Pet Shop Boys spurn rescue shelter remix 11:00 pm

Up Your Arse PETA.  The Pet Shop Boys Won’t Change Anything- You know, those tree huggers at PETA have to be one of the most annoying groups of whiners on the planet.  They get pissed when a dirty little bug gets squashed in a B movie that nobody will every pay to see.  They protest when a sexy movie star struts down the runway wearing a fur coat that they end up bombing with spray paint.  Hell, they even throw a fit if a rubber cow gets gang banged all over the set of a student smut film shot at a crummy community college. And you know what?  Somehow they end up getting their pathetic little way once they start boo hooing all over the place.  Well, not this time, so there’s no use trying.

Electro-pop pioneers, the Pet Shop Boys, turned down a request from animal rights group PETA Europe to adopt a more creature-friendly name that doesn’t offend them.  People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals begged Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe rename themselves Rescue Shelter Boys to draw attention to the plight of animals raised in filthy pet shops.   In a pathetic letter they wrote: “Dear Neil and Chris, Many of us tools her at PETA are Pet Shop Boys groupies. Will you please consider changing your name to something a bit gayer like the Rescue Shelter Boys?”  Love, Yvonne Taylor, PETA’s special projects manager (http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090409/od_afp/entertainmentbritainmusicpetshopboysanimalsoffbeat;_ylt=Aq89bL.kjXPsFmHKQG7aKyMPLBIF).

The  band, most known for the hit “West End Girl”  and others, laughed histerically and declined the request.  They countered with a letter of their own:  Dear PETA.  Are you bloody animal people out of your bleepin minds?  Up your sorry arses.  We’ve got a wall full of gold records and milions in the bank due to our goofy name.  We’re not changing anything for the likes of you.  You’ve got some nerve bugging us.  What kind of silly name is PETA anyway?  It’s short for pedafile you wankers so piss off.”  Love, the PSBs.
