Fifty bucks and he's yours

"Buy an ad" says Tim Blair, "Encourage global capitalism’s savage inequities!" And for fifty bucks a week, why not? Blair’s site is now proudly sponsored by PETAPeople for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Late last month, Blair was mystified about how a PETA ad had appeared on his site:

The PETA ad at left was first submitted about ten days ago. I’d ignored the initial and several subsequent requests to run it, but now that it has somehow barged on to the site by itself, well, I’m inclined to leave it there. For aesthetic purposes.

It’s only running for a week. Be aware that I am opposed at an almost psychotic level to both the cause and the group, and will be spending any profits on panda skulls and veal.

Psychosis is no bar to an organisation that uses the US military and Playboy Magazine model Kimberly Hefner to sell vegetarianism.
