Is the PETA spokesperson on crack?

PETA is finally going after President Barack Obama for delivering capital punishment to a housefly on the White House grounds yesterday. When asked for comment, here's the statement PETA released:

"He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."


Are they for real? Do you think this person was serious (and thus IMO a crack addict; lol) or do you think it was a failed attempt at humor?

Please; please tell me PETA isn't crusading for "fly rights" now too...

  • awww man does that mean they were actually serious and this wasn't some off the cuff remark because someone was caught off guard when asked for a response?

    House flys only live like 24hrs in the first place right? How do they know it wasn't on it's last few flaps and was looking for someone to end it all! lmao
