Defensive Omnivore Bingo

21 Mar

Print some of these out next time you get in an argument with someone about eating a vegan diet.  Keep refreshing the page, and get a new bingo card!

Gems include:

“Expresses shock that you “force” your child to eat this way, depriving them of vital cholesterol.”

“Wonders how we’d grow enough food to feed us all if everyone went vegan overnight.”

“Something irrelevant about cavemen.”

“Expresses concern for plant suffering.”

“Speculates about how many salads you eat each day.”

True confessions: for the most part, I don’t like salad!  I actually just subsist on the Kumbaya Motherfucker vapors that follow me everywhere as I coo over baby animals.  I suspect it is due to the massive crummy dinner salad overload that I ate in my younger days while I was very concerned about my weight.

The happiest pig ever!

26 Feb

Reading over Farm Sanctuary’s stories of rescued livestock animals.  There was a video of a visitor and farm worker bottle-feeding three baby calves, but I can’t seem to find it, so please enjoy this bouncy piglet.

If you have some time and are in search of adorable things, reading through Farm Sanctuary’s “Featured Adoption” page is totally worth it.  Also, they just rescued a ton of farm animals who need veterinary care!  So, if you’re looking for a good place to send some advocacy money, there it is.  Plus, cute animals.  Hooray!

“It’s not exactly toxic waste. It’s pig blood. Odds are that a lot of little marine critters are enjoying their bonanza.”

Eeeyew.  Check out the full story here.

While I doubted highly before I read the comments (why do I do this, it’s like punching myself in the face!) that this is going to stop anyone from eating bacon, I’m surprised at the amount of defense the company is getting.

Notably, a Google search for “do fish eat pig blood” turned up exactly jack shit.  Also, the state of Texas and related health agencies categorize all blood as a biohazard (as another very easy Google search determined).

There was going to be an artist’s depiction of fish eating blood, but it turns out my drawing skills don’t translate to drawing on a tablet in Photoshop.

So: Fish don’t eat pig blood.  Pig blood is gross. The end.
