Nah not them it's Americans and they're not in a bath they're in a bed, Newstalk said they were in a bath
PETA Protestors Get Passionate in Dublin
By Georgina Brennan
EYEBROWS were raised all over Dublin this week when two Americans stripped off in O’Connell Street, in the middle of Ireland’s busiest thoroughfares, and hopped into bed.
In a public display of passion, two Norfolk, Virginia members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — Ravi Chand, a U.S. Marine wearing only boxer shorts and Bettany Walker a raven-haired beauty decked out in sexy lingerie — lay down in a bed set up on the pavement to prove that vegetarians make better lovers, and to protest meat eating.
According to PETA, the couple, who stripped down on Tuesday and braved the winds and rain did so to make the point that vegetarians are better lovers because they avoid meat and dairy products.
While the couple were embracing passionately, supporters distributed free vegetarian starter kits to startled passers-by, including young children and baffled Gardai (Irish police) who declined to arrest them. The protests was part of PETA’s “Live Love-In Tour,” and the couple also did the same thing in Belfast.
The public display of affection took place by the scene of the 1916 Rising, the General Post Office. The protest later moved to shopping thoroughfare Henry Street. Traffic was stopped for miles as Ireland opened its eyes to a highly unusual protest.
PETA claimed to local reporters that vegans and vegetarians are, on average, fitter and trimmer and have more energy and stamina than people who eat fat-laden meat, dairy products and eggs. Vegans and vegetarians don’t have to turn to chemical potions with countless side effects like Viagra to be up for the task, a PETA representative told the reporters.
PETA is a sometimes controversial organization which has often been accused of adopting hardball and sometimes illegal tactics to spread their message.
However, the group claimed their O’Connell Street and Henry Street protest was a new and gentler way of getting their message across.
“There’s something very sexy about someone who refuses to turn a blind eye to the suffering of animals raised and killed for food. What could be more of a turn-on than snuggling up to someone who’s both passionate and compassionate?” asked PETA Europe Director Dawn Carr.
“Try a veggie burger in the kitchen for a whopper in the bedroom!” she added.
