BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) – Quite the traffic jam in downtown Baton Rouge at lunch time today. The culprit – a demonstration by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

On the corner of Third and Florida, people walking or driving saw a couple, nearly naked, on a mattress. It was a publicity event for PETA. Organizers say they’re trying to get people to cut meat from their diets altogether.

"You'll also jumpstart your health by reducing risk for heart attack, cancer, stroke and diabetes," Kristina Addington, PETA spokesperson, said at the demonstration today.

PETA members held up signs that say “Vegans Make Better Lovers.” And the people on the mattress were occupied for the entire lunch hour.

Maybe, Kristina Addington, it should have been my husband and your friend Robin G. Oh! But everybody knows you let them do this in YOUR apartment on YOUR bed already! Guess she doesn't quite have the looks for that demonstration though.

Next time you should mimic the Beatles' Butcher album cover. That would be more persuasive against eating meat than having sex on a mattress.

There is nothing wrong with sex MCRunge. Relax and enjoy some with a happy willing partner yourself. However, making traffic worse in the ridiculous town wouldn't make me feel warmly toward any organization.

That is absolutely ridiculous! How dare you corrupt our streets?!
We kill animals, you kill moral values! Do you not think of how possible it would have been for a child to see you out there?!
There are other ways to promote the vegan lifestyle, without corrupting moral values! The only thing that anyone saw out there on the street today were you having sex in the middle of the street!
I just lost any kind of respect that I previously had for your organization!
