Look, if you want to be Vegan, that's fine.  But if you don't want to eat meat, quit making fake meat out of vegetable matter.  It just tells me that you're not quite as committed to your philosophy as you claim.

This is PETA we're talking about here.

What do want to bet they turned right around and killed the cow?

Damn insane hypocrites long ago ran any real animal lovers out of the organization.

Non Sequitur Man: What vegan jerky looks like:

[img.fark.net image 723x482]


I went backpacking with a vegan once. He offered everyone some Tofurky Jerky when we stopped for a rest. It looked and smelled like a smashed dog turd. He did not get any takers. We also spotted him using Burt's Bees lipbalm on that trip, which contains honey, and is decidedly non-vegan. He was also wearing leather boots.

Any angle to promote a belief and the behaviors that it requires. Almost like a religion..

They gave them some vegan jerky and a book about veganism.

Nothing like being 'rewarded' with a religious tract...

I wouldn't even comment on any of these vegan threads, if vegans didn't proselytize like evangelical christians...

zeroflight222: Vegan jerky... So a fruit roll-up?


My mother called hers "fruit leather".  Yeah, I'd go for that.

I don't think their philosophy has anything to do with dietary enlightenment.

I don't get PETA people. Why is it that they have no problem with eating fungi, plantae, protozoa, bacteria, and chromista, but they draw the line at animalia? That seems arbitrary.

Vegan's eating "meat" is cultural appropriation.

Soy jerky isn't terrible, but no one would mistake it for the genuine article.

By, "the genuine article," you mean food, right?

I think the hardest part about being a Vegan is not being able to have any pudding.

Veganism is such a fraud. Vegans spend so much time in the produce section that they think that this is somehow a virtue in and of itself.

But if you're not eating organic and supporting fair trade, you're just contributing to Big Agriculture, and you're still farking the planet.

Yes, eat vegetables, but do it in a socially responsible manner.

Pudding is easy, Nut/soy milk + sugar & flavor + cornstarch. Cook in saucepan over heat stirring constantly. It's done when it reaches the desired thickness. Not that different from making gravy.


I think you may have missed that one.

Could have given them anything else, trail-mix, vegan protein bars, heck, even a nice basket of vegetables. It's just that the thought of vegetable jerky sounds awful; you'll get some mush that doesn't have the consistency of jerky, or something that has the consistency of jerky but has so much fiber it's offending to the tastebuds.
