Some leftists like to be perched on their high horse and badger people when they get a wild hare up their donkey.

Fond of explaining the food, gourmet of course, that you are about to eat...kind of prissy folk these vegans...

I'm just gonna keep on bringing home the bacon...and fixing smoked pork belly with brown sugar dressing, sooo delicious you wish there were bacon seeds.

English-language expressions like "bring home the bacon" that refer to the eating of meat.

Lost me right here, with this sentence.

Bring home the bacon refers to the "transportation" of meat, not the consumption.

Dill weeds...

If the wiener still has a pulse it would be an animal. Thus, since my wiener is alive, is it merely a different form of vegan nourishment to eat it?

No animals would suffer (even if she managed to tame a beast)

Huh? I’ve pounded many pints of Stout but never a potato! Is that what the young lads are calling it today?

No more wanking? Flogging molly? Beating the bishop?

Mother of Mercy, saints preserve us...

Man has externalized all his ailities unlike animals. Cooking is externalized digestion. Eating meat of a grass eater is externalizing grass digestion. Computers are a manner of externalizing memory or else our brains would be too big and overheat.

Veganism is this strange self destructive yearning for people to turn back into animals and slaves.
