PETA is running out of viable ideas. In yet another absurd turn of events, the animal rights organization wants to harvest — get this — actor George Clooney's sweat to create a new flavor of tofu.
The group obtained one of the actor's sweat-laced gym towels to raise money at a fundraising auction, but then decided it might be better off using the actor's perspiration in a food product. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk penned a proposal to Clooney himself, in which she discussed the invention, to be called CloFu:
The technology actually exists to take your perspiration and make it into George Clooney-flavored tofu (CloFu) . . . we would attract many people who don't try tofu because they worry that it would be bland . . . we hope this idea meets your approval.
The star's response? "As a mammal, I'm offended," he said. I second that. I mean, I love George Clooney as much as the next gal, but the entire concept is disgusting. By George, does PETA really think that consumers are so dumbstruck by stars that they would eat something like CloFu? Are you as horrified by the letter as I am?
