PETA can't get its impotence billboard up in Denver

Is this PETA billboard too sexy for Denver?
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has had a beef with Denver before, most recently when PETA's McCruelty statue planned for the 16th Street Mall was determined to violate Denver sign ordinances.

This time, PETA's billboard of a sexy, sausage-draped model has been snubbed by the city (correction: the billboard companies denied PETA's request.)

"When we heard about the cattle industry annual convention and National Cattlemen's Beef Association trade show, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to reach cattlemen and let everyone know the benefits of a vegan diet," explains PETA's Lauren Stroyeck. So PETA contacted the companies that control most of Denver's billboards to book space during the cattlemen's convention, which is now under way, but USA Outdoor, Lamar Outdoor and CBS Outdoor all turned down the request.

The billboard shows a gingham-bikini-wearing brunette with sausages around her neck, an image no worse than others gracing billboards around town. But it was the message to the side of this photo that set off the prude alarms at local billboard companies.

I think the fact that the billboard company didn't allow the billboard instead of the city not allowing it makes this article completely irrelevant. The best “correction” would be to pull this story.

I'm not for or against PETA and their ads, but they always manage to get more publicity from their promotions that DON"T run than they do from the ones that do! Brilliant!
