When an angler caught a near-record 22-pound lobster near Massachusetts, he was sent to a fish market in Pittsburgh. PETA pleaded for his life while PETA offered a hefty sum to eat him. Confused? The first PETA is "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals," the nutty group mentioned earlier this week (see Wednesday). The second PETA is the first PETA's funny knock-off group, "People for the Eating of Tasty Animals." It appears the first PETA won. The fish market donated the lobster to the local zoo–where he died the next day. From U.S. News & World Report, 3/14/2005, p. 21.
