PETA Wants Video Game Stereotype Beaten For Dressing Like Raccoon Dog
Beloved pretend video-game character "Mario" is in big trouble with the only organization on Earth known for not torturing animals: PETA. Taking a break from capturing naked girls to get the attention of anusburger-chomping slobs, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has turned its attentions to the pixelated Italian-American handyman because he is wearing … a tanooki suit … which is, uh … a suit of clothes “resembling a Japanese tanuki raccoon dog.”
Is there really such a thing as a Japanese tanuki raccoon dog? Oh, apparently there is. And PETA is not liking how Mario runs around dressed like one, sometimes, because that is racist against raccoon dogs and because “by wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur.” And it is not okay to wear fur, unless you are some kleptocrat's Ukrainian hooker wife who will soon be led to the guillotine by the #OWS mobs.
