  • So salt the crap of out your salad. Iodized salt of course.
  • Not enough live baby otters in your diet?
  • CSB. I recently finally found lamb bacon in Israel and ordered two kilos. I was so happy, I took a picture of the vacuum-sealed packs when they arrived and posted it to Facebook.

    A friend of mine who is a very strong vegan unfriended me after I posted the photo. He said it was "farked up and disgusting" because it was "a baby sheep butchered and prepared like a pig."

    Oh well. I don't think he'll speak to me again. End CSB.

    Bonus 1: There will be less smug.
    Bonus 2: BACON!

    Not a fan of beef bacon?

    I have many vegan/vegetarian friends, they don't comment on what others eat unless someone decides to specifically ask them for advice (most of them are physicians) on how to improve their diet. That guy sounds like he has issues.

    Glad to hear it worked out for you in the end.

    Couldn't find turkey or beef bacon anywhere here. Only lamb.

    From what I remember, turkey bacon is tough and chewy whereas lamb bacon seems crunchier after I made it.
  • I've never met a smug vegan, but I have met lots and lots of their smug haters, who not-so coincidentally, have never met a vegan outside of South Park jokes.
  • Thanks subby. This is helpful.
  • I've known 6 vegans and all of them were sanctimonious arseholes about it.

    Oh, if everyone were just like me we'd save the planet.  Oh methane.  Oh terrible conductions.  Oh foie gras.  Oh I can't go to lunch there because they don't meet my guidelines.  Oh, I'll just have a side salad with the back of my hand placed firmly against my forehead.  Oh, does this broccoli casserole you made for this work event specifically for me contain dairy?  I can't eat that because cows.

    Fark them all.

    Come to Tel Aviv. At least before the pandemic, vegans would pour red dye in water fountains, throw red paint on statues, and even rent trucks with large, mobile video screens to park in front of restaurants and show horrific videos of animals being made into food while people are eating outside.

    There is even a vegan political party that runs in city races. Last election, someone yelled out to "Vote for the vegans!" as I walked out of the polling place. My reply? I yelled back, "Meat!" with a raised fist. The woman just stared at me in shock.

    Yep.  People just really like to be part of a group, they seek validation for their choices.  Doesn't matter if it's vegan, gluten, whiskey, wine, bacon, fear of clowns, knife lovers, pregnancy, parenting, cars etc.  People will gush online, and sometimes in person about the benefits and tiny details of their chosen lifestyle.

    It's not a great problem in itself, it's just kind of amusing when they mock each other hypocritically because they can't see the same kind of behavior in themselves.

    It moves beyond amusing into annoying when some group decides to be authoritarian gatekeepers and want to decide that their lifestyle should be mandatory for everyone.  Maybe 2% of the population is vegan, and maybe 2% of that vegan population are militant angry vegans. Frankly, it's "old person living in a gated community fearful of the scary vegans" level of humorous for an omnivore to get bent out of shape and whine about a few goofy vegans.  It's dumber than those Ford vs. Chevy clowns yelling at each other.

    /Centrist omnivore here.
    //Militant appropriate portion size guy also.
  • Jeff Beck is a vegetarian so your obnoxiousness is invalid.
  • Bob Down: Not enough live baby otters in your diet?


    If you can't get otter try Fennec foxes, they're almost as good.
  • I dated a vegan for a couple years and tried the lifestyle myself.  After 16 months, I went to donate blood and my iron level was too low to donate.  Did a full load to get the level back up and went back to my original diet, except when dining with GF.  She didn't mind.
  • My wife is vegan.  She does her thing doesn't make a fuss.  It's almost as though the stereotype is less than consistent and people who choose to be sanctimonious douches will be so for any sort of ideology.
  • I like meat, but I'd be mostly ok with vegetarianism. Vegan though? No farking way. Cheese, baby, cheese.
  • Fortunately, gelato and chicken parmesan are vegan.
  • ChubbyTiger: I like meat, but I'd be mostly ok with vegetarianism. Vegan though? No farking way. Cheese, baby, cheese.


    I've been vegetarian for almost 18 years with some bouts of veganism in that duration.  I don't miss bacon, but the farking cheese always gets me.  I try not to buy cheese made with animal rennet.
  • As for the article, part of the difference is probably that all the vegan foods are fortified at this point with B vitamins and stuff (a serving of soy milk in a bowl of cereal has more than 100% DV), and vegans probably eat less salt (because vegans have fewer options for eating out and getting insanely salted meals at restaurants).
  • I need some vitamin U to see me through

    I can vouch for this. I drive an ev and have solar panels and I'm an unbelievable peener about it
  • Vegan? No way. I couldn't even do vegetarian. I like pudding too much.

    Being that Veganism is a form of colonialism, in that it's a bunch of well-to-do white people telling others what they should and shouldn't eat, we can rest assured the entire group is smug.
  • Do I really have to do all the work on Fark today?  Here you go:
