Milk free Manning warns Peta over passing off

Comedian Bernard Manning has failed to see the funny side of a poster campaign run by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) which uses a picture of a cigar puffing Manning alongside the caption "(Lactose) Intolerant? The white stuff ain't the right stuff"

Peta is campaigning against all those (evil) health hazards it claims are associated with dairy products. According to the Manchester Evening News Manning doesn't even drink milk and had not given his permission to use his picture.

Peta says it doesn't see anything wrong with its campaign. It remains to be seen if Manning will bother to sue or just let Peta off with its passing off.
