Vegans

Saturday morning, a relaxing lie in with Radio4
on as I waste the morning.

But today's "Excess Baggage" had a couple
of Tofu munchers bleating on about how difficult
it is to visit some cultures because they don't
cater for vegetarians and vegans:
DON'T ****ING GO THERE THEN!!!


The guy was such a whiny pontificating
prat that I actually had to turn it off.

(He also used the platform to push his
meat is cruel meat eaters are destroying the
planet agenda. )


On here if you want to be annoyed:

Re: Vegans

This is ironic Nev because I find that Vegans and Vegetarians are extremely tasty

Re: Vegans

i dont have a problem with vegies or vegans, it up to them if they want to be ill all their life, but what does anoy me is the preachy attitude some have to it, it almost a religion to them and its their mission to convert everyone else.

as humans we are suposed to eat meat(ok not as much as we do) so im sick of preachy vegies trying to tell us we are evil for eating meat.

and dont get me started on the ones who claim to be vegie then happily eat fish so on that basis would they be happy to eat beef if the cows were wild and dragged into a lake and drowned.

if you dont eat meat as a concious choice, fine thats your choice, but stop trying to tell the rest of us what to do, we have made our choice as well.

i do chuckle at some of the vegie food out available, like vegie sausages, the whole point of a sausage is that its suposed to use up left over meat, do they not see the irony in eating vegie sausages? 'im vegie but i really really want a meat product, so ill eat vegie sausages lol.'

Re: Vegans

Vegans smell bad, my girlfriends mate is one and lets off a bit more than she should and tries to blame her dog all the time.

Anyway about that comment one made about meat eaters destroying the planet agenda, what a load of bowl locks! What about al the rain forests being destroyed to produce soya plantations, forgot about that agenda did they, bleeding hypocrites.

As you may tell I'm not in a good mood today, Clarisa Dickenson-Wright (AKA 1 Fat Lady) wrote in her newspaper article once about a place I used to run, the beef was so good it even managed to turn a vegetarian! Pahh! vegetarians!

Re: Vegans

It's one off those things in life, I have to cater for all types of special diets in the restaurant, you will be amazed how tasty some dishes can be.

If you believe or is following a diet, keep it to your self and leave other people to eat what they want to.

I fell like a nice juicy T-Bone

Exactly! why make veggie food look like meat! Are they trying to fool themselves that its meat, which is really what they want?

Re: Vegans

I aint a veggie, but I do occasionally eat veggie burgers because its something different.
As for Vegans smelling bad, yes I agree.. I used to work with one, she had bad breath and terrible flatulance problems.

Re: Vegans

I have been a vegetarian for the last 20 years, I do believe the meat trade to be cruel and I do believe everyone else should also be vegetarian, however, I try not to preach to others, each to their own.

I do however get very annoyed with those that eat fish, they generally tend to be the most outspoken about it and refuse to accept they are not vegetarian, fecking hypocrites.

Saying that my car does has leather seats and they look great, fecking hypocrite.

Re: Vegans

Hang on....

how can meat eaters be destroying the planet?

They aren't all motorists.


And another thought occurs.....all that flatulence....isn't that causing global warming?



And another, other thought, perhaps even MORE worrying....is Happy Man really a closet vegetarian?


23.57hrs I could murder a bacon butty....

I do take offense to that, but i find it horrific when anyone trys to, uninvited, push their views on me. If i want to know, ill ask, dont try to guilt me with your pathetic logic into following you in your hapless attempt to justify your waste of a life!
