Anybody who's unfortunate enough to come within the firing lines of PETA can garner some sympathy here.
Recently, Majesco got skewered by the folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals with their own blood-soaked parody called Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals.
PETA's version is similar to the Nintendo DS and Wii series Cooking Mama, except theirs tries to gross out the player to the notion of eating meat by focusing on the killing and cleaning of a turkey in preparation for a Thanksgiving dinner.
It parodies the original Mama as a knife-wielding blood curdling murderess.
It's a good thing Majesco seems to have a gracious sense of humor, as their response to PETA's parody has been affable.
The fictional Mama was quoted as saying, "I would never put rat in my Ratatouille. Like any accomplished cook, I create my recipes to appeal to a broad range of tastes and preferences. My only goal is to ensure you leave the table well fed."
Majesco's latest Cooking Mama World Kitchen features over 25 vegetarian-friendly recipes to boot. While it states that Mama is not a vegetarian herself, she "fully supports" the humane treatment of animals.
But this isn't enough to hush the vegan zeal of PETA.
In an open letter, they're asking that Majesco create a vegetarian-only Cooking Mama game. They're going so far as to offer their hand at promoting it.
"Even if you don't take the plunge into the wonderful world of vegetarianism yourself, I still hope that you will consider making a vegetarian-only Cooking Mama game."
We got a hunkering this isn't the last of this heated cook off.
