Remember the Resurrecting Corpse Story? PETA’s Next Billboard Campaign Would Capitalize on That Tragedy

I can’t tell if this is brilliant or sleazy.

Remember how a Canadian family kept their dead father’s corpse in an upstairs bedroom for six months because they figured God would resurrect him?

Well, PETA — the over-the-top animals rights group — is considering putting up billboards to capitalize on that story:

“Are There Corpses in Your Home? Time to Go Vegan.”

Animal rights activists with PETA are hoping to splash that message across Hamilton-area billboards, days after a woman admitted to keeping her husband’s corpse in a bedroom to wait for his resurrection.

“If you have chicken breasts, steaks or bologna in your refrigerator, we have news for you: You’re sharing your home with corpses,” PETA president Ingrid Newkirk says in a statement.

Of course, no one puts a dead animal in their fridge hoping it’ll come back to life

Like I said, I can’t decide whether that’s clever on their part or just remarkably sordid. Then again, every time I see PETA in the news, I’m tempted to try meat, so I’ll go with the latter.

What’s next? Are they going to show a picture of a deer with its front legs up saying, “Don’t shoot”? I wouldn’t put it past them.
