PETA Roasts Cooking Mama with Parody Game

Video games seem to be increasingly showing up on the radar of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

GamePolitics readers will recall that earlier this month PETA gave props to Sega for ditching a Samba de Amigo commercial which featured a trained chimp.

The animal rights group has once again strayed into the video game habitat with Cooking Mama: Mama Kills Animals, an unlikely parody of Majesco’s Cooking Mama: World Kitchen. The new Wii title launches tomorrow. A PETA press release explains why the group is howling mad about the new game:

Majesco’s game is so heavy on dishes that are made from dead animals that the only things missing are the blood and gore…

In the original version, players score points for assembling a meal. That also applies in PETA’s parody, but with this Thanksgiving dinner, players also must go through the motions of plucking the turkey’s feathers, pulling out the bird’s intestines, and cutting off the animal’s head. All the while, a demonic cleaver-wielding Mama takes delight in the agony. When the player beats the game, Mama has a change of heart and replaces her bloodlust with a craving for tofu-turkey.

Does that qualify as a spoiler? In any case, unlockable content in the parody game include vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes as well as hidden camera footage from a turkey slaughterhouse.

PETA spokesman Joel Bartlett dismisses claims that the parody game is making a mountain out of a mole hill:

We’re having a bit of fun at Mama’s expense, but there’s nothing funny about the suffering endured by turkeys and other animals who are killed for food. With all the delicious vegan alternatives available, there’s no need to make the carcass of a tormented bird the centerpiece of your Thanksgiving table.

    Yea, roosters tend to get really nasty sometimes. That’s why they’re always the first to go with our chickens. And I totally know what you mean about watching turkeys and chickens run/roll around after you’ve chopped off their head. We used to get together at my grandparents house just about every year on the day before Thanksgiving just to slaughter a turkey, and we would just let go and let it roll around for a few minutes and laugh as it ran into just about everything. Just one of those simple pleasures that a lot of people don’t get to enjoy.

    See, that’s why you got to start with the legs, and saves the hands for the very last. Hopefully, by then, they’ll already be dead due to the sheer damage to the body. Then we can dump it in a forest or something.

    Have a cat that loves bringing rabbits and squirrels to the house. She leaves them on the porch for (I’m not kidding) the Raven flock that nested in the oak tree next to the house. Crazy kitten even has conversations with the biggest one. (I thought someone spiked my tea when I saw it the first time.)

    Was raised on a farm myself. Main diff was we butchered the hogs ourselves as well and deer,rabbits,squirrels,fish and the occasional turtle. (And the first person says a turtle is cute have never had to remove a "alligator"snapping turtle from an animal’s leg.)

    The difference between vegitarian and vegan is that a vegitarian is a dietary choice. A Vegan has made a moral stand to fight the opression of the meatocracy. One orders salads for lunch, the other pees on your hamburger. One says "No thanks, I’m a vegitarian", the other says "How can you eat that dead chicken corpse. It was ripped from it’s mothers embrace and rasied in a machine for nothing more then to become some heartless bastards meal."

    Basically, one of them gets along fine with everyone, the other cheeses the rest of us off.

    Jesus Christ! Fucking PETA. Remember that one time when they wanted to have that polar bear (I think it was a polar bear) killed because it was raised by people? That’s ethical, but eating meat, oh hell no!

    I say we have PETA fight Greenpeace for what gets eaten. (wakka wakka!)

    Actually, the NRA (or at least certain members) do push views on people. Mid-Michigan had a scandal the day before the election: NRA members working for several major papers (all conservative papers, but they’d all endorsed Obama) replaced the bags used for delivery papers with NRA "Defeat Obama" bags, and a NRA members working on the delivery routes vandalized houses displaying Obama signs.

    Not at all comparable to things done by PETA members in some of the same neighborhoods, but the NRA has hardly been innocent throughout its history. This wasn’t even the first vandalism in my neighborhood by people distributing NRA-sponsored campaign material, it’s happened every major election since 1996.

    I once had to clean up a baby rabbit our old cat got. Half was by the front door, half was by the back door.

    Then there was that one bird that was still in full flying condition when the cat dropped it. Poor kitty cat was all "Hey, where’d it go?" when the bird flew off in the direction of the end of the block, as fast as it could.

    You know, wouldn’t Cabella’s "Big Game Hunter" series make a much better target, as it directly involves the killing of animals? Not to mention that while the games are horribly bad, they have a great deal of market penetration due to machines at various chains of sports bars (like, for example, my local Buffalo Wild Wings).

    Then again, those places serve meat, so they’re already on PETA’s shit list…

    Never had them eating each other, but the rooster do get violent. The dominant rooster rips the tail feathers off the other roosters and the roosters bite the necks of females when mating. So there can be a lot of blood in the chicken pen.

    If I’m not mistaken I think PETA’s biggest tactic to get people to quit eating meat is by making them see what animals go through when they are reduced to a meaty carcass. In that case their biggest problem shouldn’t be that we eat meat, but it’s where we get our meat from. PETA always loses track of that, and it’s what annoys me the most about it. Remember what PETA stands for? It’s about treating animals in an ethical way, and no way does it imply that it should stop eating meat altogether.

    I’m not against the systematic raising and killing of animals for food but I do wish that we’d put more finesse and care into it. The biggest problem seems to be with cattle- they’re not as genetically manipulated as chickens to grow to a certain size so they encounter more problems when taking them into the assembly line for slaughter. 

    There are big technology advances in almost all industries, yet when it comes to meat-preparing it all looks like crude WWII tech. Some cows don’t get gassed well enough, and people just contine to chop their necks while they’re still breathing. PETA could do more by educating the people behind the source of the problem than the consumers where meat reaches the "final product" state and it’s too late to do anything about the animal.

    A few comments on here seem VERY anti-vegetarian/vegan. To those,  I say they can shove their opinion up their arses sideways along with a handful of rusty nails and shattered bone shards. I don’t always agree with PETA, from what I have seen of them (in the UK), no doubt the majority of their escapades elude me, but as a practicing veggie I don’t insist others refrain from eating meat, so where the f*ck do you get off saying vegetarianism isn’t a good lfestyle choice?

    I’ve never seen a PETA member say they want to ban meat, fur yes, animal testing, yes but not meat. I think PETA despite it’s ravid enthusiasm realizes that trying to ban meat will make you hated by everyone who enjoys meat (which is mostly everyone), so it attacks the meat industry instead.

    if cooking mama had the blood and gore i’d probably be playing it!

    PETA fails again! i’m a human and need my meat, if i didn’t then i wouldn’t have sharp teeth i’d have flat ones.

    don’t care bout the pills behind it, or the yellow color of the skin if i was a veggy, shooting them critters and eaten up is fine by me and rather tasty.

    i’m all for the humane treatement of animals, but not the PETA concept of it.

    i mean cripes, first its peta complains about the unhumane treatement and land clearing for the cattle ranches, then its the EPA or WWF complaining about the land clearing for crops and lost homes for animals if we don’t eat the cattle..

    we’d need to seriously expand our fields to fill the order if theres no meat on the table…

    Yes, I do think that some of the shit turkey farmers do to their fowl isn’t really "humane", but I think that if they are going to kill the bird, they should just take it by the neck and chop its head off in one hack. That’s it, that’s all that’s needed.

    You can be a carnivore if you want (although I’m not too sure about an all-meat diet being too friendly on your colon) or an herbivore if you want (although it may lead to different colonic problems), but me? I’m an omnivore. Not carnivore, not herbivore; omnivore. I will eat all kinds of food that is put in front of me, whether it be meat, veggie, or something completely unrecognizable. If it’s tasty, it’s goin’ in mah belly! I am an omnivore, and I will not excuse myself for it!

    And how dare you bastardize Cooking Mama like that! She is a sweet and lovable person who only wants to make delicious foods for people to enjoy. But you arseholes first turn her into a deranged slaughterer, then into some fucked-up, tofu-molding flower child. How dare you manipulate and destroy her innocence to fit your understandable-yet-extremist views!

    If you ever get a chance, watch David Attenborough’s documentary on chimps. When they catch a monkey, they don’t kill it ‘humanely’, they literally rip it’s limbs from its body whilst it is still alive. Most of the Cat family is just as bad, I’ve cleared up a good few decapitated frogs from the kitchen over the last few days thanks to the cats.

