Question for our techie readers. Is there some way to spoof a legitimate URL to make it look like a parody is part of a webpage owned by the subject of the parody? I ask because this appears to be hosted on the real, honest-to-goodness PETA website and yet it … can’t be real. Can it?
2. While the final decision as to the use of my body remains with PETA, I make the following suggested directions:
a. That the “meat” of my body, or a portion thereof, be used for a human barbecue, to remind the world that the meat of a corpse is all flesh, regardless of whether it comes from a human being or another animal, and that flesh foods are not needed;
b. That my skin, or a portion thereof, be removed and made into leather products, such as purses, to remind the world that human skin and the skin of other animals is the same and that neither is “fabric” nor needed, and that some skin be tacked up outside the Indian Leather Fair each year to serve as a reminder of the government’s need to abate the suffering of Indian bullocks who, after a life of extreme and involuntary servitude, as I have seen firsthand, are exported all over the world in this form;…
d. That one of my eyes be removed, mounted, and delivered to the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a reminder that PETA will continue to be watching the agency until it stops poisoning and torturing animals in useless and cruel experiments; that the other is to be used as PETA sees fit;
Those are just guidelines; PETA’s empowered to deviate from them if they decide they’d rather send her entire desiccated head to the White House or something. Exit question: Who should be the lucky beneficiary of Newkirk’s ass with a note attached reading, “Kiss it”? The NRA? The San Diego zoo, maybe?
