We now know how Paul McCartney came to be a vegetarian.
Those who thought there was something fishy about the former Beatle’s commitment to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have been proven right.
McCartney is now part of the celebrity team (along with Pamela Anderson, Casey Affleck, Alicia Silverstone, Forest Whitaker and others) that PETA is using to advance its causes.
A new PETA poster that is promoting vegetarianism features the famed bass player from Liverpool and reads as follows: “Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, ‘I am killing him – all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ Something inside me clicked.”
Paul probably wishes something inside him had clicked before he took Heather Mills as his bride.
