People Exterminating Thousands of Animals

Uh-oh.

It looks like the nitwits at the animal-rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have been hoist on their own petard: 62 charges were recently laid against the organization for felony animal cruelty after allegations that they put down over 10,000 dogs and cats between 1998 and 2003.

Now, in the recent "Annual Philanthropy Issue" of Variety magazine, the Foundation for Biomedical Research took out a full-page ad listing celebrity members of PETA's "Honorary Committee" for their 25th anniversary celebration. The list includes the usual suspects: Pink, Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Kim Basinger, and Moby, amongst others.

FBR's advice: "Fire your publicist."
