Here are some thoughts, one liners
and tips for both meaties and veggies to ponder over... and some
really rubbish jokes to groan at!
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. !!!!!!!!
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:
vegetarians" ... Huh?
"Flexitarian" should get top prize for being the most ridiculous
contradiction in terms ever!
I'm a vegetarian who
only eats potatoes - better known as a Pomme de Terre-rian.
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
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.
... another corny joke.
What's a vegetarian's
favourite raunchy movie?
Nine and a Half Leeks.
you are appalled at the thought of wearing furs then why are you
wearing that leather jacket?
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
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.
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").
