The Stupid, It Burns!

PETA has asked the group Pet Shop Boys to change their name to Rescue Shelter Boys. At first I thought that was from the Onion.
Peta Europe has written to Pet Shop Boys with a request they are unable to agree to," reads a post on the band's official website.

But the band admits the request "raises an issue worth thinking about".

Peta's letter requests the name change because of the cruelty it alleges takes place in the pet trade.
Anything to get their name in the news.

H/t to LA Unleashed.

mrbarky,

I take it that you are not too impressed with PETA's request here.

I would not personally feel that the Pet Shop Boys should change their name. They have a well earned brand name and although PETA raises reasonably fair issues, I don't see any reason why they should change it.
