The lights are on
Those zany guys at PETA are at it again. Following in the footsteps of other hilarious parodies such as Super Chick Sisters and Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals comes a skewering of the indie platformer Super Meat Boy. The animal-rights group's take on the game, Super Tofu Boy, replaces the fleshy hero with a gelatinous blob of the congealed soy product.
It seems the hero of the actual game has been ditched by Bandage Girl in favor of Tofu Boy, who has better breath and doesn't attract flies when he goes outside.
Between levels of clunky jumping, players are treated with factoids such as "Cows are clever and have been known to go to amazing lengths to escape from slaughterhouses" and "Tofu doesn't scream when you cut it!" Obviously, the game part is less important than the fact that people are likely to play it for a minute or so, maybe laugh a little bit, and then talk about PETA's mission--to educate people about animal cruelty in factory farms, the fashion industry, laboratories, and the entertainment industry.

Hmmm....I have actually slaughtered animals (used to have chickens and am hispanic so know how to kill pigs with a machete and such) and they dont really scream if you get them drunk first....And just delicious. so they die drunk/woozy and I get delicious meals and a good game from super meat boy. Tofu is boring in comparison
Go suck a cow PETA!
Every time I hear the word PETA it make me hungry for a fat steak, and some shrimp or crab, or lobster.. Will you get the point somthing dead..
Oh peta, why are you so...weird?
If people weren't meant to eat meat, then it wouldn't taste so good.
These guys are idiots, who the *** wants tofu over meat?
Seriously guys, seriously?
Meat Boy was great!
Actually impressive. WHO Makes these for PETA? They clearly know what theyr'e doing. It just sucks that you have to play a game like that with arrow keys. Needs a control pad for sure
I dont know why everyone is so hard on PETA. I'm a member of People Eating Tastey Animals and everyone knows that they eat big juicy steaks everyday.
I love meat!! That is so funny.
PETA, i hate to break it to you but the soy industry is just as bad if not worse. Sure the meat industry hurts animals and the atmosphere, but the soy industry destroys land; often forcing humans and animals to become refugees along with the other negative ramifications of deforestation and slash and burn farming; nearly enslaves it's workers in a serf-like fashion, and releases more carbon emissions than you can count. A real wolf in sheep's clothing.
Ypu know cows are reponsible for 37% of the methane poluting the ozone layer? Just by there farting?
Seriously PETA, just grow up you eco terrorists
this is just a tad ridiculous
what a waste of resources.
