The first time my grandmother met my now-husband she told him that he was welcome to come round any time and she would cook him meat, when I wouldnt let him eat it. He told her that he's never eaten meat in his life and never wants to but she still can't get over the fact that men must be longing to eat meat when their controlling women aren't around

They can't help it, ladies: no man can withstand the carnivorous imperatives of MANLY MEAT MADNESS. That's just science.

If only someone would invent a vegan chastity built so we could resist these unholy carnivorous impulses.

A Yahoo! headline said something about how awesome some vegetarian food/ingredient is without saying what it is so I checked it out. It was for bee pollen and the article contained this line (quoting Sarma Melngailis):

Quote:
...no, bee pollen is not vegan by definition — but as with honey, many vegans consume it on a regular basis.


uh no, not really.

on the chew today they were talking about a poll by some hack magazine in which people found meat eaters sexier than vegetarians...supposedly vegetarians even found meat eaters sexier. um? they did not say how the poll was conducted.

Unfortunately, yes really. Which is why no one thinks honey isn't vegan. Just ask my two 'vegan' honey-eating co-workers.

Well sure. We all know how difficult it is to convince people to eat dairy...

Bees are probably the smartest animals that Americans use for food, even more so than pigs. Though keep in my mind, my source is Animal Planet's Top Ten Smartest animals. According to them, bees came in 4th and pigs came in 5th. (And for those curious 1st was parrot, 2nd was Chimp, and 3rd was dolphin) Not sure how reliable the source is, but even if the ordering is incorrect, bees are still very intelligent.

When veggie/vegan restaurants are no longer safe from stupid comments

Just had a lovely meal at a veggie Chinese restaurant that was partly ruined by a group of loud, obnoxious omnivores making jokes about all of the faux meats on the menu. I have no idea why they were there as none of them were veggie, or why they ordered fake meats when it was clearly so much of a problem for them. It was so rude though and the lovely owners were within earshot of all their comments. I go to veggie/vegan restaurants because I don't want to hear that kind of shiitake! I want to eat my food without hearing someone brag about how they ordered 18 chicken nuggets at a takeaway last weekend.

I'm pretty sure parrots are smarter than all of us. They are plotting the great dinosaur comeback, I just know it.

They also seem to feel the need to fill other people in on my veganism. Like if a temp person offers me food and I just say "no thanks", they feel the need to fill in "Oh, no, she can't eat that. She's vegan." and then it has to become a whole conversation when really my "no thanks" should have been more than enough.


How do you know someone is vegan? Don't worry, their friend/family member/SO/coworker etc will make sure to tell everyone at the table.

my partner is on a health food kick now. Buying expensive scales (we have one already!) one of those things you wear to count your steps (I have one already!) a blood pressure cuff (they are free at the drugstore!) and many other unnecessary items.

anyways....he bought one of the Nature Boxes subscriptions without telling me. (whole other kind of peeve)

The ONE ITEM in there I wanted to try had milk in it. THE ONE ITEM. Sirracha Cashews. I almost cried. Everything else sucks.

Also Nature's Box sounds like the place where nature poops and then buries it.

I'm sorry for the ridiculous hassle you're enduring, but grateful for this because it made me snort out loud.

So our Whole Foods when it was remodeled recently started carrying a bunch of vegan dessert items, including stuff from Sticky Fingers. I was just perusing today and noticed it is all gone except corwin cookie sandwiches from Sticky fingers. They have a whole shelf of gluten free stuff. Then the rest of the stuff isn't vegan. Really whole foods? really? Not that I shop at Whole foods often but the other grocery store I normally goes to carries a bunch of vegan desserts including Sticky fingers.

Yep, Alexandria store did the same thing. I was so disappointed yesterday that I actually bought one of their sad bakery cookies.

Eww, yeah, that could be bad. They kept it refrigerated and were giving it out afterwards inside the metro centre. My Natur-a was a tetra pack.
