The the delight of PETA members everywhere, Mercedes-Benz has agreed to offer "leather-free" versions of its vehicles. The move was made to pacify the German chapter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which claims thousands of cows are slaughtered each year for leather automobile seats and interiors, and were threatening protests at MB's Stuttgart headquarters. Mercedes say they are prepared to make vehicles without leather on demand (reading between the lines: Nobody will actually buy leather-free luxury Mercedes', but because you're a bunch wackos smearing fake blood on yourselves and lying in the street, you kind of scare us, so we'll appease you), but who actually buys an SL500 without leather? Of course, PETA considers this a huge victory because the skins of four to fifteen cows are needed for each car. Man, doesn't a nice juicy steak sound pretty good right about now?
