PETA eyeing Clooney sweat-flavored tofu

U.S. actor George Clooney says he is not a fan of the idea of his sweat being the star of a new People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tofu item.

While PETA head Ingrid Newkirk appears so intrigued by the concept of creating a tofu flavor based on Clooney's perspiration she wrote him a letter, he is less than thrilled, the New York Daily News reported Friday.

As a mammal, I'm offended, Clooney responded to the unusual food proposal.

PETA officials obtained a sample of the actor's sweat from a source who apparently found one of his used towels at a Washington gym.

Newkirk said if her organization is able to convert Clooney's odor into taste form, a tofu flavored with the pseudo-Clooney sweat could prove to be delicious, the Daily News said.

We believe CloFu would be delicious served by itself or over rice with a light soy sauce and sauteed collards, in a casserole with melted vegan cheese and olives, Newkirk said.
