Show your support for PETA


Via AP: "For animal rights activists, sticking up for furry or feathered critters is a way of life. Now it can be a way of death, too.

"A New Mexico company is building all-wood human coffins in a partnership with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They bear painted slogans, such as 'Lifetime PETA Member' or 'I saved 500 animals.'

"Another serves up a last laugh that plays on a long-running PETA advertisement: 'Told You I Wouldn't Be Caught Dead in Fur!'

"The coffins, which went on sale last week, are priced from $620 to $670, which includes a $75 PETA contribution. Made of wood, they are designed to be Earth-friendly, with no screws, nails, hinges or animal-based glues."
