I love the “PETA” reference.

Slow news day? good, give yourselves a break. :wink:

Funny … looks like some kind of progressive utopia.

Of course this went viral with conservatives……Can’t have all those images of people with different skin tones embracing and kissing.

Here’s my 3 reasons to vote republican in one of the poorest states in the union:

  1. You own a major corporation
  2. Your income qualifies you to be a member of the 1%
  3. Your a racist

Just so you know, I can count the number of voters who fall into category 1) or 2) on my hands in this state.

This matches very closely with how the right wing thinks about college campuses, which is what good parody does. Problem with that is that those people it mocks don’t recognize that they are being mocked. .

harder and harder to outsatirize reality these days but humor is a most effective tool, especially as leftists have much better humorists than rightists, if they even have any
