committing animal abuse.
Palin, in her trademark way, responded with a Facebook quip that referenced an Obama dog-eating joke from two years ago, which was oddly apropos, considering that while PETA may not consume the animals they rescue, they do something marginally more horrifying and, for that matter, wasteful. PETA fired back at Palin by alluding to an SNL sketch that they apparently did not realize did not actually star Palin herself.
Palin’s Facebook response shows us that she knows PETA about as well as she knows geography…(Also, by the way, we just sent a case of vegan caviar to Vladimir Putin—and no, you can’t see his house from yours, Ms. Palin.)
I’m not sure what’s stranger: that PETA can’t tell fact from fiction, or that they think Vladmir Putin eats vegan caviar. Perhaps he’ll take it on his famous shirtless hunting trips to use for bait?
