Super Meat Boy developer Team Meat has started a Twitter throw down with animal rights organization PETA. “How many Peta members does it take to change a lightbulb?” asks Team Meat via Twitter. The answer: “None, Peta can’t change anything,” says Team Meat. Zing!

The delicious drama follows the release of Flash game Super Tofu Boy, a parody of Team Meat’s Super Meat Boy, which was developed by PETA to promote a vegan lifestyle. PETA’s take on the popular indie platformer finds Meat Boy dumped by his love interest, Bandage Girl, for Tofu Boy. Described as having the “best buns in town” with “the kind of stamina that fatty blobs of beef have only heard about in fairy tails,” Tofu Boy is presented as a healthier and more sexually charged alternative to the Super Meat Boy’s beefy protagonist.

You can read more about Super Tofu Boy and play it for free on PETA’s official game site.
