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.

Wow Peta is just downright stupid. Plus, it might help to make your point if you made a game that plays as well as what you are attacking.

11 kill streak
I might check out the game, while I am eating some tasty animals of course.
Sorry i love adorable animal and think cows and pigs are cute as hell but im deff gonna keep eating them
oh silly PETA dont you ever realize your just acompishing nothing?
besides its not like we've made any species go extinct.
not to mention animals eat eachother so its only natural
ever heard the food chain or survival of the fittest
besides meat is all part of our diet and contains stuff we need to survive that other stuff dont.
HELL IM 14 AND I CAN FIGURE THAT OUT WHEN HOW MANY GROWN MEN AND WOMAN CANT!?!?!
now please shut up
The level design in this game is horrible
be a vegetarian if you want but don't try to force your lifestyle down other people's throats, that makes you no better than the crazy religious people who sit outside my university's student union and *** us all to hell.
You'd think they'd try harder if they were really trying to convince people.
ugh. PETA is completely ridiculous.
I have nothing against not eating meat, and I'm all for no animal cruelty, but PETA acts like you enjoy the fact that cows were slaughtered more than the meat itself. They can have their opinions on things, but they have no right to start judging because others don't share the opinion.
Also I'd just like to point this out, but technically we aren't cutting live cows, so no, they don't scream when we cut them.
Pretty sure Meat Boy does not advocate the meat indusrty. Its just a silly game. About a boy made of meat. If anything, PETA should be on his side because he was wrongfully carved into a chunk of meat. F*ck you PETA. Calm down.
*rolls eyes .. moves along*
Does anyone remember when Peta sent the president a "humane" fly swatter after he killed that fly with his ninja reflexes? Now that was stupid. www.youtube.com/watch www.associatedcontent.com/.../peta_protests_obama_fly_murder.html
Go *** yourself, PETA
Wow. When will they just let this s**t go? Seriously?
Eevrytime them or greenpeace open their mouths, I just want to haul ass through a rainforest in a Hummer with a bucket of KFC and a flamethrower......is that bad?
PETAs are all just gangsters with hard on for nature and just cause they got molested we all shouldnt eat meat...

These games are terrible.
PETA needs to go back to regular protests and quit this stupid gimmicky game crap.
