Having an opportunity to write about PETA and Paris Hilton in the same post practically brings tears to my eyes. This is because advocacy groups don't get much more hypocritical than PETA and . . . well, dissing Paris is like shooting fish in a barrel.
This confluence of dingbattery is occasioned by PETA giving Paris an award for her efforts to save seals while conveniently overlooking her own wretched record as an animal owner, which includes smuggling a kinkajou into L.A. and buying her doggies from a puppy-mill trafficker.
