PETA: the other white meat

I was browsing around at work the other day and I found an old thread on a forum about a PETA campaign against the use of fur and leather, which revolved around naked women handing out flyers. There were two approaches there, one with either models or could-be-models, usually well received especially by the male [...]

Alors, à la demande générale (DEUX !), une autre horreur rimée, comme ça, pour de rire. La ‘morale’ est d’époque, mais j’ai refait le texte depuis, parce que malheureusement j’ai bien peur d’avoir perdu les originaux. Et ‘bleh !’ pour les déménagements à répétition.

History lesson: in 1986, James Cameron came up with a little gem of a sequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien. The name was… Aliens. It was very nearly perfect. [...]

When my memories start, I am inside a massive building, something like a cross between a hotel and a government building. I am heading towards the exit, frowning and cogitating hard. I have noticed that a lot of people that look and act like hardcore mercenaries are converging towards the top floor, in ones and twos, [...]
