This story about the mom allegedly microwaving her baby is making national headlines (really, thumbnails of actual microwaves by many of the teasers?) which means our fair city is receiving a little attention. The folks over at PETA have taken this opportunity to compare their efforts to not eating meat, I think.
In the wake of Tuesday’s arrest of a Sacramento woman for allegedly microwaving her infant daughter, PETA is negotiating with Sacramento outdoor advertisers to place a billboard in the city that features the image of a person who is about to pop a pork chop into the microwave next to a picture of a loving mother pig and reads, “Everybody’s Somebody’s Baby. Go Vegan.”
The media ran with the press release, too.
Asked about Yang’s conflicting statements to police and her suggestion that she suffers from multiple personalities, Parisi said “one’s psychological stability is sometimes responsible” for such responses. Told about PETA’s proposed billboard, Parisi grimaced. “That certainly seems to me a very insensitive comparison,” she said.
Indeed. Let’s hope this doesn’t go the way of the Casey Anthony story.

Why stop there? How about showing someone making microwave popcorn? Those poor poor baby corn plants.
They just really don’t care about fending off that whole “caring more about animals than people” charge.
I’m all for blunt, in your face marketing. It works. This though? I’d like to throw the person responsible for this ad campaign on my bbq.
Am I allowed to shake my popcorn into a bowl after its cooked?
Shaken popcorn baby, ha!
Disgusting. Who would microwave a pork chop. If you’re not going to grill it than at least have the humanity to pan fry it.
Baby…. the other other white meat.
