Clooney-Flavored Tofu

This brings back memories of Hufu (Human-Flavored Tofu). After coming into possession of some of George Clooney's sweat, which had soaked a gym towel he used, PETA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote to the movie actor to ask him if they could use his sweat to produce Clooney-Flavored Tofu (CloFu). She suggested it would be a way of encouraging people to eat more tofu. Clooney replied, "As a mammal, I'm offended."

I'm a bit confused whether the tofu would taste like Clooney's sweat, or would it taste like Clooney's actual flesh? Either way, it sounds unappetizing. (Thanks, Big Gary!)

Actually, anything that will generate some press is what PETA is into now.

I think that's pretty much what PETA's ALWAYS been into, Mark. It seems to work pretty well for them, though. I'll bet that their membership takes a jump following one of their more attention-getting stunts.

Yes, some of the things PETA does will piss off some people, but many, if not most, of those people wouldn't want to join the group anyway.

As long as the press keeps taking the bait, I expect PETA to keep pulling publicity stunts. They're MUCH cheaper than buying a full-page ad in USA Today.

So, they don't want people using animals for food,
AND they're pushing human flavored tofu?

If you ask me, PETA's just demonstrating that vegetarianism is a a gateway behavior to cannibalism!
