The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have discovered a new way to garner attention from the public at large. They’ve taken a break from killing 10,000 dogs and cats to go after yet another innocent group: the publisher of a dictionary.
It’s a classic tactic, winning the argument by redifining words to suit your purpose. But the notion of bullying the Merriam-Webster to accept PETA’s twisted definition of “circus” as the new standard… that’s a new low.
Perhaps some kind circus will send some of its monkeys over to PETA to fling feces at them?
