PETA's latest Seattle stunt: Lettuce bikinis

They are certainly no Jolly Green Giants. PETA's "Lettuce Ladies" appeared in downtown Seattle Thursday wearing nothing but lettuce bikinis.

The two models handed out soy jerky in front of the electric car charging station at the intersection of Third and Seneca. Their purpose? To convince passers by to give veganism a shot.

"In a time of rising concern for the environment, we're going the extra mile to help eco-conscious motorists realize that going green begins with what's on your plate," Lettuce Lady Hayden Hamilton.

PETA's...unusual tactics are nothing new for Seattle residents. In November the organization asked children if they would be willing to eat their dogs (instead of turkey) for Thanksgiving. In September, they told parents not to let their kids "become hookers." They were referring, of course, to fishing.
