Whenever friends find out that I’ve gone Vegetarian, they usually stare at me in disbelief, follwed with a variety of the funniest looks of bewilderment.
“Are you sure?”
“How could you, why would you?”
“But you used to love ______… don’t you miss ______ at all?”
People say I’m being a fadist, some say it’s probably just a phase.
And I say, peas be with you! 🙂
Because vegetables are funny little things (have you seen a potato lately?), I find that vegetarians are the
butts roots of some of the crudest, most sarcastic, and ultimately, funniest statements out there.
“I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants.”
– A. Whitney Brown
“HAM AND EGGS – A day’s work for a chicken; A lifetime commitment for a pig. ”
“Cabbage: A familiar kitchen-garden vegetable about as large and wise as a man’s head. ”

“Asparagus inspires gentle thoughts. ”
– Charles Lamb
“Vegetarian – that’s an old Indian word meaning ‘lousy hunter’”

“Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge because you are a vegetarian.”
