CloFu- tofu that tastes like George Clooney smells

One good thing about tofu is that you can make it taste like just about anything. This week, a new tofu flavor has been proposed: tofu that tastes (and smells) like George Clooney's perspiration. You read that right.

The concept has actually been presented to George Clooney who is amused by the idea but does not plan to move ahead with the concept of CloFu.

The idea (which was inspired by the scent of one of George's towels) was presented by Ingrid Newkirk, president of PETA who suggested that the product might encourage people to stay away from eating animals by eating more tofu (?). She is quoted as saying, "What would make tofu more attractive to people?... I can see people having parties to try CloFu."

She likens the idea of sweaty-Cloony-flavoring to making artificial chicken flavor for gravy. In a statement, Clooney said that as a mammal, he is offended by the idea.

By the way... Recently PETA came up with another equally amusing idea: renaming "fish" to "sea kittens" so that people won't want to eat fish anymore. (no kidding- link here)
