    PETA strikes again. This time they are going after Mario for wearing the "Tanooki Suit" in the new Mario game for the 3DS. They say it encourages people to wear fur.

    Funny how Mario has been wearing the Tanooki suit for over 20 years, as he first wore it in Super Mario Bros. 3 (1990)...and they are just now complaining about it. I guess they were running out of things to whine about. My hatred of them has gone up another few notches.

    Lets add that the Tanooki is a mythical creature of Japanese lore. Oh. And its a fucking video game. Also, PETA doesn't seem to have a problem with Mario and friends stomping turtles...or wearing a frog suit.

    The turtles just pop back to life after a few minutes, and bite mario in the ass if he's still nearby, so peta probably sees that as no harm/no foul.

    As far as the frog suit goes, peta realizes that nobody is going to sew 400 frog skins together to make a frogskin coat.

    There is nothing wrong with wearing fur IMHO so long as the meat of the animal was used for food or some other purpose.

    PETA should be ignored.

    That's just plain dumb. I don't wear fur or leather, and don't ever plan to, but I wouldn't do something as dumb as this. PETA doesn't know anything about TRUE care for animals. They put thousands of dogs to sleep one year when they couldn't find "safe homes" for them. I'm all for treating animals well, but this is just stupid in every way, shape, and form.

    Yeah... saw this posted on Yahoo too. That's just nuts. Mario's had it since Super Mario Bros 3 in the NES days. Just because it's on the games' box cover!? Heck, even I wear fur at times, regardless of the Tanooki Suit.

    I'm beginning to wonder if PETA's just trolling us all... they can't be this stupid. Hmm, or maybe they are.

    I'm so peeved. They were giving away Tanooki ears and tails at the NY Launch. I was going to go but didn't. People are selling them on eBay for more than 50 bucks a pair!

    PETA is probably the most pathetic activist organization on the planet. What a joke. Nothing they do surprises me anymore.

    Are they serious! As a kid, when I saw Mario in the Tanooki suit, I didn't think "fur", I thought, "Awesome, I can turn into a statue and not get hit by those Koopa statues that shoot out lasers in Mario Bros 3!" I didn't see them protesting Super Mario on the Wii because they had Penguin suits! It promotes the skinning of of poor penguins!! Geez PETA get a grip on reality and please hold on tight!

    It really makes you wonder at what point in their lives did they come to a fork in the road where a sign said "Sanity to the right" and they made a hard left?

    I think they have also acted against the game "Cooking Mama" because Mama is not a vegetarian. They have also protested against Nintendo's Cooking Guide software because it contains recepies using meat. But seriously, where were they in 1990 when he had the racoon/tanooki suit in Super Mario Bros. 3 along with the frog suit. Also for that matter, what about 2009 with New Super Mario Bros Wii and the penguin suit?

    Adding on, where were they in 1991 for Yoshi abuse in Super Mario World! Look at it! When Mario/Luigi are riding on Yoshi, and Yoshi eats something, it looks like they're punching him in the back of the head. See, they beat Yoshi into eating.

    They'll probably pass a kidney stone when Smaug The Dragon gets killed in the upcoming Hobbit movie.
