Please, won’t someone think of the kittens?

In other Virginia Tech related news, Michael Vick is back!

And apparently, the group that he wants to know this bit of news just doesn’t care.

PETA, the terrorists group that just won’t stop, would like a new ad. Apparently, it’s been about two months or so since they did debuted their last one. Their choice for the ad? Michael Vick.

Yeah, that Michael Vick.

It’s your classic tale of quid pro quo. Vick gives PETA their ad, PETA endorses Vick’s return to the NFL, it’s how the world works. Welllllll, someone in their marketing department just remembered who he was. Now, PETA is saying no. Actually, they’re saying more than just no. They’re also saying that Vick should be given a psychiatric evaluation.

The gross irony of the situation?

Daphna Nachminovitch, with PETA said, “We’re not interested in being part of a cynical ploy that’s nothing but public relations.”

Because with pamphlets with titles like “Your Mommy Kills Animals!”, their main concern is clearly not public awareness, but public relations.

A Day in the Life of a 911 Operator

No matter how exciting of a job we have, eventually it becomes mundane. There’s nothing unconscionable about becoming desensitized to, say, emergency savings withdrawals or organizing a staff potluck. But we still feel bad because that’s what we’re paid to do (read: supposed to care about).

Virgina Tech students continue their rampages

Be on the lookout for armed Hokies!So a couple of Penn State students are receiving death threats for …

[Pausing for full affect of irony]

wearing costumes consisting of Virginia Tech clothes with bullet holes.

Yes, VT students are upset that someone at Penn State has moved on with life rather than milk victimhood indefinitely. These perennial victims of shootings, carbon monoxide, gravity and Frank Beamer are issuing death threats to these students over Facebook, where the images were uploaded.

The funniest response is from apparently unnamed “Penn State officials”:

    “We are appalled that these individuals would display this level of insensitivity, indifference and lack of common decency and sense by dressing up in this manner,” officials told the Roanoke station. “These two people do not represent 90,000 Penn State students. They represent themselves.”

So what they’re saying is that two students don’t represent 90,000, but 32 represents 25,000+? Or how about the one Tech student out of 25,000+, as these threats indicate?
