Octomom plus PETA: together at last. The animal-rights organization paid five grand to Nadya Suleman to put a sign on her lawn: “Don’t Let Your Dog or Cat Become an Octomom. Always Spay or Neuter.” Of all the positions PETA takes, I’m with them on this issue, but isn’t this a bit insulting to Octo? Equating her with a dog that flops down under the stairs and pops out the pups? Perhaps, but she needs the money: apparently she’s defaulted on a CBP, or “Crippling Balloon Payment,” and owes almost half a million on her house.
She must have thought great wealth would follow from having eight kids at once - and indeed, she did sign a reality show deal for a quarter-mil with a company that also did a series on F-list celeb Danny Bonaduce. But most people would watch her show only if she was attacked by sharks with frickin’ laser beams on their heads, because the only person who wore out their welcome faster was General Zod.
She could make the money by taking up the offer to do an X-rated movie for a million dollars, but she declined. As AP put it:
As an added incentive, the animal rights organization had said Wednesday it would throw in a month's supply of veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs for Suleman and her 14 children, who range in age from 1 to 8.
"No porn. Just Peta. Nadya prefers animals over men," Suleman's lawyer, Jeff Czech, said in an e-mail exchange with The Associated Press.
Mr Czech might want to take another run at that sentence before he mails it out again.
