Media Advisory: IFAW Offers Carrot-Not Stick-to Senator Hervieux-Payette in Response to Anti-Vegetarian Comments

GUELPH, CANADA--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2010) - The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW – is extending a dinner invitation to Senator Céline Hervieux-Payette in response to her recent characterizations of vegetarians as violent, carrot-eating extremists who cannot take a joke.

"Yes, vegetarian cuisine is extreme - extremely delicious" said Sheryl Fink, Senior Researcher with the International Fund for Animal Welfare. "I yam extending this invitation as a gesture of peas, even though it was leeked to the press. If it has bean a while since Senator Hervieux-Payette has had a vegetarian meal, she will be a-maized. There is so mushroom for creativity. If she will lettuce have the honour of her presence and turnip, we promise to beet and squash all corny vegetable puns. Or maybe she won't carrot all?"

The invitation assures the Senator that tofu cream pie will not be on the menu.
