Vegetarian on a Stick

Okay, if you’re a vegetarian, that’s just great. It’s healthy, you’re not killing cows and chickens, blah blah blah, I’m so happy for you. But do me a couple of favors.

First, I really don’t care if you eat cows, pigs, distant relatives… or vegetables… it’s your business, not mine.

Second, don’t tell me some tofu substitute tastes ‘just like’ whatever it’s disguised as… no it doesn’t. It might not taste bad, I’ve had some tofu things that didn’t gag me, but it isn’t and never will be bacon, beef, or anything besides tofu, so don’t say it is, it isn’t.

And along that same thought, if you’re so proud of not eating meat, why do you eat things that pretend to taste like meat? That’s like me saying, I’m not going to be a cannibal, but I’d sure like my food to taste like people.

And lastly, just because something says vegetarian doesn’t mean it’s healthy. I was at the mall today and noticed that Hotdog on a Stick sells a Vegi Dog on a Stick as a more expensive alternative. I’m not going to speculate on what the heck is in a ‘vegi dog’, but I suspect it’s just as vile as a regular hot dog, but even if it’s an organic carrot, it’s still dipped in corn batter and deep fried!

Okay, I feel better now, thank you for your attention. Class dismissed.
