    Those PETA folks really are nuts...

    they want the spider-infested Mazda's (poisonous spiders to be released, joy oh joy.)

    I don't think that these spiders are even native to the USA, which makes it even more bizarre.

    And in the fine tradition of today's most famous priest, "I will not like PETA."

    According to Wikipedia they are found in the States. But they are more common in Europe. I still think it's ridiculous. I am bit arachnaphobic though.

    I'm a member of PETA, but if a spider crawled out my vent, I would whack that sucker.

    I'm o.k. with the spider releasing, as long as they let them go at PETA headquarters...

    The organization said a member once discovered a mouse living in the glove compartment of her new Jeep and donated both to PETA.
    That would freak me out .

    The spider thing would bother me, if the bite was poisonous....other than that I wouldn't care.

    PETA makes such a spectacle out of itself with idiotic displays, though, that I don't support them much anymore. I used to be a member, but I'd rather support the ASPCA or Humane Society now.

    PETA's filled with a bunch of loonies. I feel bad for the people who are involved there who genuinely want to make a difference....because the only thing they make in that organization is a farce of themselves...

    ASPCA is good. PETA is bonkers. HSUS is PETA in Brooks Brothers suits.
