PETA Wants Robotic Fish Behind Marlins Home Plate
Last week, the Florida Marlins announced plans to install saltwater aquariums behind home plate in their under-construction stadium in Miami. Well, PETA, an organization that now seemingly exists only to release stupid press releases and dumb letters about animal things (seriously, what the hell is this?), wrote an inane letter asking the Marlins to scrap the plans, according to the Miami Herald.
"Being exposed to the loud crowds, bright lights, and reverberations of a baseball stadium would be stressful and maddening for any large animals held captive in tanks that, to them, are like bathtubs,'' PETA executive vice president Tracy Reiman wrote in the letter.
PETA's brilliant ideas:
- "artist-designed aquariums full of beautiful blown-glass animals." (No one call Britto.)
- "high-definition plasma screens showing underwater footage of sea animals."
- "robotic fish that can 'swim' through water."