    I might be able to take PETA more seriously if they released serious press releases. They need to try to be serious and academic instead of relying on fear-mongering and hype to get their message across.

I hate to tell PETA this, but their reputation as a bunch of nuts doesn’t help them get their point across.

    Some of my fondest memories growing up were the family gatherings around plucking and gutting chickens. We would buy dozens of chickens, raise them and slaughter them. We would gather in an assembly line and get to work. It is always funny when one gets away after having its neck cut. Seeing a headless chicken running around the yard is the funniest thing anyone could ever see.

    Other great memories were when the butcher would come to collect the cows and pigs we raised for slaughter. He would come. Shoot them between the eyes, string them up from their hind legs, slit their necks and drain the blood. Then he would peel back the skin to remove it. Next he split the belly and dumped the internal organs into a bucket. Finally he would get a big motoried saw and cut the beast down the backbone splitting it in two. He would then wrap it in plastic and cart it off to be chopped into the wonderful cuts we know and love.

    Ah, such fond memories.

    PETA can go to hell.  Do they really think that people who eat meat don’t know where it comes from?  Do they think that I haven’t gutted an animal or had to wash blood off the carcass in order to clean it before cooking and eating it?  Do they think it makes a damn bit of difference?  Vegan alternatives taste like crap and have very little similarity in nutrition.  The amount of supplements my flatmate and her boyfriend have to take to top up on what vegetables, pulses and pasta don’t provide is frankly incredible.

    Sorry but if a group like this goes after people for just eating meat, then they can fuck right off.  If they want to talk about animal WELFARE and highlight issues there, that’s another matter, but playing the "aww you’re eating cute little fuzzy animals  *sniff*" card gets nothing but contempt from me.

    It’s kind of wierd because I have more respect for someone who kills their own Christmas Turkey than buys it from the supermarket, the least people in the world that PETA have to worry about are those that kill their own food, the real damage is done by the commercialisation of the Meat industry, not in its existence.

    Animals do not deserve the rights of humans because animals do not have the capabilities and cognitive faculties of humans. Inhumane torture of a create like a turkey, which barely knows which orifice to eat with doesn’t really amount to anything shocking when you cosinder that the way animals kill other animals can be incredibly vicious and callous. Applyng ethics to something that ranks lower on the sentience ladder is a foolish and wasteful use of time and effort.

    Animals raised and killed for food have no federal legal protection from the abuses that they suffer, including neglect, mutilations, chronic pain, and crippling, but we are at the top of the food chain for a reason.  So PETA can get over it.

    Please consider adding an animal based recipe Cooking Mama game to your wonderful series, and gamers around the world will love you for it.

    PETA is a terrorist group. They aren’t shy against using fears and threats to get their way and brainwash people. They tend to be somewhat selective on who they attack. They won’t go attacking bikers for wearing leather, out of fear of being attacked themselves, but they’ll attack women for wearing tight leather or some fur, even if it just looks the part and isn’t.

    I’ve already had my say against peta long ago, and it is a silly cause. Vegans aren’t necessarily bad, but some are preachy, but many people from any particular group can get preachy about anything. I just think Vegan diets are fairly insane from the amount of supplements you have to take, in comparison to a vegetarian diet. Then, you have those scary stories of vegans that misfed their children by forcing vegan diets on them creating children that weigh as much as 60 lbs. @ 6 feet tall. The result sounds worse than the balleria children that underwent strict diets to look thin for recitals.

    Peta are hypocrites as Pen & Teller point out, just remember that hypocrisy is a sign that those people will do anything for their selfish benefit, they don’t care about others involved in something.

    This isn’t the first time they’ve used this kind of phrase. They’re infamous for releasing a number of pamphlets labeled "You Mommy/Daddy Kills Animals, with graphic covers depicting a man or woman gutting a fish or rabbit. The entire point was to paint PARENTS as the bad guys.

    This is another example of retardedness that PETA has employed. Nothing says "we’re wasting a buttload of cash by dumping it towards campaigns where he demonize certain people and as an effect, turn children against their parents". They don’t like Nintendo, and it shows- they have "talented" "game designers" make "original" "games" that are remarkably similar (Read: blantantly obvious rip-offs) of Super Mario, to demonize KFC.

