When I was in second grade, we learned a song. I can still remember it. "Turkey trot, trot, trot / Across the lot, lot, lot / Feeling fine, fine, fine / Until Thanksgiving time" and then we sang "gobble gobble with a wobble" or something ridiculous. 15 years later, it still pops into my head.

Chicki - That raccoon story is horrible and I am sorry you work with such a crasshole! The part about the car tailpipe was so shocking to me, I can't imagine.

Lavawitch - How is it that SB with their custom made soy milk - obviously made especially for coffee drinks - has chunks in the soymilk as a matter of course?? That is crazy to me. You would think that SB would have the perfect soymilk for coffee! They are the biggest coffee chain out there after all! I would not drink a 6.00 latte with chunks in it and I don't blame you for complaining.

I have a hard time believing that animal control would actually tell people to put a raccoon in a bag and stick it up to a tailpipe! Not only is that awfully cruel (I have a cousin who used to be an AC officer and while it doesn't extend to being vegetarian or anything I can't imagine her advocating animal cruelty like that!), it's also STUPID. Raccoons can be vicious wild animals and could really scratch somebody up trying to get away! We grew up near forest preserves and I was definitely trained from an early age not to interfere with them.

If chunks in soymilk are a routine thing, it seems like pouring it through a cheapo strainer could fix that easily.

I don't know if this is so much a vegan pet peeve as it is a "lactose intolerance upped by 50 since I haven't had milk in half a year". . . pet peeve. But I was Jonesing for a cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks, so I splurged and bought one. To avoid having to emphasize "no whip" and "no sprinkles" over and over again, I ordered a soy latte with cinnamon dolce syrup. Sounds foolproof, right?

1) Suspicious element 1: The barista asked me if I wanted the cinnamon sprinkles. . . Even though I carefully worded that I wasn't doing the standard latte.
2) Suspicious element 2: The result was frothy. REALLY frothy. Not steamed soy milk froth, or even whole milk froth, but melting whipped cream froth.

I was running late to work and pretty confident in my wording, so I bit the bullet. Nope. Nope. NOPE. I've had the MOST painful gas all day, to the point where I thought an old bladder infection was ER-worthy. Then the condition. . . audibly introduced itself, and I understood. Wow. From gas. GAS!

HOW did I ever consume dairy pregan?!

I learned so many thanksgiving songs in school that involved turkeys getting killed (or native american stereotypes). I remember one song about a "big fat turkey on Grampa's farm" that ended with "You should hear him gobble at the girls and boys/ He thinks he's singing when he makes that noise/ He'll sing his song another way/ Upon Thanksgiving Day." Ugh. On the other end, there was song about a turkey named Albuquerque who was safe on thanksgiving because the family ate egg foo young instead of turkey. Now that I'm thinking of it, it was really weird to sing that one along with all the songs that celebrated turkey dinners.

A couple of my coworkers told me that the city or animal control in their city encouraged them to kill raccoons and possums.

That....does not sound legit. I think I was getting real life trolled at work.

I was thinking the same thing! That coworker has gotta be full of shiitake.
I love raccoons, but yes, as cute as they are they can be quite vicious when threatened. I grew up in the boondocks and raccoons were frequent visitors to our house. One time a family of them moved in to my dad's toolshed; we found out because he walked in there to get something and came running out because one of them (maybe the momma) reared up and hissed at him. We called animal control and they came over decked out in safety gear and gloves, with this snare-lookin' thing on a long stick, and removed them from our property.

It sucks that a vegan blogger can't post a recipe for something including tofu without getting comments like "Soy is more sinister than hemlock."

And how are there so many MDs who are spreading crazy nutritional information and pretending it is science? Dr. Blaylock, I am looking at you.

