  • PeTA asks Clooney if they can use his sweat to flavour a new brand of tofu

    George Clooney-flavoured tofu, anyone? We thought the story sounded like a total wind-up, but, no, it’s not April Fool’s Day yet and apparently PeTA really has written to Clooney asking if they can use his sweat to flavour a new brand of tofu.

    The result? Clooney-flavoured tofu!

    ‘Your fans would swoon at the idea of eating CloFu, but what interests us most is we would attract many people who don’t try tofu because they worry that it would be bland or that they wouldn’t know how to cook it,’ PeTA president Ingrid Newkirk wrote to the actor.

    Erm, ok, over to George.

    ‘As a mammal, I am offended,’ he wrote back.
