    PETA is a vile organization, and should be opposed at every oportunity, even this one.

    Kat will have your tongue :sagrin: but I am not a fan either.

    However, the retort on not killing the animal first is absurd.

    Oh, I'm no huge PETA fan, but I do find that they're occasionally useful in drawing attention to some pretty barbaric practices (like this one). But I was telling someone about live-octo eating the other day, and had to admit that there was no guarantee that the killing method for octopuses served dead was actually more humane (e.g. skewering and hanging to dry/die slowly, beating to death). Personal solution: don't eat them, period. :wink:
