Between all the squabbling that’s tearing our nation apart these days, there’s still one surefire way to bring people across all aisles of the spectrum together: PETA crossing the damn line with their weirdness.
The organization’s name stands for “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals,” which seems like a noble enough goal… until you see some of the outrageous stunts they pull (like suing a wildlife photographer on behalf of the monkey he photographed). They’re more of a radical anti-human group than they are a pro-animal rights group.
While they have occasionally done some good, they’ve wasted millions of dollars in truly bizarre, totally useless bids for publicity. The latest case in point?
This horror that I can’t unsee.
Looks weird right?
It’s what you’re doing if you drink cow’s milk ✋ Raise your hand if you know that humans shouldn’t be drinking cow’s breast milk. It was made for their babies—not you!

Yeah, it’s exactly what it looks like. A weird, anthropomorphized cow letting some creepy old man suckle from it.
The caption reads:

It didn’t take long before nearly all of Twitter united to make fun of it…
Some people definitely liked the image more than I did.
Others wondered if the images were part of some kind of secret furry agenda PETA has.
For those of you who don’t know, a “furry” is someone who’s “an enthusiast for animal characters with human characteristics, in particular a person who dresses up in costume as such a character or uses one as an avatar online.” Thanks, Dictionary.com!
While being a furry isn’t inherently sexual, it definitely can have that component to it (and is probably most famous for that reason).
Some people were even… stirred… pretty deeply by the image.
The longer you look at it, the more weirdness you start to notice.
Seriously PETA, WTF?
