PHRASES like “bringing home the bacon” and “flogging a dead horse” could be CULLED to avoid offending animal lovers, an academic has claimed.
Shareena Hamzah, from Swansea University, claimed the growing popularity of veganism could see people give meat-based metaphors the chop.
It could mean historical sayings such as "taking a bull by the horns" or “putting all one’s eggs in one basket” become a thing of the past.
Shareena Hamzah, of Swansea University, claimed the growing influence of veganism will raise awareness of animal cruelty and put an end to meaty descriptions.
Writing on academic website The Conversation she said: “In today’s reality, meat is repeatedly the subject of much socially and politically charged discussion, including about how the demand for meat is contributing to climate change and environmental degradation.
"Studies have indicated the negative effects of meat-eating on the human body.
"When concerns about animal welfare are added to the broth, the growth of vegetarianism and veganism threatens to dethrone meat from its position at the top of the food hierarchy.
“Given that fiction often reflects on real world events and societal issues, it may very well be that down the line powerful meat metaphors are eschewed.
"While it’s unlikely we’ll start saying that someone has been overlooked like 'chopped cabbage', some shift in language is inevitable.
“The increased awareness of vegan issues will filter through our consciousness to produce new modes of expression – after all, there’s more than one way to peel a potato.”

Not living very high on the hog...
Cool, I will keep a list so I can use all the forbidden sayings constantly.
How about they offending us with their stupidity?
1984, wasn’t its setting in the UK?............
I should just stop speaking because I’m bound to offend someone.
What about Wheres the beef?
This lady is probably just hamming it up. Or maybe she’s just trying to duck the real issues. But if she’s serious, then I’ve got a real beef with her.
Also next up they would try force stores to cover the meat aisle.
How about “flogging a dead vegan”?
Every single freaking day they dream up new insanity! It’s exhausting!
Let’s draw some new lines on a map and get this over with.
Since they’re all probably athiests anywway I guess they wouldn’t mind this nativity scene:
“It could mean historical sayings such as “taking a bull by the horns” or putting all ones eggs in one basket become a thing of the past.”
I guess I better start using “Quit flogging your dong” every day before it is banned.
“There’s more than one way to barf up tofu.”
I agree with this. In order to prevent vegans from being offended, we need to stop them “bringing home the bacon” right away.
Anyone employing vegans should immediately fire them so as to not offend them by making them “bring home the bacon”.
Oh - and all of you gluten-sensitive “breadwinners” better keep quiet as well....
I know...they can just GTFO of America.
Make their heads explode!
No mercy for vegan fascists!
What if it’s Soy Bacon?
Well, most of what the vegans say about diet is offensive to some number of non-vegans. Ban all their BS, too.
