Jimmy's Famous Seafood Doubles Down on PETA Attack
Jimmy's Famous Seafood may not be the hero 2018 deserves. But dammit, it's the hero 2018 needs.
They never expected PETA (see Natalie Portman Compares Animal Treatment to Holocaust for PETA and PETA Thinks the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Should Be Vegan) to launch the Great Crab Wars. But Jimmy's was ready. Both on Twitter, as well as battling billboard vs billboard.
The battle over Baltimore’s beloved steamed crabs boiled over this weekend as a second billboard adorned the city skyline in the back-and-forth between an animal rights group and a seasoned seafood restaurant.
Jimmy’s Famous Seafood hit back at PETA by taking out a billboard promoting steamed crabs in a way that parodied the message the animal rights group posted on a different billboard in Baltimore last month.
The restaurant’s billboard reads: “SteaMEd crabs. Here to stay. Get Famous.” The Twitter account for Jimmy’s posted the photo of the billboard, located to greet motorists entering Baltimore along I-295, with a short phrase: “Our Yard. #SteamThemAll.”
It's okay, Marylanders. Jimmy's is here for you. The crabs will need to be pried from their cold dead hands.
Or mine. Because I do love myself a stuffed crab. Also, crab cakes. Dammit, now I'm hungry.
If you're going to go to war, consider your opposition. Remember that protein fuels the brain. Soy fuels stupidity. Pick your battles wisely. Preferably over a surf and turf platter. Hold the veggies.
