People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has started taking "bets" on its website over when Kansas U.S. Senator Charles Grassley will die, after the Iowa Republican scolded the Department of Agriculture for advocating a vegetarian diet.

The USDA later retracted the newsletter and said it wasn't properly vetted, but Grassley vented on Twitter that he plans to "eat more meat on Monday to compensate for stupid USDA recommendation."
PETA, on its website, accused Grassley of fighting for Americans' right to be "sick and fat." More HERE
