Not eating meat will not make one unsexy. Or will it?

Be sexy, don't eat meat. Especially not those yummilicious lamb chop. Save the sheep (like how the above babe sportingly embrace the smelly animal. Lucky lamb! Hur hur.)

Want to be sexy? Don't eat meat - that's the message behind a campaign to promote vegetarianism in China, where meat consumption is booming on the back of rapid economic growth.

Animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals unveiled the campaign on Thursday, fronted by sultry Taiwanese actress and singer Barbie Hsu.

Hsu, better known in the Chinese-speaking world as 'Big S', will appear in adverts in fashion magazines and websites in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong within the next few weeks to promote the benefits of giving up meat.

Vegetarianism is not a widely popular concept in China, where until fairly recently many people struggled to feed themselves, and where all sorts of creatures - some of them endangered - are considered food, to the chagrin of environmental groups.

PETA's China campaign follows on other global efforts involving celebrities, such as its annual 'sexiest vegetarian alive' awards, which last year were given to performers Anthony Kiedis and Leona Lewis.

In the China adverts, a smiling Hsu holds a little yellow chick up to her face above the slogan 'vegetarians make chicks happy", though the wording in Chinese literally translates as 'Love her, love vegetarianism'.

From Straits Times, "Be sexy, don't eat meat".
