PETA Wants To Make O.J.'s House A Meat Is Murder Museum: Free Tofu For Everyone

OJ's House of Vegan Nuggets...coming soon?
In an act of sheer and utter genius, People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals' President Ingrid Newkirk wants to turn O.J. Simson's soon-to-be-foreclosed Miami house into a Meat is Murder museum.

We called PETA's headquarters and spoke with Ashley Byne, Manager of Campaigns, who confirmed that yes, indeed, Newkirk sent a letter to James Dimon, Chair and CEO of JP Morgan Chase, requesting that the banker, "donate or sell us for a nominal sum O.J. Simpson's Miami house once the foreclosure process is complete so that we may turn it into a "Meat Is Murder" Museum".


In the letter, Newkirk states the family-friendly museum "will contain exhibits that give visitors a sense of the terror that animals used for food experience".

Short Order asked Byne why PETA thought that a Miami suburb would be a good place for a museum. She said the reasoning was that people would probably have a "morbid curiosity" about O.J.'s house and that the museum would serve as a reminder that "non-violence can begin at breakfast". 

Speaking of breakfast, if the museum were to happen, PETA would provide delicious vegan treats to all attendees. "We would serve visitors free samples of delicious "riblets" (made from healthy plant protein), veggie burgers, and faux chicken as well as other meat-free fare, and every visitor 12 years old or younger would receive a T-shirt reading, "Animals Are Friends, Not Food."

Sounds like fun. By the way, Byne did mention that JP Morgan Chase has not yet responded to the offer.

Meat is so good! Ever seen a vegetarian or vegan? they look like crap, talk crap, and think like crap.  PETA should be disbanned along with the rest of the a-holes that follow it.  Put them on a secluded island with no food just salt water so they can drink it and meet their fate.

Go visit a slaughterhouse or better yet, rent Faces of Death and watch the wholesale slaughter of animals and hear their bloodcurdling screams as they bleed to death for our enjoyment. Oh, and by the way, O.J. WAS convicted of murder by an overwhelming vote during the Civil trial.

You can't make this stuff up.

Seriously:1.  O.J. never murdered anyone at his house in Florida.  Neither did anyone else.2.  I'm far from certain O.J. ever murdered anyone, anywhere.3.  There is absolutely no proof that vegetarians are less likely to commit murder than meat-eaters.4.  The world's greatest murderer of all, Adolf Hitler, was a vegetarian.

morris, your #4 is a common myth. hitler was not a vegetarian. • Biographers who wrote about Hitler (and who knew him quite well on a personal basis) openly describe his love for Bavarian sausages and game pie ("game" meaning wild meat from birds and other creatures).

• Hitler's own chef openly talked about Hitler's love for stuffed pigeon.

• In none of Hitler's speeches or writing did Hitler state he was a vegetarian or speak in favor of vegetarianism.

• Hitler was regularly given injections of a protein serum made from the testicles of a bull -- not exactly a treatment that would be tolerated by vegetarians.

I love it when veggies say how good fake meat is.  Seriously?  "Oh that tofu bacon is so good...."  Have you ever had tofu bacon?  It tastes like shit.  If you want to eat something that tastes like bacon, eat bacon.  Same goes for those bullshit burgers.  Kind of like a lesbian bragging about how good her girl is with the strap on.

There's no such thing as tofu bacon, jackass (or I should just go with your existing "nickname" of assclown?). Tempeh bacon, on the other hand, is DELICOUS! You are clearly uninformed and ignorant... and I'm guessing your ex-girlfriends are the only ones bragging about strap-ons... especially after enduring sex with you. Vegan is the way to go--meat is disgusting and makes people smell. There's nothing sexy about blood and guts.
