PETA's New Octomom Ad

How does PETA follow up on its controversial Tiger Woods ad? Why, with the Octomom, of course!

The fame-seeking mom, who gave birth to octuplets last year, now has 14 mouths to feed and a mortgage to pay off. According to the Associated Press, she is in default on a 450,000 balloon payment on her house, and it could be just days before it goes into foreclosure.

So PETA came along and made her an offer she apparently couldn’t refuse: She will get $5,000 and all the veggie dogs the single mom and her 14 kids can eat in one year if she will put up a sign in her front yard reading, “Don’t let your dog or cat become an ‘Octomom.’ Always spay or neuter.” The sign features a cat nursing a litter of kittens.


Our very own Jill Harness thinks its ironic:

What’s next, Snoop Dogg telling kids not to smoke marijuana? Janis Dickinson speaking out on botox?

But I think it's just PETA being clever. Here's what the organization has to say about it:

Massive media attention is aimed at covering Octomom's every move, and it's time to put that attention to good use.

I too used to be a PETA member, and give them money. Then I decided if they devoted one fraction of the time, money, and energy to actually HELPING ANIMALS that they do to being controversial, they'd be worth giving money to, but that was no longer the case. But this is a good campaign. I'm pleasantly surprised.

Don't worry about the planet. The ''overpopulation'' hysteria is one of those made up issues, like ''global warming caused by man''.

As for PETA making sure THEY get all the publciity they can, they are good at that, if not much else. If an ice-skater wants to put a little fur on his costume, what is the big deal, after all. I might personally not want to do it, but if he does, and it's legal, who am I to threaten him with death for it. Geez.

And as for eugenics in America...Uh, that lasted a short time here, a fad, and we didn't decide on the destruction of a people in the name of it, did we. Ahem.

Good campaign, finally.

#6: In our seriously over-populated future, the only nations to survive will be those that mandate human sterilization. Democracies will fall away, to be replaced by authoritarian regimes that have the will to do what must be done to ensure the survival of their citizens.

#7: That was one of the most shocking hate posts I have ever read. So succinct and yet full of incisive rage. I may need to borrow it for another site.
