A vegan too Far

From the Idiots Covered in Fake Blood Department A vegan who practices extreme veganism, a plant-based freak of nature, one, who in our book, goes too far even by liberal standards, using aggressive tactics, ones that are pushy, obnoxious and intimidating in an outrageous attempt to gain attention, and in so doing, persuade the meatheads … Continue reading A vegan too Far

Bummed out in Veganuary

IMO, worst month of the year! Cold outside with spring nowhere in sight. Post-holiday blues at an all-time high, Christmas bills due, tired of the same old vegan meals.

A plant-based Dilemma

My wife is a carnivore and I am vegan. Does this mean we are incompatible?

The Mad Magazine of the vegan World?

Or is the Vegan Swamp destined for obscurity? Are we just another unknown wanna-be vegan blogger trying to be different from the vegan foodies?

The woke Vegan

What is woke? A racial slur? An invention of the cancel culture?

The gluten-free diet Cult

I always suspected there was something off about all this gluten-free nonsense. It just makes no sense to me that some people are so quick to jump on these dietary fads for no legitimate reasons. They are happy to force the food industry to adapt at great expense just to pacify those who need a … Continue reading The gluten-free diet Cult
