The People for Ethical Treatment of Animals named 9-year-old Perry Martijena of Jersey City the World's Cutest Vegetarian Boy. I am not making this up.

"Clearly Perry's vegan diet provides him with plenty of energy," PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman said in a statement.

"And by skipping unhealthy foods such as meat, eggs and cheese, Perry is playing smart and helping ensure good health for his entire life."

And, apparently, it's making him cute!