UGH. This one combines a vegan pet peeve with FB awkwardness, in a boring and predictable oldie but baddie that just pushed my buttons this morning. A friend's BF (who is kind of a douche anyway) put this hugely masturbatory post on her FB wall about the banana, walnut, and - what else? - BACON pancakes he's making, to which she responded with a "wink" emoticon and the sort of coy, quasi-sexual rhetoric that typically accompanies this sort of thing. what the fizzle? Why do you need to share this with 500 people? Just go upstairs and have sex with your bacon, already. I get so tired of the wankfest surrounding bacon. I just feel like saying that it's not manna from heaven, dipshit - it's the greasy, nitrate-filled, artery-clogging smoked flesh of a tortured, dead animal that studies show is as smart as the dog you love so much. And the constant wittering about how much you lurrrrve it doesn't make you seem cool, edgy, or interesting; it just makes me deduct more IQ points and hit "hide" when I see your posts. But I resisted and brought it here, and to my vegan-safe FB page, instead; so thanks for providing a space to vent my Sunday morning bacon-induced rage, PPK!

Yes, exactly! If these people had to see the pain and terror that results in the bacon they supposedly love so much, I wonder how they would feel then. I mean people couldn't just go on about loving bacon anymore, right? They must divorce themselves from the reality. I can't, and I don't want to.

I'm starting to think non-ppk vegans are crazy. If I wanted to be vegan and ran into them first, I don't think I would've gone vegan.

I think a more accurate statement is that a hella lot of people in general are crazy.

Maybe but between the "people who vaccinate are stupid", "legumes, gluten and soy will kill you", "cooked food will kill you", "any food in a package isn't vegan", etc, I'd rather side with omnivores.

Just experienced one of the vegan pet peeve classics: the well-meaning omnivore who just can't imagine how vegans can survive. My Korean teacher—whom I like very much—said something about getting all of her students together some time in December. (She gives private, individual lessons to me and a bunch of other people.) "But you can't eat anything, so you'll have to bring your own food!" She said this smiling and laughing, as though saying, "You're some weird species that survives by mysterious means I can't comprehend." And then she said her husband had been wondering how vegans can possibly live like that, with no enjoyment of life. "With no cheese, no eggs!" I know I'm an ascetic freak, but... Are there actually people out there who think a life without, say, scrambled eggs isn't a life worth living? Am I Doc Savage, or are omnis a bunch of babies, in perpetual thrall to their every appetite?

You should have told her that 24/7 misery, self-denial, and pleasure-hating masochism are key tenets of veganism; our hellish, egg-and-cheese-free parody of an existence includes sleeping on beds of nails and wearing (synthetic) hairshirts under our clothes.

Is this a serious question, or are you being arch?

These things are in no way mutually exclusive! 1. It is a truth continually manifested that an enormous percentage of omnivores are indeed "a bunch of babies, in perpetual thrall to their every appetite." 2. henceforth I will think of and picture you as Doc Savage.

For real, people need to shut up about bacon. I was all about bacon before I was a vegetarian--to the degree that my family made fun of me for it-- and even I didn't think it was that great. Come on.

Yeah sadly, I don't think I can take that FB group anymore. And yesterday was "fat people just need to stop being lazy and stop eating fast food".

What product is it? Can you post a photo? If they've marked something as vegan and it's not, then you should tell them so they can correct it.

I can't deal with vegan body building and exercise enthusiasts. I mean, that's great that they are vegan and found hobbies that they like, but I don't see why they have to dominate all of our Austin online vegan groups with pictures of themselves flexing and talking about how pathetic people are that aren't gym rats.

I have other interests too that don't have shiitake to do with veganism and I don't bring them up constantly at all opotunities in groups for sharing vegan information (well except the ppk which is different) . I mean, I wouldn't post pictures of myself at a music fest #vegan #dancing #atxvegan because one has nothing to do with the other. Just cause I'm a vegan dancing doesn't mean it's vegan dancing!!!!! I wouldn't make a facebook post about having a baby, or building a rocket, or cutting the grass, or watching 10 hours of Star Trek with a hashtag vegan either because IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH VEGANISM.
