You’re going to love this one: The Spoof reports that PETA is extending compassion to bed bugs in its new campaign.

Their new “Compassion Tour” involves beautiful, naked women in raised platforms and lying in bed in a very public setting. The catch? The women are breast feeding large broods of “guest” bed bugs in order to advocate “compassion for the smaller creatures of the world.”

“I just think people tend to be irrational and overreactive,” explained PETA president, Ingrid Newkirk. “Ever since President Obama brutally murdered that innocent fly on national television, we’ve felt a pressing need to raise America’s consciousness concerning some of our smaller, often overlooked and underappreciated, friends of the earth.”

And, as reader EffeCi pointed out, The Spoof editors ran a photo of a cockroach with this story…

I was a little disappointed that they did not include any pictures of the bed bugs feeding during the protest …

Unfortunatley while this is a spoof there are some people who do not allow pests to be killed and this can and has interfered with control programs. Protecting nature is one thing but protecting active pests is another.

You should note the photo as it’s quite striking. It looks different from all the other photos I’ve seen.
