I have posted about the solipsistic PETA campaigns here
before and so will not repeat myself. I have no idea who Eva Mendes is. I suspect that having no particular talent, she figures that talking about her new puppy in the nude is good publicity. Judging from the Google search I just did, she hit the jackpot (there are already 50 plus stories announcing that she is showing her bare ass for animals. Or is she showing it for publicity?)
