Parental Guidance RecommendedPotatohead

Let's stop beating around the sweet, juicy, vitamin rich blackberry bush!
Vegetarians try hard not to preach the ethical and moral benefits, but lets face it, they get enough stick from a proportion of the more ignorant carnivores out there, whether they keep a respectable lid on their compassionate beliefs or not!

If you think you have a suitable material for POTATOHEAD, witty, poignant or just plain silly, then contact us and we will most likely publish it here.

VeggieBite ...
The amount of land needed to produce a one-year food supply for a person on a meat-eating diet is 3.25 acres. The amount of land needed to produce a one-year food supply for a pure vegetarian is just 1/6 (0.16) acre.
From: "Diet for A New America" by John Robbins

Here are some thoughts, one liners and tips for both meaties and veggies to ponder over... and some really rubbish jokes to groan at!

A VeggieGlobal subscriber from the South-West of England tells us about an incident at her school. A class mate was asked to go on Work Experience (this is where school pupils are given an opportunity to experience a real work environment for a few days). The teachers asked the pupil what kind of work she was interested in. She said she wanted to work with animals ...
...
so they sent her to work in a butchers. !!!!!!!!

A Health and Fitness website reports that the American Dialect Society gave the term "flexitarian" to describe "meat-eating vegetarians" its top award for most useful word of 2003.
What VeggieGlobal says:
"meat-eating vegetarians" ... Huh?
"Flexitarian" should get top prize for being the most ridiculous contradiction in terms ever!

veggieglobal

Um ... joke.
I'm a vegetarian who only eats potatoes - better known as a Pomme de Terre-rian.

Here's a tip:
If you, as a vegetarian are buying dinner for others at a restaurant - then make it clear that you'll only do so if they don't order meat but a vegetarian dish instead. It sends a message out in a way your guests can't really argue with, because you are paying!
Your own conscience stays clear as well, because by not paying for someone else to eat meat you are not contributing to animal death.

Meaties... stop treating veggies like aliens or "special cases" when it comes to inviting them round for dinner. Instead of making a completely separate starter and main course for them, why don't you all try a vegetarian meal?... that way all the other guests won't be drooling over the veggie's food: "Ooohh that looks lovely... I wish I could try that"! ... (that always happens!). And secondly, it stops the veggie feeling awkward for creating extra cooking for the hosts.

veggieglobal

And ... another corny joke.
What's a vegetarian's favourite raunchy movie?
Nine and a Half Leeks.

veggieglobal

If you are appalled at the thought of wearing furs then why are you wearing that leather jacket?

veggieglobal

Veggies... If you choose your friends only because they are vegetarians - that is short sighted and self-righteous. Meatie's can be compassionate but their conscience "un-ignited" towards the common-sense of vegetarian ethics, so at least give everyone a chance to experience your angle on life. You never know ... it may change their life.

veggieglobal

On the other hand ... Had enough of those kinds of meaty friends who throw flippant comments about your vegetarian diet? "F*****g rabbit food", or "you eat like a mouse"? Simple ... just change your friends, with mentality like that they're not worth the plate they eat their sausage and bacon off.

veggieglobal

Self-righteousness and vegetarianism don't go together, but worst of all there are contrived trendy towny health freaks out there who throw the "veggie" word around with absoloutly no idea what constitutes vegetarian. "Oh yes, we are vegetarian too". Yeah ... in between Salad Niçoise (Tuna) and Poulet à la Tarragon (erm... chicken). (Just as bad as "flexetarian").
