"PETA Files"

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has rather poorly names blog; 'PETA Files'. If you do not see the reason, just read it out loud as one word; it sounds like 'pedophiles'. I can not decide if PETA did this on purpose as a publicity stunt, but I am leaning toward yes.

Chris Matyszczyk declares it "The worst-named blog in human (and animal) history"


It's called the PETA Files.

Please say this quickly. Or even not so quickly. What collection of syllables do you hear coming out?

Is it me, or does anyone else conjure something truly unpleasant from the pronunciation of this name?

Did not one extremely well-meaning person tear their eyes, ears, and mind away from the subject of animal cruelty to say to themselves, and perhaps even to others, when this name was proposed: "You know, my friends. I think the PETA Files moniker might be a fraction problematic."

In all honesty, I am extremely concerned. You see, as I peruse the PETA Files, I see a post from Monday entitled "Ronald McDonald Gets Creamed."
