That's a good read.

All respect for those who practice vegetarianism, but getting sufficient protein without meat would be hard. Lots of eggs and dairy, I suppose. Veganism would be impossible...

I saw a bumper sticker that sums it up well!

"I love animals! I try to eat one at each meal."

In the same spirit:
"I (heart) animals. They're delicious!"

The photographer at my wedding was vegan -- we didn't know it when we hired her. I think the only thing she could eat was the celery and carrot sticks, no dip. She did a great job despite the malnutrition. Good thing for her she wasn't around for the wild boar ham at the rehearsal dinner.

I went to a wedding once where the bride was vegan -- since no one could figure out how to make a wedding cake without eggs or dairy, you should've seen the look on her face when she choked down her ritual piece. Looked as if she was biting the heads off chickens -- which of course, in her mind she was.

I guess I don't understand the whole thought process behind this diet. Shoot, don't the veggies "feel pain?"

I got a kick out of the woman praying for the chicken she was about to eat. Did they do that at the Donner Party?

I think there actually was some vague research on "aura's" that showed plants do react when cut or bitten into.

I had a friend who was a very successful vegan until her pregnancy when she got very sick. She finally added fish into her diet and she got healthy again real fast.

John - I know how to make a cake without eggs or dairy. Really good ones too. Maybe I should charge a fee for my cakes to Vegan weddings??? <smile>

Richard-

That reminds me of a story that The Onion (for those of you who are unaware, this is a fake news site) had a long time ago. It was talking about how scientists discovered that when bitten into, vegetables emit an extremely high frequency noise, akin to screaming. Vegans were reported to having to resort to eating their own hair. :lol:

And for those of you unexposed to it, check out http://www.theonion.com and prepare to be amused.

I use to be a vegitarian...in the last 5 years I've started eating fish and chicken (any bird really) again. No "moral" reason that I don't eat other meat, I just never felt good when I did. In fact, I stopped eating chicken originally because I would get bad headaches. Since switching to free range chicken, however, I have had no headaches (hmmmm).

My main thing I tell people is that I don't eat mammals, I'm staying true to my phylum. :biggrin:
