Skip to comments.Vegetarians Are People Too! Helpline Launched to SAVE Those Living Sad Meat-Free Lives

A TEAM of jokers at a popular barbeque restaurant have launched a helpline to directly coincide and conflict with National Vegetarian Week.
Veggie week was launched yesterday in the vain attempt of encouraging carnivores to put down the steak and pick up the salad.
The Vegetarian Society says non-meaty food is "fun, tasty and seriously varied" and are trying to boost the popularity of the often demeaned tofu-eater.
Bosses at Red's True Barbecue restaurant based in Leeds and Manchester decided to launch a rival "meat eating" campaign to stop people "going veggie".
The firm has even set up a vegetarian helpline for people to call if they are "worried" about their vegetarian friends offering free burgers, pulled pork, sausages and ribs.
When calling the "helpline" an American sounding cowboy figure says "don't give up on vegetarians, they're people too".
While a bit of a joke, the billboards are certainly doing the trick as everyone at the Daily Star offices is now lusting over the thought of delicately pulled pork and tender beef ribs.
The only salad we'll be eating will be slapped between buns on a juicy, juicy burger.
Cows and pigs are ugly we do them a favor by eating them. Now shut up and pass the bacon cheeseburgers please! ;-)
“...put down the steak and pick up the salad”
SALAD...that’s what food eats!
What a great idea. Hat’s off!
I actually like a Caesar salad with my steak. And yes, even lettuce and tomato on my bacon burgers.
(I suppose around FR that makes me some sort of countercultural left-wing freak...I like to just think I’m on the sensitive side).
So when is National Bacon Week?
Many vegetarians have gone on this way for years until one day the smell of bacon drive them crazy and they have to eat some. Bacon has been the downfall of many veggy types
Although I agree that Americans eat too much meat, I would also argue that vegans are nuts. They’re even dangerous when they try to raise their kids as vegans. Kids need meat to grow up healthy.
If the eyes are on the sides of the head they are prey! If the eyes are in front for bipolar vision, they are Predators.
Where are your eyes located?
If Darwinism is correct, all vegetarian's eyes will eventually migrate to the sides of the heads, IF they live long enough to pass on offspring.
The surgeon comes out to give them an update.
"Carrots, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that your friend will survive."
"The bad news is, I'm afraid he will be a vegetable the rest of his life."
I love vegetables. I’ve even had tofu prepared by a Chinese trend such that it was delicious. They are particularly tasty with beef, lamb, poultry and fish.
You realize that soy has lots of estrogen, right?
Meat has a lot more, especially considering how many hormones they put in them today.
We are omnivores. Scientifically speaking, salad with your steak is OK.
IIRC, according to a “Good Eats” blurb, Baco-Bits was the first soy-based “fake” meat product.
Some of my greens, though, are preprocessed by farm animals.
I just finished a bacon sandwich-—just buttered light rye and bacon. Pure heaven.
Like I said. I have had 3 vegetarian friends. Two died early in their lives.
I’d love to see a source on that.
I consider myself enlightened, I love and am peace with all foods.
Well, except for celery, food of the devil it is!
They can be great - in the right hands.
I’ve had plain cabbage prepared by native Chinese visitors that was EXCELLENT.
I had an American buddy cook zucchini that was SUPERB.
Most of the time that stuff goes straight into my garbage can or compost pile. I very nearly threw up at the dinner table over zucchini my mother made.
But these two instances proved to me the problem was in how it was prepared.
Now if somebody can make turnips, rutabagas, and others tasty, I’ll put down the meat to take a few bites.
Think of it as an edible knife. Peanut butter, tuna fish, cream cheese, Nutella, bacon. Just fill the trough with whatever and chow down...
I’d rather eat a butter knife.
Peel a turnip and eat it raw. It is kind of sweet and crispy, much better than cooked.
thank you for that!
my grandfather used to eat onions like that.
later we began to suspect that he was trying to mask the Wild Turkey.
I agree.There are many meatless dishes that are outstanding.But as a fanatical...and unafraid...omnivore I know that there are just as many meat dishes that qualify as fun and tasty.
Not the way I cook 'em....in beef broth, served up with lots of hot sauce.
Cooking bacon in front of a vegetarian is like waving garlic at a vampire. Only difference is they will grab some and scarf it down
Sure phytoestrogens were one of the things my wife’s oncologist warned us about. My point was that even hated tofu can be prepared to be tasty. It may have been the last time I had any.
Too much meat. Too much - meat? Too! Much meat!
Sorry, that phrase does not parse in English. Wait, yes it does: "There is too much meat in the freezer; the door won't shut."
