What gets me is this. I have no problem with people being either vegetarian or vegan but why do they insist on making their vegetables look like sausages, burgers or mince? Years ago when I was driving a band on tour, one of the band members was a vegetarian and we had stopped at a motorway service area for lunch and he ordered a vegetarian breakfast which consisted, amongst other things a vegetarian sausage and vegetarian bacon. No bear in mind that this chap is a well known musician, who I won't name, I proper laid into him about making his veggies look like meat. I ended up telling him that if he wanted a sausage he should order a sausage if not he should eat cabbage. The rest of the band were in stiches and fortunately he also saw this as funny.

I "had words" with the wife the other day because she bought a spread that had the words "suitable for vegans" on the lid.

I was in a discussion with a vegan on Monday, she was harping on about the pain the animals went through, I pointed her towards her Doc Martin boots and said, "animals died for your boots love." End of argument.

woman that reversed into my car 2 weeks ago she's denied to her insurers that the accident took place. As the two witnesses are both drivers for my firm they are not considered acceptable so looks like I am stuck with the bill for repairs for an accident that wasn't my fault :evil:

That's like saying a fella who sees his brother get murdered is unable to be a witness?
