What the hell is a "Sea Kitten"??

On my way to work this morning I was listening to my favorite radio station when I heard something about "Sea Kittens." I was like, whoa...I've heard of sea lions and seahorses but never once have I heard about "sea kittens." I decided that instead of working this morning, I would research this because I didn't get the entire story before I got to work.

If you haven't heard PETA is trying to change the name of fish to sea kittens. So instead of calling a flounder a fish, a flounder would be a sea kitten. Woof.

"Sea kittens are just as intelligent (not to mention adorable) as dogs and cats, and they feel pain just as all animals do." So, that's what PETA has to say about fish. I'm sorry but a slimy, scaly, bug eyed animal that lives in it's own filth is not adorable. I see nothing about them that is cute and fluffy like a kitten. Now, don't get me wrong. I love animals. I support some aspects of PETA. I am all for ethical treatment of animals, but let's be are the most plentiful source of protein that we as the human race have.

Apparently "fishing hurts" shit Sherlock. I would most definitely not want to have a hook shoved through my lip, unless it was a piercing (which personally I would look dumb with a lip ring). Here's my question. If "sea kittens" are so smart, why the fuck are the still falling for the old bait and hook scheme?
PETA, you have frustrated me and let me down. I thought that you all put your effort into worthwhile causes. I guess I was wrong.

If you want to look into this for yourself just go to

'Sea Kittens'? WTF? That's the most ridiculous thing I've heard all day! Stupid PETA.

Can we just talk about how the first "Sea Kitten" in the picture is dressed like a cat? I'm not sure what the other three are supposed to be. I'll tell you what, if I fished (which I don't because once the hook came through the eye. SICK), and I caught a fish dressed like a cat, I'd go running.

All the fish in the picture are dressed up as kittens. It's a stupid campaign. I hate it.

This is so ridiculous, I'm at a loss for words. To think, people actually get paid to think of this shit.

When I saw that picture, I thought it was a new version of webkinz!

they must be running out of ideas or something, what in the world is calling a fish a "sea kitten" going to do for them? Its not like they will come when you call them, they wont know about the name change, do they think ppl will stop fishing because they changed their name? I dont get it. whats the point? A fish, is a fish.
