PETA Proposes Tofu Flavored From George Clooney's Sweat

PETA Wants to Make Tofu Flavored Like George Clooney

PETA is running out of viable ideas. In yet another absurd turn of events, the animal rights organization wants to harvest — get this — actor George Clooney's sweat to create a new flavor of tofu.

The group obtained one of the actor's sweat-laced gym towels to raise money at a fundraising auction, but then decided it might be better off using the actor's perspiration in a food product. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk penned a proposal to Clooney himself, in which she discussed the invention, to be called CloFu:

The technology actually exists to take your perspiration and make it into George Clooney-flavored tofu (CloFu) . . . we would attract many people who don't try tofu because they worry that it would be bland . . . we hope this idea meets your approval.

The star's response? "As a mammal, I'm offended," he said. I second that. I mean, I love George Clooney as much as the next gal, but the entire concept is disgusting. By George, does PETA really think that consumers are so dumbstruck by stars that they would eat something like CloFu? Are you as horrified by the letter as I am?

I always thought PETA was a bunch of nutjobs; this only confirms it. And I'm a supporter of animal rights who finds George sexy as hell. But this is disgusting.

oh dear god. Such utter stupidity - and offensive to say the least! I'd do nothing but boycott it if it ever came out.

Disgusting as this is, it could be worse. They could have been inspired by that Natural Harvest book and wanted his semen instead of his sweaty towels.

Uh, disgusting. Sounds like a publicity stunt on Peta's par; a weird one that does not shine a good light on them. This is why people make PETA jokes because of these absurd stunts. On a side note, I love tofu (plain and sesame flavored) People are close minded and I believe the reason they taste & dislike tofu, is because most convince themselve's beforehand, that it is awful; so they are just waiting to bad mouth the food.

I'm with Moletta. Come on, if there is one thing that PETA is known for it's their love of publicity stunts to make a point.

That's not the point I believe they are trying to make. Why would anyone want "clooney/human" flavored tofu? Why would anyone want "chicken flavored" anything? That is just as gross, yet our society thinks it is fine.

I can't stand PETA. They hurt thier own cause with all these publicity stunts. I did like George Clooney's answer though.

that's just foul! really - i mean seriously gross! i don't know what they think they are doing. the good thing though is that Clooney would be able to sue if they did use his name/sweat/likeness in anything so hopefully it'll never happen.
