Super Meat Boy

It looks like PETA has taken offense to Super Meat Boy and has created a parody game where Meat Boy is actually the bad guy and Tofu Boy is here to save the day.  How does Team Meat feel about this?  Here is what they said on their twitter account:

How many Peta members does it take to change a lightbulb?…. None, Peta can’t change anything.

PETA probably should have done a little research; they would have found that Meat Boy is not made of animal meat and is actually a boy without skin.  Edmund from Team Meat did admit he had a small part to play in this parody game:

Putting all my cards on the table right now, I actually repeatedly made fake user names in Peta’s forum pushing the game at them in hopes something like this would happen, but gave up realizing that Peta wouldn’t ever put effort into something “meat related” that was so small and unknown, that’s exactly why this parody is so important and eye opening for us.

Peta is 1000 times more well known then Super Meat Boy and the fact that they went out of their way to make a parody like this is beyond flattering and amazingly helpful.

I wonder if Team Meat is going to send Team Tofu a meat-shaped cake and a “Thank You” card for the free advertisement?
