• Curious about veganism or vegetarianism? Why not ask us a question? (You don't have to sign up, or be vegan or vegetarian!)

Silly/Annoying/Funny Things Omnis Say

Our house guest tried to explain to me how unhealthy vegan food is, it has poison and rubber in it, and yes, she was being serious. :rolleyes: I walked into the other room while she was ranting about it and left my roommate to listen to her. :p

She was here two weeks so I knew it was a lost cause to try to talk rationally to her, she's one of those who believes she's right about everything, even if you show her proof she's wrong.

"A cow can milk throughout her life after one pregnancy. We had a dairy cow that milked for years and was only pregnant once in her early life."

This magic cow could solve a lot of the world's hunger problem. Hell, it probably doesn't even need to eat!

If the cow was continuously milked without a break, would that be possible? Personally, I wouldn't want that done to me... but I'm guessing they would consider that to be humane.
Parents are notorious for lying to their kids. Maybe they didn't want to tell them what they did with the babies.

"I thought about going vegetarian or vegan for about two seconds once in my life. But besides my personal preference to eat a wide variety of food, I decided to put more personal effort into helping people than helping animals. A person given a chance can improve, flourish, and work to improve other people as a mentor or even just a role model. I just don't see the same benefits in improving the lives of animals.

I'd buy a cheeseburger for a homeless person any day."

I just replied with "It doesn't have to be one or the other"

She replies with "You are right: there are plenty of opportunities to eat animals and animal products that have been raised ethically in a natural environment."
Humane slaughter argument. Typical.

I once had a supervisor who said she was vegetarian for a while. She apparently ate nothing but lettuce and pasta the entire time, and then complained to me about how boring and unhealthy a vegetarian diet was. :rolleyes:

The most annoying thing? She said after she gave up being vegetarian, she started eating skinless chicken and white rice, and apparently that's all she ate. Every single day for years. Nothing but skinless chicken and white rice. And THAT wasn't boring? :rolleyes:

Yes, it is possible, however, the cow will give more milk if she has a new calf every year. Which is why the industry standard (to uphold profitability) is to "inseminate" the cows as soon as possible after they have given birth.

How about gardien with rice?
I'm not very creative with my meals either. Mostly I eat the same things, sometimes I'll try something new.

I dunno, people can come up with the silliest excuses ever for justifying eating meat, especially if they were formerly a veg*an.

I was picking up a couple frozen (omni) snack/meals for Jerry at Family Dollar.... the check-out gal says, "Oh, these are tasty! Do you like 'em?" I said, "I get them for my friend... I'm a vegetarian." She responds, "I'd do that... if I could" which prompted a puzzled look from me. Then she showed me that she has no teeth. I think she may have been under the ridiculous assumption that veg*ans eat nothing but raw vegetables....
God, I hate this town. LOL :fp: :dismay:

In Holland there was a show (at Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam 4 x 12000 people) by four (stand-up) comedians.

One of them, Guido Weijers, is vegetarian. During the show one of the other comedians, Jandino, was making jokes about vegetarians. He said that he came from a family that always eat chicken. And that it was easier to tell your family that you are gay (homo) than telling that you are vegetarian.

(If you want to see parts of the show, search for "Gabbers" and "ziggo dome". It is in Dutch.)
 
Your vegan food is making me fat (fresh fruit and veggies), I'm going to just stick to my regular diet for now (fried chicken and pastries).
Yeah, you gotta watch out for those darn carrots, they'll make you fat every time, unlike the fast food and packages of cookies and pastries you eat EVERY day. :rolleyes:
