At it's launch today the the virulently anti-animal group People for the Unethical Treatment of Animals or PUTA caused many vegans to lose their dinner.
Advertised as an new and inclusive animal rights group the group laid on a celebratory dinner at the the London Hilton inviting all the movers and shakers of the animal rights world. The dinner was billed as having something for everyone was well received by vegans, vegetarians and fruitarians alike.
Once the dinner was cleared away the real purpose of the evening became clear with the introduction of the groups name and slogan "PUTA, animals first and then dessert." This was not well received by the admittedly biased audience.
Things really degenerated when a the audience were shown exactly what they had eaten for dinner,
Pictures of slaughtered cows, pigs and other animals were shown in the kitchen and the exacting preparation was shown to remove all doubts.
The vomiting started slowly but soon developed into a chain reaction of retching and spewing.
When the furor died down it was found that all of the representatives of PUTA had quietly left during the retching.
An announcement on their web site stated that the group was unrepentant an thought the whole thing was quite funny. "Besides," one member posted "there's nothing funnier than feeding a vegan a meal and then showing them that they just ate a baby seal and dolphin salad."
The group did however concede that they were unlikely to get the cleaning deposit back on the room at the Hilton.
