The Proletariat Revolution has crashed!
« on: June 22, 2009, 04:25:37 pm »
This program (The Proletariat Revolution) has done something unexpected and has had to be shut down.  Please re-boot Marxism-Leninism and try again.

NEW YORK — The granddaughter of Cuban revolutionary leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara is at the forefront of another revolution _ for vegetarianism.

Lydia Guevara poses semi-nude in a PETA campaign that tells viewers to "join the vegetarian revolution," said PETA spokesman Michael McGraw.

The print campaign is expected to debut in October in magazines and posters, McGraw said. It will be launched first in Argentina, where Che Guevara was born, and then internationally. PETA approached the 24-year-old in recent months after finding out she was a vegetarian, McGraw said.

In the ad, Lydia Guevara wears camouflage pants, a red beret, and bandoliers of baby carrots while standing with one fist on her hip and the other outstretched.

"It very much evokes the tag line of the ad, which is 'Join the vegetarian revolution,'" McGraw said. "It's an homage of sorts to her late grandfather."

When did "homage" become a synonym for "mockery"?

PETA makes the best cannibal pron out there.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable

You know, I'm not El Che's biggest fan, but you've got to feel sorry for the guy. The way his image is used is a far worse violation of the dead than necrophilia.

You mean a synonym for "I just shat on grandpa's grave".
