PETA Mocks Florida Shark Attack Victim in Stupid New Ad
Twenty-one-year-old C.J. Wickersham was spear fishing this past weekend in the Gulf of Mexico off Anna Maria Island near the Tampa Bay area. A nine-foot bull shark came up and bit Wickersham in his thigh. The attack left a 15-inch gash that exposed his thigh bone. The attack itself wasn't life threatening, but he most likely would have drowned if his friends didn't rescue him.
Wickersham is still recovering in the hospital.
The attack happened Saturday. Today is Wednesday, and PETA has already come around with plans for a graphic billboard mocking Wickersham.
So, uh, the point is that people shouldn't eat other living things, unlike other living things who eat other living things. Sometimes even humans. So, it's OK to eat animals, unless you are human? Makes perfect sense, right?
My head hurts. I may need to go eat a cheeseburger while I think this over.
