Badgley Mischka: Fur Scum

When design duo Mark Badgley and James Mischka, both fond of using fur, presented their new furry clothing line at the “Badgley Mischka Exclusive Premier” at Bergdorf Goodman department store, they got some fur-ocious feedback from unexpected attendees.
Just as cocktails were being served, PETA members reminded the designers and their customers that “there is no excuse for fur” by throwing “bloodied” mink stoles, with heads and legs still attached, at the feet of both Badgley and Mischka. Minutes later, after those protesters were escorted out of the store and cocktails had resumed, another PETA posse walked up beside the designers and surprised them with giant, graphic posters of skinned foxes alongside the caption, “Fur: No Skin Off YOUR Back.”

Ok Class, Pencils Done
Since we know you’re all so busy being active for animals, we figured we’d try to lend you hand with your homework. We’re not going to write your papers for you, but what we can offer is a variety of digital information packs for you to download and use as you will. We’ve done all the research on a variety of issues related to animal rights, and we want you to use these packs for your school projects. Take part in this latest peta2 mission, and not only will you be able to inform your class on important issues, but you’ll earn some Street Team points too!
Get a P.E.T.A. Burger
Vegan options are becoming more and more popular in restaurants around the world. Veggie burgers are now offered at chains such as McDonalds, Chilis, Dennys, Bennigans, and Ruby Tuesdays just to name a few. We have to give props where they’re due, and Howard’s Pub in Ocracoke, NC gets a big thumbs up for their PETA Burger which is absolutely delicious.

P.E.T.A. Burger

If you’re ever anywhere near Ocracoke, do yourself a favor and try one. It does the PETA name justice!
