Wait, who’s sleazy?

Today’s WaPo story about PETA interns opens up with a description of a recent PETA public event against meat.

This self-assured knowledge is useful when the PETA interns are naked, which happens occasionally, like at a recent Friday demonstration when Kelsey Jaye stands with another “PETA Beauty” in a makeshift shower on Pennsylvania Avenue by the National Archives. They languidly wash each other with cruelty-free soap and ignore heckles from the gathering crowd.

He’s so skeezy. All the men here are so skeezy, snapping pictures with their cellphones, pretending to read the literature given to them by Line Moeller, another PETA intern who is wearing a teeny terry cloth robe. “I’m just . . . interested . . . in what they’re . . . saying,” says the man who wants the water to be cold. He stares slack-jawed at Jaye and her shower mate, who are saying nothing. (Unknown to the men, the Beauties are wearing panties.)

Jaye is used to this. These things happen when you are a PETA intern.

Just so we’re clear: Men, skeezy. Topless women soaping each other in public or wearing revealing clothing inappropriate for public in order to get attention: “These things happen.”

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Further proof that Monica Hesse is The Worst . . . that bit about the men being “skeezy” isn’t even a quote, it’s actually her words describing the seen. I know standards are looser in Style, but this seemed like something written for a casual, personal blog.
