PETA GOES OINKERS OVER SIMPSON

Man! PETA sure knows how to throw people in the dog house. Get it?! Dog house, Peta. Anyways.

Last September Jessica Simpson was devastated when she lost her beloved dog, Daisy, to a coyote attack (I just laughed at myself for actually knowing this)–but it sounds like the singer is finally thinking about replacing the pup–with a pint-sized piglet. According to Time, Teacup piglets are tiny miniature pigs that are said to be as smart as (if not smarter than) dogs.

“I’m thinking about getting a pet pig,” she wrote on Twitter. “Does this mean I’ll have to give up pork?”

Needless to say PETA was not amused. A representative for the organization told Us Magazine: “Pigs, who are smarter than dogs and every bit as sensitive to pain and stress, don’t belong in Jessica’s stomach or carted around as her latest accessory.”

Oh snap!

On a more positive note, their ad campaigns (latest, featuring Kellan Lutz, here) are usually awesome. Lutz explains that he found his pet, Kola, in a shelter, frightened in the back of a cage. “I touched her toe and said, ‘Hey, what’s your name?’ ” he recalls. “She spoke to me.” Lutz was then warned that she was a puller, but he decided to walk her anyway, and knew then that he’d found the one. “From that day on, I loved her,” he says.

According to PETA, about 8 million unwanted dogs and cats enter shelters every year — and half of them are euthanized due to space issues. With that being said, I understand why PETA would make a statement to Jessica’s desires to snatch up some mini bacon, but come on! You can’t blame the girl for wanting one, they are pretty adorable.
