Palin to PETA: Drop the Snowball or We’ll Sue!

This morning, PETA’s Policy Department received a Scrooge-like phone call from someone purporting to be from Gov. Sarah Palin’s office threatening legal action against us if we don’t play ball—or, actually, stop playing ball. Why are Ms. Palin’s peeps so mad at PETA? Well, if you’ve played our Holiday Snowball Fight game recently, you may know. The game asks players to pick up a virtual snowball and take aim at 2008’s biggest animal foes, from Colonel Sanders to the Trollsen twins to Alaska’s own Sarah Palin. But guess what, Sarah? We’ve checked with our legal team, and they say that it’s “protected parody,” or “fair game”—so the game stays! After all, we’re throwing snowballs, not shoes.

In real life, the moose and other animals Ms. Palin blows to smithereens don’t stand a chance. But, hey, our game is virtual and nonviolent. To be honest, I’m not quite sure why Sarah is so mad about the game anyways. Wielding a gun and decked out in a sexy bikini and pageant ribbon, I’d think she’d be quite proud of how PETA’s portrayed her.

Though this game is just a bit of harmless payback, Palin’s real-life hunting habit is no joke. Palin not only guns down big moose but also supports aerial hunting of wolves—she even proposed putting a bounty of $150 on their heads. Wolves aren’t even overpopulated in Alaska. The sole reason for the bounty would be to boost the numbers of moose and elk so that hunters will have more living targets for their blood sport. Pathetic.



P.S. Governor Palin isn’t the only fantastic figure in the game, so if you haven’t had the chance to play, check it out!

    Gosh, I was terrible at the game…Whatever those things are that Sarah is wearing on her shoulders reminds me of one of Letterman’s jokes last night (I really gotta quit taking naps…I end up being up way too late.) Anyway, he said that it’s so cold in New York that whatever that thing is on Donald Trump’s head is, it’s wearing a thing on its own head.

    First time, I didn’t make it past second level. Second time, I went to level three quickly. But that’s where I ended; atr my age, eye-hand coordination in not swift. I prefer thinking games (like poker) to shoot-em ups. But, I sure would like to have snowballed Sarah!

  4. I think you are thinking like sukrat, but I think you should cover the other side of the topic in the post too…
