No, but my mom can.
 
2014-03-21 08:14:23 AM  
Depends.  Do I also need to eat a 20-foot bun and the sauerkraut covering?  Because then you're asking a lot.

Yeah, I've seen her. She's even better with the golf ball and 20 feet of garden hose.

Came to give subby -1 for failing to work the obligatory "your mom" in to any sausage-related headline.

But I see you have this covered.

Oh please fark off.
If you decide to be a vegetarian, there are certain foods you give up.  And sausages is one of them.  Go chew a carrot, and stop creating terrible abominations-of-nature "vegetarian" versions of meat.

Don't mind me, I'm just waiting for the Farkettes to chime in.

/no.  That's not a bratwurst, I'm happy to see you.

Oh, US-made sausage? Nope.

This is what goes through my head when I see 'veggieburgers' in the store.

Stop it. You're a gorram vegetarian now, act like it. That means, by definition, you're not getting burgers. If this is just too much for you, stop tailoring your diet to bullshiat diet lingo.

I think the vegetarians make veggie equivalents to show meat-eaters that they can have (sort of) the same food but without the meat, not for the vegetarians to cling to something resembling a meat-centric lifestyle.

If I could have a veggie burger that had the same taste and texture as ground beef, that would be fine. (I'd also like to turn lead into gold.) I'd still eat regular burgers too but it would be nice to have a more healthful alternative.

Falafels are acceptable because they've been around for centuries.  (I frequently encounter people who have no idea what a falafel is, and I usually say it's basically the original veggie burger.)

/wouldn't mind a good brat about now
 
2014-03-21 09:11:17 AM  
if it's truly an authentic german brat, and not some johnsonville fancy hotdog disguised as a bratwurst...
short answer: yes
long answer: when the hell are you bringing me the brat?!? i want it now! with proper crusty broetchen and mittel-scharf senf. seriously, NOW!

Twenty feet and six pounds? Must be the same noodle making jig they use for sausages at IHOP.

The convenient and versatile "burger" format has transcended meat for those of us who prefer not to eat it. Veggie burgers are popular and more readily available than ever. U mad bro?

no one is making you eat them

i sure as heck don't eat them. i just simply walk right past them in the store

must admit, i've had some boca burgers that were pretty tasty, but that was my first wife's choice to buy them...i didn't actively seek them out

only veggie-based meat-like patty i eat is fallafal...and those are even deep fried

Riiiiiiiight.  Because we all know that a cheeseburger is just cheese and buns.  So you can stand with the tards on that end of the room running around calling whatever you want a burger, or you can realize what a catastrophic lexical abberation you are trying to perpetuate here and help change things for the better.

No, but nobody wants to pay for it anymore, so you end up with the cheapest/worst people doing the most work.

Kinda like making sausage.  The good stuff is out there, but you've got to pay for it.

wildcardjack: Twenty feet and six pounds? Must be the same noodle making jig they use for sausages at IHOP.


This. As someone who stuffs his own sausages (not a euphamism), 4 6" sausages (24") made from medium hog casings (the standard size) are approximately 1lb, so 6lbs should be 12 feet max.
