Jeffrey Dahmer's home will not become a vegan restaurant

After discovering last week that the childhood home of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was back on the Akron, Ohio, housing market, the folks over at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals floated the idea of converting it into a trendy eatery...

Newkirk described how Dahmer would drug, bind, and slaughter his victims, refrigerating them to eat later, and noted that the horrifying violence he practiced did not end with his death (he was brutally murdered in prison) — billions of animals, she said, are similarly slaughtered for human consumption each year in the US.

“We are always looking for ways to draw attention to the violence inherent in the production of meat, eggs, and milk — which involve processes that would shock all but the most hard-hearted person,” the letter read. “Dahmer's old house gives us a way to evoke sympathy for these victims and to suggest that a life-affirming diet can change everything.”
There's more information at Vice.  Background on Jeffrey Dahmer here.

  1. The joke should of' been "Don't eat the pate'" but since it was to be vegan "Don't eat the Babaganoush, be cause it is Baba Ganoush..."

  2. I'm over PETAs crap. I might be $ympathetic to the cause if they weren't so misogynistic and sensationalistic in practice.

  3. Don't eat the pate!! We really laughed at that one!

  4. I first thought you were talking about Randy Kraft. He and Dahmer seem to have had some things in common. So now my comment is only tangent to your note but I wonder if you've seen this incredible read about Kraft: http://www.orangecoast.com/features/2013/09/23/center-of-the-universe

  5. That headline could almost be out of, oh, I don't know, "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"... certainly captures some kind of absurdity.
