VEGANS - Especially Kristen from MA


On Thursday, November 3, 2005 one of my favorite Bloggers, Erin O'Brien (Erin O'Brien) wrote a very comical and entertaining entry regarding 22 pounds of ham and the subsequent meals it provided. I think almost everyone reading that entry had a similar experience at one time or another and thus could relate to it. That's why it was funny. I have always been a meat eater and loved the way Erin spun the tale of the downward spiral of over-indulgence into what was probably a very delicious ham.

But then there was a comment from Kristen from MA that started me thinking.

This is what Kristen from MA said: "i cringed when reading this entry. yes, i'm a vegetarian. adult pigs have the mentality of THREE-YEAR OLD CHILDREN. meat is bad, bad, bad."

As I am inclined to do as the result of my interenal defense mechanisms, I deflected this comment using mean-spirited sarcasm. But deep down, Kristen from MA had me thinking.

I used to enjoy a good ham, a pork chop, some bacon or sausage without even a moments thought...but not since reading Kristen's comment. Kristen, I owe it to you! You really made me think after leaving your comment as well as your follow up response to my mean-spirited retort.

Now everytime I eat pork products, I can't help but think to myself, "I wonder if a three year old child would taste this good?"

Um, I don't think is quite the context for a "tastes just like chicken" allusion.

Also, by my count it's barely after 3 p.m. out there in cactus land. What time does a cushy in-house job cut you lose? (That is, didn't you promise Crall you wouldn't post until you got home from work?)

I got inspired. It is actually 4:00pm here since we do not believe in Daylight Savings Time. Once the old bastards out here get there VCRs to stop blinking, they don't want to have to screw with them again.

Those vegis. people are perv.s imagine comparing pork to children. Also, they are pale & scrawny, like anemic ghosts. Their brains are starved by lack of blood red meat. I think I'll kill one on my cartoon.

Hey, does the herb make everything I say funny?

That really makes me worry. Heck anyways. What do them vegetarian people do in place of oral sex if they don't eat meat. Chocolate coated celery sticks just don't get it for me. And do the guys supposed to slurp on a cocoanut coated canalope slice in place of hair pie? 69 would become a meaningless number. Foreplay would suffer. The whole sexual experience would become routine. And what would gay people do if they couldn't eat each other. I mean really. I don't mean to be so dirty, but this upsets me and it is real life stuff, you know. What the heck do vegetarians feed their pit bull dogs if not chocolate coated kittens?

I hate when veggies say that crap. Am I supposed to care how smart that animal was?

I wonder how many veggies drive a car with leather seats?

I remember watching Politicaly Incorrect with Bill Mahr when it was still on, he was siding with a PETA chick. All while sitting in a big leather chair and wearing leather shoes. I thought that was amusing. Pop stars get on this trip about not eating meat for health reasons and how the animals are treated. I bet the Hummer they drive has leather seats.

I need to go and kill a squirrel.

Did you know that if a piglet keeps squeeling and such that the mother will literally devour it? Maybe it's a survival instinct type of thing, but that's what they do.

So even pigs eat pigs.

My husbands dad use to raise Hogs like in the picture. I think they called them Large Whites. HAHA. The same pigs that were on Charlotte Webb (childrens movie). I dont think I could of ever worked on a farm like Travis did... Raise all those piglets then have to kill them. But... someones got to do it!

I love a good piece of ham.

3 year old children.. way smart than a pig ;-)

I'm looking forward to hear why you prefer pink. It better be a good excuse.

Cheers Pinky!

And no more war. I've talked about it enough to last me this life time and the next.

And just so you know, and I swear on my life this is the truth:

I predicted that Georgie boy was going to screw up America long before he became president. People thought I was a quack. I had to fight, I looked like an idiot to some. Then I just looked forward to the day of my vindication. And here it is. Some remember what I said, some don't. The ones who don't have hippocampuses the size of Kev-daddy, so they dont count.

But I said it and that counts... for me at least.

I've cried too much regarding this fucked up illegal war. It's truly disgusting and makes me mad.

So, I'll talk to you later pinky. Have a nice night.

They used to serve a lot of pork to prisoners. But there was this one prison I worked at out in oregon for awhile where there were several vegans. Those guys put up a big protest and got them to also serve tofu. They couldn't stop the carnis from eating pork, of course.

But it takes a brave man to eat tofu in prison. No surprise to me, the same men who were brave enough to eat tofu were also excellent cryers. Kind of like our pal Flamingo.

Who has, actually, been a little more irascible than I thought at first. I may not like him as much as I originally thought I did. I'm actually starting to think he might be a bit of a jerk, just like he says. But since I know he cried over that movie and he has cried about a book before, I still have hope for him. And respect.
