I don't even have words for how hilarious this is.
"To paraphrase a great philosopher, the question is not 'Can Zerg reason?' nor 'Can they talk?' but 'Can they suffer when attacked with a Perdition flamethrower,'" Bartlett said. "PETA is full of StarCraft players, but we've always had empathy for the Zerg — and for anyone who is killed without consideration because they don't speak our language."

People have become jaded to their regular antics(I never thought I'd see the day when people were bored of naked ladies, but here we are) and they're just trying to get noticed.

I suppose being ridiculous is a kind of way to get noticed...

That's kind of the only way PETA gets noticed.

You know, I've seen a lot of raaayyyge on this topic from the internet, but I have to say, I kind of like the campaign. I'm not usually a PETA supporter, as I think their position is....extreme. In this campaign though, PETA is making fun of themselves a little bit while at the same time making their point. Their saying "It's not relevant that the Zerg are not capable or rational thought. What IS relevant, is how we treat them." Now, obviously, the Zerg gotta fry. Noone is questioning that. But perhaps, we should consider that torture isn't appropriate. Torture is still torture, sentient recipient or not. I would say that this is a very gentle reminder of their position, and all in all, one of PETAs classier ads.

You, sir, are extremely generous and appear to think only the best of people.
