PETA’s latest campaign is to get the name of “fish” changed to “sea kittens.”
I don’t like it — and forget that I’m a dog person and not a cat person. This would just screw up a whole lot of sayings. For example, we’d be saying “something sea-kitteny is going on here.” The mob won’t like it either, because “sleeps with the sea-kittens” just isn’t as intimidating.
PETA sure isn’t very good at marketing. If they wanted to get a whole lot more people on board while staying the kitten theme, something like “water pussy” would have been a much better choice.
