PETA slams Mario over use of a fur suit


The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals might be barking up the wrong mushroom.

On Monday, the controversial organization issued a press release attacking iconic Nintendo mascot Mario for wearing a 'Tanooki' suit in his latest adventure, the Nintendo 3DS game Super Mario 3D Land, which hit shelves on Sunday.

"Tanooki may be just a "suit" in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur," PETA says.

The raccoon-like suit, which grants Mario the ability to glide across the screen, has been a part of the franchise since first appearing as a power-up in 1988's Super Mario Bros. 3. In the new game, Mario acquires the suit not by doing something lousy to a Tanooki, but by snagging a Super Leaf.

Still, PETA insists this encourages animal abuse.
We here at TWAU BLOG have always said: That PETA is nothing more than a cult. Always sticking their noses where it doesn't belong. Always making ridiculous accusations about animal abuse.

While we don't condone cruelty to animals, we do believe that the use of animals for clothing and food is ok. As the Bible (Gods Word) allows for such use. So PETA can shut their mouths and take a hike!

They are all about collecting donations, just another corrupt group who want your money by trying to make it seem as if animals have emotions and can even understand what's going on. Well they can't!

It's just a game PETA, so shut your traps and mind your own business. We are still gonna buy the game, and we are still gonna wear fur when ever we want to and it is OK!

I may even wear a fur coat while I eat some KFC while playing the new Mario game! Now what?!
