Being influenced by “strangers” nearly 3000 miles away is such a delicious experience.
The AZ Boyz (as I will now refer to Parley, Richard, and Jeff and their Blogs – see THIS ENTRY) are big fans of STRANGERS WITH CANDY. Amy Sedaris plays the main character, Jerri Blank, a 47 year old high school student. It’s frickin’ hilarious! (eeewwww, i just said “frickin'”)
Anyway, I just so happen to stumble across her wonderful work with PETA! I thought I would share what I found.
As you know, I am a major animal rights advocate and activist (I just started “tabling” with Farm Sanctuary in Grand Central and Penn Station recently! YAY! more on that, later), so it is so inspiring to see celebrities use what little or lot of clout they have to help people begin to develop empathy for non-human animals.
It’s inspiring, yet kind of sad because it’s very surreal to me that I live in a world that just doesn’t default to compassion and empathy when it comes to other living Beings.
