I do that! If you're going to say something super shitty, I'm going to make you own it.

There's one of those "ducks crossing" signs for some reason hung in the maintenance area at work, and one of the guys took the time to put red paint on the ducks' heads to simulate a gunshot wound with blood dripping out of it. How is that cute or funny??

I would love to have some kind of response ready for those annoying jokes, other than the awkward silence which is my go-to. My dad, who's been mostly supportive of my veganism for years (and even dabbles in veganism himself sometimes) still occasionally makes a crack about how "God made animals out of delicious meat" or whatever. He's not serious, he just actually thinks it's a funny joke. My dad may be a hopeless case but how do I shut down people who think they're being funny without being a jerkwad? I'd love to be able to handle those situations more gracefully...


My standard response to this is, "god made humans out of meat... longpig, mmmmmm... the other white meat". Tends to creep people out a little bit.

People have been curing carbon monoxide poisoning with avocados for thousands of years. There must be something to it.

I wish people could just tell me what they want me to do about my veganness. Like I get it, I can't eat at a lot of restaurants. It's Louisiana, there's a seafood restaurant at every corner and fork, they're probably all delicious - if you eat seafood. So when it's someone's birthday and they want to eat at Fancy 5 Menu Item Seafood Grill and there's literally nothing on the menu I can eat, do they want me to just not go? I'll do it. Do they want me to go and get the plain side salad and then everyone looks at me awkwardly when they get their huge delicious entrees and I just have my lettuce? I'll do it. Just tell me what you want, because it feels lose-lose from here.

Well I eat a good amount of avocados and I've never gotten carbon monoxide poisoning so there you have it. PROOF

You already know what they want you to do: stop being vegan and inconveniencing them.

Here's what you do. Find out which fancy-shmancy place you'll be going to. About 20 minute before arriving, order a pizza to be delivered to you. Make sure to leave your name with the hostess, of course, so they'll know which table to deliver the pizza to. Done and done.

So I've posted before about my homesteader friend, who's extremely cool in many ways, but the whole "raising chickens so I can eat them and goats so we can milk them" thing bums me out. When she posts about that stuff on her blog or FB I usually just hit "hide" and move on, although I did leave a sad face in response to one gleefully brutal status (which I'll spare you).

Anyway, today's update read as follows:
Quote:
Gee, thanks, universe. I really wanted to come home from work to launch an all-out search for one of my last two full-grown chickens and find that the fox had her for a late lunch. This means war...
I didn't say anything, but found this particularly irksome because the objection wasn't that the chicken had become a "late lunch," but that "the fox had her." The use of "her" and the misplaced distress - lamenting the loss of her chicken, as opposed to the chicken's loss of her life - really bothered me. Taken along with comments like "I sense a nice new fur hat in your future..." and "I've been meaning to find out how accurate my flintlock is..." (ellipses in the originals; what is with some people and their ellipsis abuse?), the whole thing struck a really unpleasant note. I didn't respond because there would be no point and I'm not in the mood to engage with a bunch of wannabe Paul Bunyans about the cognitive dissonance between naming, feeding, and raising animals, and then getting upset when they're killed and eaten by other animals, when the sole reason you "care" for them is so you can kill and eat them. GAAAH.

Strange intersection of life and work:
editing menus for an Unnamed Upcoming Sports Event:
there are vegan options! Yay!!
Several have chicken in them!! what the fork!!

[work related peeve: my editor/direct client says not our problem. i composed a kind but firm letter to the end client trying to help them get their ideas straight. i hope they get it and fix it. if you are traveling to my country for an Upcoming Sports Event and order food at a VIP event at the actual venue, check the ingredients with your server, and please tell them you are deathly allergic to everything. the one thing this company seems to care about is allergies]

I hate getting asked why I'm vegan while I'm eating with omnis. I know this time it was just because they were curious and it was totally good natured, but dang. I don't know how to say "because I think killing and using animals is wrong" politely as they eat pepperoni pizza.

I'm going to a BBQ next week that's supposed to have around 100 people attending. I've already seen some vegetarian jokes on the event page, along with an image of a small alligator stuffed with bacon on a grill (I had to hide the photo). I'm going to assume nothing will be vegan since so far it seems like MEAT MEAT MEAT is on their mind. I'm going to bring my own food and be that weirdo, hoping no one asks me any questions or makes things awkward. It's hard because 100 people is way too much for me and the fact that it centers around food only makes me feel worse.

I usually smile and say "oh, just all the usual reasons I guess" and then change the subject. Seems to do the trick.

The thing is, if you invite 100 people, 5-10 of them will be vegetarian. It's not like it's a surprise these days.

We're having an event at my work and I'm dreading the conversation about why the veggie dogs won't go in the same crockpot as the meat-dogs. I know that there WILL be a conversation about it. Urrgggh.

You're right. MS, if you feel up to it you could post on the event wall, "I know there have been some vegetarian jokes, but I wanted to know if any other veg*ns are attending so we can each maybe bring some veggie dogs or hummus or something?"

Fundraiser dinners for animal rescue groups that don't include a veg*n option of any kind. Disconnect at its finest.

One of my friends posted a picture on fb of her kid petting a live lobster in their kitchen. The caption was about how cute it was that her kid befriended the lobster, and how she had to wait until kid wasn't looking to throw the lobster in the pot and kill it. I just don't know how you can go from "It's so cute! They're friends!" to "Okay, time to kill one of the friends now."

i hate when you contact a company to see if their product is vegan, it is not but they try to sell you on the non-vegan ingredient like farm-fresh, mountain air, hormone free or whatever.

Well, I know youre too nice to just opt out if its some gross salad only option.

So I'm thinking. Awesome foods --> Tupperware --> Purse --> Restaurant Table --> "what? "looks at everyone --> eat yummy food

I actually straight out refuse to answer these days. I say something like "I love that you are interested in my veganism, but I have a personal policy not to discuss this at the table. Ask me again when we're done eating, ok?" The ones who do ask again are typically genuinely interested. I don't think I'm losing much by not humoring those who just want to joke about it.
