Nobody is safe from PETA

Nobody. Not even the Humane Society:
The ``No Animals Were Harmed'' disclaimer at the end of the movie has been part of the popular vernacular since 1989, when it first showed up in Paul Newman's ``Fat Man and Little Boy.'' It's even trademarked.

But animal-rights activists say the official-sounding phrase is nothing more than a hollow slogan when it comes to the great ape. Some are accusing the Denver-based American Humane Association, which grants the disclaimer to filmmakers, of failing to protect our closest animal-kingdom relative.

PETA must be running out of new enemies. The Humane Society takes the disclaimer so seriously that it denied it to "The 40 Year Old Virgin" because a fish died.
