PETA Requests that Pet Shop Boys Rename Itself



I saw this article earlier today in which PETA has requested that the Pet Shop Boys rename itself the Rescue Shelter Boys. I think the Rescue Shelter Lads has a better ring to it, but that's probably just me. According to CNN, PETA reasoned that:
by changing its name, the band could raise awareness at every tour stop of the "cramped, filthy conditions" that breeders keep animals in before selling them to pet stores . . . .
Not surprisingly, PSB turned the request down.

BTW: this live version of "It's a Sin" is fierce! (I promised a coworker I would use the word, "fierce," in a blog post before the week ended, and I succeeded. Ha!)
