It's rather easy to ruin Thanksgiving for all those cold-hearted carnivores: Just get all sanctimonious and bum everyone out. In this PETA commercial, a charming little girl ambushes her family while saying grace, telling them about turkeys being "killed by people who think it's fun to stomp on their little turkey heads." For more controversy, [...]
PETA's latest stunt? After reading about how difficult it was for U.S. soldiers to get chocolate in Afghanistan, they've teamed up with Harbor Candy to make "Bin Laden Bites."

In a new feature on The Colbert Report, "Stephen Colbert's Wolrd of Nahlej," Colbert tackles the miracle of "meat science" and PETA's million-dollar bioengineered fake meat challenge, even getting PETA's president Ingrid Newkirk for unfortunate sound bites. She calls it "shmeat" — a Russian doctor working on the projects explains "shmeat" stands for a "combination [...]
