In between bites of chowder-filled bread bowl, visitors to San Francisco tomorrow will be compelled to ask: What about the fish?
Activists from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will don mermaid outfits and dispense with their tops in order to raise awareness about the plight of hooked ocean food, according to SF Weekly.
"These sexy sea creatures want you to stop eating fish," the newspaper reported.
Three activists will be "wearing nothing but a kinky fins," according to the newspaper. They'll hold signs reading "Sea Life, Not Seafood," and they'll be around during the lunch hour and thereafter tomorrow.
Yes, and they'll be topless. Gender not specified, but one can assume.
According to PETA spokesman Matt Bruce, "Scientific studies show that fish are intelligent, sensitive animals who experience pain and fear when they are hooked or netted and pulled from the water." Fish are so smart, Bruce said, that they can "use tools, and have impressive long-term memories and sophisticated social structures," the newspaper reported.
