Super Meat Boy developer blasts PETA for its Super Tofu Boy parody

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.

    And meat has the kind of protein tofu never knew existed, let alone in fairy tales. I find PETA so stupid. Need proof? Case 1: Awhile ago, Peta released 2000 mink into the wild at night. The next morning, 1000 of the mink returned to their cages because it was what they were used to. The other 1000 became roadkill. PETA managed to kill 1000 mink. Case 2: I live in the rural town of Denmark, Wisconsin (lots of farms, lots of cows). A billboard a little ways away (paid for by PETA) said that we shouldn't drink milk because cows are hurt when they are milked. We should drink beer instead. Of course, if they knew anything about cows, they would know cows will line up and wait to get milked, not getting milked is what can cause pain. Beer on the other hand, has managed to kill plenty of people every year in drunk driving cases (another one of Wisconsin's fortes), so that's worth promoting by PETA. Killing humans is OK, doing things that PETA thinks hurts animals (but doesn't) is awful. Not to mention that plants are living things, too. If it is something a human can digest, it was once alive, no matter what it is. PETA kills plants that give us oxygen and life. Just because they can't scream when you yank them or cook them doesn't mean they aren't living.

    You missed out the part where Edmund McMillen actually said that he's honoured that PETA parodied his game, because they're "1000 more times well known than Super Meat Boy".
