PETA's Special Request

Dunno how we missed this one:

A few weeks ago People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals requested that British dance music act The Pet Shop Boys change their name to "The Rescue Shelter Boys," and with this "help raise awareness about the cruelty involved in the pet trade and encourage your millions of fans to consider giving a home to an abandoned or unwanted animal from an animal shelter."

The Boys respectfully declined.

We wish we had but, no, we didn't make this up.
