PETA’s New Billboard for Opening of 50-Stone ‘Super-Sized’ Mortuary

PETA’s brand-new billboard showing a meat pie in the shape of a coffin and reading, “Not Ready to Meat Your Maker? Fight Obesity: Go Vegan”, was revealed in Gloucester today. The billboard coincides with the official opening of a new mortuary to accommodate the bodies of people who weigh up to 50 stone.

In addition to causing animal suffering on an unimaginable scale, eating meat, dairy products and eggs has been conclusively linked to obesity, and the only healthy weight-loss plan that has been scientifically proved to take weight off and keep it off for more than a year is a vegan diet.

“PETA’s new billboard highlights how meat pies and pasties will not only pile on the pounds but also result in a premature visit to the mortuary”, says PETA’s Yvonne Taylor. “The best thing that coffin dodgers can do for their health and to help animals is to go vegan.”

A quarter of all adults and about one in six children in the UK are already obese. And a recent study predicted that eight out of 10 men, seven out of 10 women and almost one in three children will be obese by 2020. Overwhelming scientific evidence shows that vegans are far less likely to be overweight than meat-eaters are and far more likely to be in better overall health. Save yourself pounds (and stone) by making the switch to a vegan diet.
