Wow! It has been ages since my last blog.
Last week, I learned about a horrible ad campaign launched by PETA.
It is aimed at fat people.
"Save the Whales. Loose the blubber. Go Vegetarian."
Where to begin?
I bitched about this campaign all week to anyone that would listen.
Even to my Dad (who I never talk "fat" with).
I had this idea to mimic the ad with a picture of my back rolls but I was scared.
I am one of those shy folks :)
While hanging out with my 16 year old sister, I told her the PETA story and my idea and she convinced me to go for it.
What do I have to loose?
We found the smallest bikini possible for $1 at a local thrift shop.
We came home and I squeezed myself into it and met her in the backyard.
"I want to stand in a way that shows off my back fat the best," I told her as I posed. "I want to see rolls!"
After a few shots, we had it!
With a little help from a friend, I made my own take on the disgusting PETA billboard.
You can see a larger view here .
I posted it online Sunday night, August 23, 2009.
The response from my Facebook friends alone was amazing :)
Today, I saw that PETA has removed the hurtful billboard.
I know my image had nothing to do with that but hopefully I have helped someone somehow with my $1 bikini and fat rolls :)
Spread this image around if you want to get the word about about PETA's "whale" campaign.
