Human Vegetables

We’ve voiced our disapproval of PETA ads similar to this one before, but those were for the “Rather go naked than wear fur” campaign. What the hell is this one all about?

Copyranter says this: “I guess it’s what to expect when the model is an overly retouched, inorganic Tomato.” That’s funny, but that doesn’t get to the bottom of what is going through PETA’s minds.

Are they saying that if one becomes a vegetarian they will have a body like this, or are they saying that if one becomes a vegetarian they can sleep with women who have bodies like this? Perhaps they’re saying that vegetables often touch a woman’s breasts and crotch before vegetarians eat them. Regardless, do they they know that almost everything for which this visual could stand is unappetizing and unappealing?

I tried to be a vegetarian one summer when I was 10 or 11. Then one night my parents cooked flank steak and I totally caved. I’m not very strong willed. I also love meat.

Sorry Pam, I’d rather eat meat then be a washed up “celebrity” flitting from marriage to marriage in hopes of finding love to cure my obvious daddy issues.

That and it tastes good.

Sooooo once, in HS, I was a little tipsy at a party. They ran out of rum and coke so I made a vodka and root beer. What? They’re the same colors! Anyhow, I was sitting in the pool, and the waves made me so nauseated. I threw up in the pool. Then over the sea wall a couple of time. The next morning I was all, “what was I thinking, that is a stupid ass idea! Hell, I don’t even LIKE vodka!” That is when I learned just how much being drunk impairs your judgement.

Im really curious about the whole vegan thing. I honestly wouldn’t mind trying it for a month or so. I figure I can’t say too much about it until I have given it a fair shake.

Do vegans ever get that feeling after Thanksgiving when you’re sort of blissfully high because you’ve eaten so much? Is there such thing as comfort vegan food? I really know nothing about it. I know that I love gormet cheese and I don’t think there is such a thing as vegan brei wheels. I can only imagine how inconvenient it’s got to be to be a vegan. Maybe in parts of California (certainly not the part I grew up in though) it is easier.
