The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Aya Sugimoto. She gets the award for the following-

TOKYO (AFP) - Japanese actress Aya Sugimoto has taken off her clothes for sexy movies and photo shoots, but for the first time Wednesday she went naked for animal rights.

Holding a tiny sign reading, "Fur? I'd rather go naked," Sugimoto posed in the buff before dozens of photographers and television cameras in one of the first Japanese campaigns by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

"I stopped wearing fur two years ago after I learned how fur products are being produced," said the actress, who is also a dancer and erotic novelist.

"I want to play a role in the 'No Fur' movement and let more people know of the cruel and grim reality for animals," Sugimoto said. "I don't mind at all -- even if my naked photos are posted all over."

PETA chose Sugimoto, 40, as the first Japanese model of its international anti-fur campaign because of her passion for animal rights, for which she has created a fake-fur fashion brand.

"She is perfect," said Jason Baker, director of the group's Asia-Pacific branch office.

I'm glad to know the US isn't the only country with nutty celebrities who support animal rights. Ms. Sugimoto posing nude is the best example of that since Pamela Anderson's protest against Kentucky Fried Chicken and a bust of its founder, Colonel Sanders.

Posing nude to protest animal furs is a great publicity stunt, but that's about it. For revealing how little she knows, Aya Sugimoto is today's Knucklehead of the Day.

For those who would like to see Ms. Sugimoto's 'body of work', check underneath the fold. NSFW.

Aya.bmp Jason Baker said Aya Sugimoto was perfect. I can't agree, but at age 40 she is certainly very very close.

If you don't know, Ms. Sugimoto is a cat lover.I'm going to avoid making commentary on that.

Seems to me she's exercising her right to speak freely for a cause she cares deeply about. Just because I disagree with someone's positions doesn't make them a knucklehead...sometimes.

Now, if she were a vegan wearing leather shoes, or some other such nonsense as that, that would be a different story.

If the end result of her work in this effort is more pictures of her strutting around naked, showing of that smokin' body, then I give her my full support.

Only a complete idiot has anything to do with PETA i mean lets see some of those PETA antifur activists do that in down toen ancorage in the middle of winter and see them turn so blue they would make a smurf look pale

Faith+1:

PETA cares more for publicity and raising funds than it does for actually helping animals. They are the second largest killer of animals in Virginia. I'd prefer to see people do work for the SPCA or Humane Society instead.

As for disavowing fur as a sign of protest...a mild gesture and nothing more. Considering the animal testing done for makeup and silicon implants I'm not buying into the Pam Anderson's of the world voicing their pro-animal opinions. They are for it as long as it really doesn't impact them.

Aya will clearly take her clothes off for anything that gets her publicity. Even for a cause that she doesn't adhere to.

Humane Society of the United States? They've just endorsed Obama!

It seems as though John McCain's running mate is far, far too barbaric toward wolves, and too shortsighted regarding polar bears.
