The Great Wall Of China is falling apart.  (Don't laugh, it's been standing since the 1600's.  How long do you think that carport you built is going to last?)  PETA is offering to help pay for some of the repairs.  In exchange, they get to put up an ad.  "This morning, PETA sent a letter to Cai Wu, China’s minister of culture, offering to place an ad on the Great Wall that could help save the iconic structure, which has been crumbling partially because of the continuous stampede of tourists–including countless overweight Americans–at the site. The ad shows a huge American tourist, who’s visible from outer space, next to the words “It’s the Wall That We Should See From Space, Not You. Go Vegan.” In the letter, PETA points out that vegans are significantly trimmer than meat-eaters are and that a plant-based diet is animal-friendly."

Yeah.  Treat animals with respect.  But fat people?  Go ahead, make 'em feel like shit!  I mean, I thought they learned their lesson after their "Save The Whales" ad campaign that targeted fat people.  But nope, they're just getting warmed up!

Oreos are among the items PETA lists as animal friendly.  I wonder how much trimmer I'd be if my entire diet consisted of that?

And, in addition to, on top of that, you can't see the Great Wall from space.  It's the width of a highway, and you can't see those from space, either.

May I recommend some fish?  It's brain food, ya know, and they clearly need all they can get.

Oh, PETA. I love how they don't seem to realize that China has continually preserved and renovated the touristy sections of the Great Wall. And really, various sections have been being built and rebuilt since hundreds of years BC. So for them to refer to it as a monolithic "iconic structure", is just dumb. Maybe vegan oreo cookies aren't such good brain food =D

Since PETA thinks animals should be treated better than people, it makes perfect sense from their POV.
