PETA Veep or Jerky, Boys?

The take home from today's NYT piece on Farm Sanctuary and other food nannies:
“I think there is a shift in public consciousness,” said Bruce Friedrich, vice president of international grass-roots campaigns for PETA. “When Cameron Diaz learns that pigs are smarter than 3-year-olds and she’s like, ‘Oh my God, I’m eating my niece,’ that has an impact.”
The impact is that what Friedrich said just made my head explode. A mathematical representation of the intellectual heirarchy of the four living beings mentioned in the above excerpt goes something like this: Niece > Pig > Diaz > Friedrich.

No worries, though. Why listen to fools like Friedrich and Moby when you could be eating the only jerky with a PhD?
