WASHINGTON -- LivingSocial can't seem to catch a break, but at least some animals might be happy.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals announced on Thursday that they're planning a protest of Friday's scheduled Meat Week Food Truck Face-Off. And they're doing it in a most delicious way.

From the PETA media release:

Two PETA members -- one dressed like a pig and the other like a cow -- will dish out free vegan meatballs smack in the middle of Meat Week's barbecue food truck competition. PETA's point? That underneath all the smoke is the flesh of an abused animal who wanted nothing more than to live and that eating animal flesh makes humans sick and fat.

The protest starts at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, outside LivingSocial's Penn Quarter offices (918 F St. NW).

Meanwhile, Meat Week continues, running through Sunday:
