PETA wants to put giant “GO VEG” sign on Hollywood mountain

Animal rights activists want their own giant mountainside sign above Hollywood reading “GO VEG.”

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals leaders say they hope to rent Cahuenga Peak west of the big HOLLYWOOD sign so they can erect their own 45-foot tall letters promoting “healthy eating and compassion for animals.”

The 138-acre Cahuenga Peak is currently listed for sale at $22 million, but PETA says it can’t afford to buy the property. Instead, PETA wants to rent it for the “GO VEG” sign until the land is sold.

What? PETA won’t spend a mere $22 million for a giant GO VEG sign? I thought they were serious about this stuff.

Maybe they’ll start a new fad. You know, come up with new ways to fill all those wasted open spaces with more important stuff to look at besides the same old beautiful vistas, acres of lovely oak woodland and miles and miles of soft rolling hills that change from green to brown with the seasons.

Best of all, those HUGE NEW SIGNS will also provide tons of new nooks and crannies for pigeons to build their nests and roost.

And people call it Visual Pollution. Silly gooses.

Just think of the possibilities:

GO VEG (Go Beef, Go Fish, Go Beets)

GET OUT OF (Iraq, Vietnam, Washington D.C.) NOW!

VOTE FOR (Obama, Hilary, Gary)

SUPPORT THE RIGHT TO ARM (bears, wolves, whales, condors)

Anyone have anything to add to this GIANT SIGN MADNESS? /Gary