    You guys realize clubbing the baby seals is illegal, right?  Legislation in Canada prevents the hunters (most of whom are earning a third of the $15,000-per-year income in the one hunt) from clubbing anything but the grown seals with the relatively less glossy grey coats.  But that doesn’t look good on an alarmist PETA poster, now does it?

    I’ve hated PETA since they started throwing paint on people who own fur, all the while they kill about 1800 dogs a year.  However, I’m glad to see Penn and Teller debunk their bullshit too.

    Really, I like Penn and Teller a lot.  They’re a credit to magicians everywhere, just like Harry Houdini.

    I played through the game…and I have to say that making the real turkey was a lot more fun than the tofu thing. Plus the turkey turned out really disgusting, so I think the real reason PETA hates having turkey for Thanksgiving is that they can’t make a proper one.

    On a side note, I wonder what they’re going to do about the dogs in CoD5.

    I just watched that episode of Penn and Tellers Bullshit, and I have a question.

    That guy who goes to universities and shows students how to make incendiary devices.  His arguement is that destruction of property and violence are acceptable tactics if you believe strongly enough against the "amorality" of certain types of behavior (basically, terrorism is ok if it’s for a "good cause").  So, if I find his indocrination of our vapid youth to be obscene, I’m perfectly in the right to firebomb his home while he’s out getting groceries?

    Why I like Edamame. Barely processed and a nice snack. But I’m NOT eating the abomination called "Tofurkey". That stuff is just nasty.

    True, I was referring to intensive, industrialised farming through, not all farming.

    Also it makes a big difference on the consumer end, freerange and well farmed animals make better, more nutritious meat. I’m all for giving animals a nice happy life before they get the chop and I get the chops.

    Actually, responsible grazing is beneficial to grasslands; you just have to have a responsible rancher who is willing to take the time to rotate grazing plots so the grasses have time to regrow. Pigs and chickens can also be raised without any harmful effects on the environment if you know how to properly recycle the waste and don’t leave them in any one spot for too long. The problem is that industrialized animal raising is an irresponisble joke that people follow because it’s easier than responsible farming and herding practices.

    Take a look at Community Supported Agricultures; they grow and raise plenty of plants and animals in rather small plots without having any sort of harmful effect on the environment. Plus, the animals are raising very humanely and are really tasty.

    There are also studies that are showing that eating too much soy can block the absorbtion of vital nutrients. The chemicals that cause the blocking also tend to get more concentrated the more the soy is processed.

    What’s left? greenpeace!? ahahahaha. Yeah, fact is, most enviromentalist groups are plain violent. Greenpeace? How about attacking ships full of people? (sorry, I guess I’m some kind of animal-hating douchebag, but I place people above animals) There aren’t a whole lot more prominent groups, because most people see through ‘animal rights’ bullshit and they can only become popular by doing stupid publicity stunts and making public douches of themselves

    There isn’t anything on the plight of immagrent workers that are being exploited in the raising of their vegatables? Why are we more concerned with individual turkeys then with human beings?

    I tried tofu burgers, they were so nasty that I threw the rest of them away, and I’m the type of person that HATES to throw away food. My wife was rasied by a mother who was on a healthfood kick. However, even she eats meat (although not steak like I would consider it, she like it thin enough to read a newspaper at 20 paces).

    In short, a vegan lifestyle isn’t for everyone, so anyone who tryes to shove it down my throat is up for a fight.

    Well I, for one, will be protesting the upcoming "battle Radish" because of the unethical treatment Iron Chef uses in the care of their vegetables. I’ll be there in the front line with signs singing

    I couldnt make this up if I tried…

    (Apparently from the Arrogant Worms)

    Listen up brothers and sisters,
    come hear my desperate tale.
    I speak of our friends of nature,
    trapped in the dirt like a jail.

    Vegetables live in oppression,
    served on our tables each night.
    This killing of veggies is madness,
    I say we take up the fight.

    Salads are only for murderers,
    coleslaw’s a fascist regime.
    Don’t think that they don’t have feelings,
    just cause a radish can’t scream.

