People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has asked PBA to ditch their iconic sailfish mascot in favor of the "Sea Kitten" Due to widespread confusion concerning PETA's logic, The Bacon investigative journalist John Spamino has been looking into the unusual request.
While thoroughly skimming the Palm Beach Post article, Spamino found that the newly created Sea Kitten was "created by PETA."
After casually consulting a lawyer friend about copyright laws, Spamino realized that if PBA honored PETA's request, the largest animal rights organization would hold all rights to PBA's mascot. Basketball jerseys and Sea Kitten Cup flyers would be fundraisers for PETA.
PETA is placing the pressure on PBA in an attempt to coerce researchers at PBA's state-of-the-art rat lab to immediately end their studies into the effects of party drugs.
PETA planned to place Sailfish Jack's role as mascot under scrutiny until the lab's forty lab rats are free to roam the city. The researchers had chosen the number of rodents to celebrate PBA's 40 fabulous years as an institution of higher learning.
Ida Robinson, President of PETA, commented, "Knowledge is inferior to rats."
