Take a bow PETA!  You've won the prize for Most Ridiculous Way To Exploit The Manti Te'o Hoax.  Not only have you found a way to include the Notre Dame star linebacker in your underdog campaign to raise awareness about the evils of chicken wings, you've included a sexual innuendo joke as the icing on this delectable advertising sundae!   The advocacy group plans on erecting (sorry, couldn't resist) this billboard in New Orleans for the Super Bowl to coincide with their campaign to support eating fake chicken wings.  At the very least, perhaps more people will consider eating boneless wings, which in my opinion should be the standard way to go for all wing lovers.  The PETA article about the campaign also features tons of painful football and wing related puns for added pleasure (there I go again)... "Manti Te'o may have been buffaloed by a fake girlfriend, but sometimes "fake" is actually better. That's why PETA created this billboard urging football fans to avoid unnecessary roughness to chickens on Super Bowl Sunday by intentionally grounding real chicken wings and opting for play-action fake fowl instead" Even though this campaign has no chance of succeeding, you have to admire the added spunk from PETA in this case - this Manti Te'o innuendo filled billboard is way more explosive than boring protest after boring protest after boring protest.  Part of me feels sorry for Manti Te'o though.  If being made fun of by PETA after being duped by a catfishing scheme isn't rock bottom, I don't know what is...
