PETA lunatics up to some more of their ridiculous antics.

Two animal-rights activists are scheduled to shower nude in public today at noon in downtown Orlando in order to draw attention to vegetarianism, the group said today. The two women from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will shower behind a banner at the corner of S. Orange Avenue and E. Church Street. The banner will read: “Clean Your Conscience: Go Vegetarian! 1 lb. of Meat = 6 Months of Showers.” The group has already had one shower event this week in Gainesville, and will have another in West Palm Beach later in the week, according to Ashley Byrne, a senior campaigner who works in PETA’s Norfolk, Va., headquarters. One of the two women participating in the Orlando event is from the Orlando area, and the other is from Tampa, she said.

Would you spend a thousand bucks for an outdoor dog toilet? And I thought the $10 I spent on the last pooper scooper I bought was steep.

Necessity might be the mother of invention, but nastiness also played a big role in Curt Fournier’s creation. Fournier, 34, developed the Powerloo and formed GreenDog LLC with fiancee Victoria Januszewski. It’s an outdoor, handsfree flushable toilet for dog waste. The Powerloo sits just below ground level and taps into sewer lines. It’s designed to be an environmentally safe and convenient way to dispose of dog poop. Fournier, who said he spent two years on research, said it’s preferable to taking up space in a landfill or remaining on the ground. Federal environmental and disease experts said dog waste can infect humans or other animals, and contaminate water sources.

Quote of the day.

Joe Biden has had his finger in every tawdry hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee in my memory. He has lowered the standard of debate. He has politicized the confirmation process. He has used his position to defame a number of nominees, including Bob Bork and Clarence Thomas, and there’s no road too low that he won’t travel.
