maybe Jonah and Cosmo should beware 

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is demanding that Clay Aiken apologize for comments he made about cats:
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants "American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken to apologize for his anti-cat sentiments expressed in Rolling Stone, and they're holding their next ad campaign over his head until he does. An ad with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog featuring the slogan, "Get Neutered, It Didn't Hurt Clay Aiken" will commence unless Aiken makes amends to cat lovers. Should he do so, the slogan will be changed to "Cut 'em off. They don't taste that great anyway."
What exactly did Clay say? How about:
"I think cats are Satan," Aiken said. "There's nothing worse to me than a house cat. When I was about sixteen, I had a kitten and ran over it. Seeing that cat die, I actually think that its spirit has haunted me. I wasn't afraid of cats before. But now they scare me to death."

"It's a stupid statement," says PETA Vice President Dan Matthews. "We get calls every week from people who throw kittens on barbecues because it's funny. Or people who light cats on fire, or people who drag cats from cars. It's so irresponsible that we wrote him after that interview came out and he never got back to us. So we thought, you know, fair game, let's go for it."
Appearantely PETA Vice President Dan Matthews hasn't heard Triumph's latest cd, where he curses Bob Barker for advocating neutering and where he earns his parental advisory label by saying Cats are... Bianca Jagger's.

PETA... simply and utterly pathetic.
