I had vegan friends who ate duck a friend raised, because they were 100% certain that

It was treated humanely
Killed humanely
And killing was unfortunate but necessary (he was mistakenly given a breed that would grow too large to stand on it's own goddamn legs within the next year. Sigh.)

Roadkill would go to waste otherwise (well...), death wasn't intentional, and it got to hang out free as a bird it's whole life. The logic follows perfectly, subby, if the reason you're a vegan is animal welfare.

How do you expect the carrion to carry on? They need that road kill.

If an animal is road injured can a Vegan put it down and eat it?

What if the vegan is the one that road kills the animal?  This is essentially hunting.

Sunset: Like, here at the Natural Causes Restaurant, we are really, like, beyond vegetarianism. Like, we serve meat, but we don't believe in killing it. 

Jason: Dig it! Like, we feel that, like, slaughtered animals are full of fear, you know? And eating fear produces bad karma, you know? So, like, we serve animals that only died from natural causes! [ hands them a pair of menus ] Here are your menus. 

Shelly Melcher: [ looking at the menu ] Well, this menu doesn't describe what you have in the dishes. What's, uh, the Kahutek Special? 

Sunset: Oh, well, see -- it changes all the time. Like, you never know what's gonna die at any given moment. 

Jason: Like, today, the Kahutek Special might be leg of lamb, because we have a sheep back in the kitchen that's dying of anthrax. [ to Sunset ] Do you wanna go see if it's dead yet, Sunset? 

Sunset: Sure.

A vegan by definition avoids animal products. The ethical underpinnings are irrelevant - if you don't use animal products because you think the aliens embed nano-tags, you're still vegan. On the other hand, if you eat animal products, no matter what your reasoning, you are not a vegan. Again, by definition.

Veganism is a behavior, not a philosophy. Your friends are every bit as annoying as "vegetarians" who cheerfully eat fish and chicken.

No. No, it's not.

FTFY. Vegans refrain from all unnecessary animal use and promotion of such. Anyone can call themselves vegan while disregarding vegan tenets but it doesn't make it so. Making excuses like "humanely treated" is the province of welfarists--an entirely different group. Same difference between those who favored "humane" human slavery and the abolitionists. There's a wealth of information out there on the topic.

See also "I found a human arm in the dumpster and ate it so it wouldn't go to waste". If that makes sense to you, well okay then.

The ethical argument is part and parcel, as defined by Donald Watson who coined the term.

"The word "veganism" denotes a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude - as far as is possible and practical - all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. In dietary terms it denotes the practice of dispensing with all products derived wholly or partly from animals."

I lived with vegan roommates for a time. They were not self-righteous about it either, and I didn't even know they were vegan until I had been there for a month or so. One of them was a half decent cook, though his assurances of 'you won't even know this isn't meat' were wildly inaccurate. If you don't want to eat meat, that's your business but I don't understand why you still have to dress up your food as meat. I once asked one of them why and the only answer I got was 'its just something I have to do' which I thought was not a satisfying answer but I didn't press him.

In some vegetarian circles it's OK to eat meat from evil cows. You can tell which cows are the evil cows because they have little evil goatees glued to their chins and some of them are wearing sunglasses or monocles.

You should not, however, eat meat from cannibal cows. That's a good way to get Mad Cow disease. The cows should be evil, but not too evil, with well-marbled flesh, but not too much fat.

The only way you know freshness for sure is to see the kill yourself.  So either the car in front of you hits it, or you do.

By which you mean less annoying than they would otherwise be?

You can go ahead and be purist about it if you think infrequent animal protein under specific circumstances disqualifies you from labeling yourself "vegan," but I wouldn't say that kind of moral inflexibility makes you easier to deal with.

I used to know a Vegan that would eat hot dogs. His reasoning was that no one would kill the animal just to make hotdogs, so he felt it was ok to eat the scrap meat.

I only eat meat that I kill.

Although I find it hilarious when people claim to be better than others because they won't harm an animal. As if plants don't feel pain. Hahaha.
