PETA sends thong wearing women to spread vegan message in Charlotte

Residents of Charlotte got an eyeful recently when animal rights group PETA sent out a group of thong wearing women on a mission to spread the good word of veganism, literally.

Cleverly written on the backside of the ladies were the letters Go-V-e-g-a-n, when the trio stood side by side the message was quite clear and most likely well read. (See picture here).

"We hope that by turning the other cheek, more people will be attracted to the idea of changing their diet," says PETA ‘beauty’ Virginia Fort.

According to PETA, the derriere exposition worked swimmingly, as the ‘cheeky’ crew handed out hundreds of vegetarian/vegan starter kits until they finally ran out.

Apparently the young ladies were so popular with photography enthusiasts—perverts?—they had to stay late to accommodate those who wanted to capture the memory on film for posterity or should we say posterior.

Putting aside any personal opinions regarding public nudity, the message they conveyed at the demonstration was a good one. And that is something we can all get *ahem* behind.