    I’ve heard the screams of the vegetables (scream, scream, scream)
    Watching their skins being peeled (having their insides revealed)
    Grated and steamed with no mercy (burning off calories)
    How do you think that feels (bet it hurts really bad)
    Carrot juice constitutes murder (and that’s a real crime)
    Greenhouses prisons for slaves (let my vegetables go)
    It’s time to stop all this gardening (it’s dirty as hell)
    Let’s call a spade a spade (is a spade is a spade is a spade)

    If your a random PETA 2 person reading this website from the link I posted on the PETA 2 website then hey.

    Its not that I’m against your position but I"m sorry that so called "parody" was full of lies.  There is a turkey farm near me and the turkey’s aren’t drugged so they can’t move.  They had the turkeys on tv.  The turkeys were happily pecking at the camera.

    Between this blatent copyright infringment that you don’t deny since you put "Unauthorized" right on the game name and throwing flour in someone face without admitting its assault its kind of hard for me to want to go vegeterian.

    Also with all the stupid stunts you pull its not hard to see that alot of people have low love levels towards PETA.

    And also thanks for helping me with finding an alternative to cow milk since I’m allergic and what not.  xD

    And Zevo FTW!! Remember Battle Octopus? I’m surprised PETA didn’t have a collective heart attack. (Considering the Octopi were fully capable of slapping both Chefs) Maybe it’s only LAND animals they want to protect.

    Jesus F’ing Christ! Why doesnt PETA protest Iron Chief while they’re at it? Oh wait, that’s because the chairman and alton brown would kick the shiznit out of them. I can see it now. The chairman going all jackie chan while alton brown picks up a skillet and explains how it’s a good multitasker while bashing their brains in.

    If this is their game then why not protest a culinary school? This is… beyond retarded.

    What really amuses me about PETA is that they think they have some well kept secret that animals have to die for us to eat meat.  We get it PETA, we don’t care.

    Then rotated every five minutes and a nice honey glaze applied to them.

    I will feed them to some hungry bears and racoons, both omnivores, and see if they prefer meat over some berries also placed close by.  If they go for the berries, then a proper funeral will be had. If they go for the bodies, then PETA is obviously composed of witches.

    I think that is how that test works anyways……..

    The mouse controls were a tad unresponcive at times, but yeah, it was great fun. The blod effects were really, really fantastic. I really liked how the eggs squirt blood when you crack them open, it was a nice touch.

    If somebody released it as a patch on the wii, I would buy it in an instant. Okay, steal, ’cause buying would make the PETA think I was paying because I care about the turkey, as opposed to wanting to see it carved up in a mortal kombat-esq volley of gore.

    No they should be convincing omnivores to give up meat not carnivores. After some of the PETA members have pets, sorry ‘companion animals’ that are meat eaters.

    Can you say "WTF"?


    Seriously, Im all for the "not torturing" of animals. I even love animals. But if we were meant to not eat animals, our digestive systems would be Herbivore. Veganism should only be a diet method, not a way of life that defies common sense and science. Untill they start a campain to make Lions and Wolves to eat salad, I wont acknowlage their arguments as logic. And even then, i’ll just call them fair-crazy and not unfair-crazy.

    I’ll be sure to eat an extra turkey in toast to PETA this coming thanksgiving. 😉

    Well, in truth the ‘scream’ can only be picked up with special equipment, and is really just the sound of the sap escaping through the capillaries.

    That said, I’m an omnivore, that doesn’t mean I can choose whether to eat meat, regardless of what certain people try to tell you, it means that my system is designed to run best on a mixture of meat and vegetables. Omitting either entirely will mean a defecit in nutrients and health.

    To be fair intensive cattle farming is pretty destructive for the environment too, and pigs put out a lot of dangerous phsopherous in their waste that they can’t digest which is very bad.

    and replaces her bloodlust with a craving for tofu-turkey


    Not to mention the fact that tofu and soy are horrible for the environment. Destroys bio-diversity. At least beef can sustain itself on grasslands.

    If animals are not tortured while they’re grown to feed me, then I have no qualms with eating meat. So all that means is I watch who I buy my meat from. Turning vegitarians merely due to a worry about how animals are treated is the cheap way out.

    Not that animals don’t matter, but I don’t think eating meat is wrong, I mean I’m doing it right now! As long as you don’t overhunt, I don’t see anything wrong with serving some deliciously meaty meals.
