It's supposed to guilt you out of eating them.

They've even got a website targeted for kids. You can make your own "sea kitten" and everything.

Because we all know that every fish lives in the sea.

EDIT: This makes me want to eat fish even more now. I'll take an order of deep fried kittens, please!

Rogue eats kittens!

I love how just below the fish there's the caption, "Tasty."

Yep, that's the loving name I gave it. Glad you like it.

I was mentioning to a friend that I'm really looking forward to ordering sea kittens and chips at a restaurant.

Reminds me of my high school days when we were told to replace "French" with "freedom" in front of fries and toast.

ROFL. I just looked at my ktten and thought.... "I couldn't eat you..." But then again, why are fish being called felines? How does that work? meh. =/ PETA is weird.

If they haven't before, they've crossed the line. Really. "Sea kittens"!?

Some little kid: "Mommy, what are we having for breakfast?"
Some mom: "Sea Kittens."

I genuinely laughed out loud. And I declare that great white sharks be officially called "nature's snuggle duckies."

Welcome to the board, LastNote!

EDIT: Sorry, Belial. When I first read your comment, I thought you said "I could eat you" in reference to your cat, making the PETA campaign all that more moot.

Probably the point in calling it Sea Kittens is to make it harder for people to eat fish.

PETA is a very stupid foundation anyway.

I think I scared the neighbors by laughing... nature's snuggle duckies!

But seriously, PETA has done some dumb ass shit in their time, but sea kittens? Really? Why don't people come down as hard on them as they did on the tobacco companies for targeting kids?

I did like the crack that they made at Bush as far as fish being smarter than him, but otherwise... wtf?
