Like a good “follower” and an even better “friend”, I’ve been following your Tweets and your Facebook updates very closely. Love the pics from the Hamptons! …and that you’re comfortable enough with your body to wear that bathing suit. Very admirable. And when I saw you had decided to go vegan to help the environment I was ready to “like” your post right away – even more than I “liked” your deep thoughts on the Batman shooting and the Democratic Platform including gay marriage. After all, anyone who can honestly give up meat for the good of the environment is worthy of a “like”.
But then I noticed in your dinner Tweets and updates that you hadn’t really given up meat. After all, “veggies” don’t taste like hamburgers; tofu doesn’t look like chicken patties; and soy isn’t supposed to replace bacon. Maybe you’ve seen too many mid-morning talk shows on vegetarian food products; maybe you’re too busy Tweeting to slice real tomatoes; maybe you were drinking real dirty martinis when we went over this and it all got foggy, but either way, it looks like I’m going to have to go say this again: Garden Burgers Don’t Come From Gardens.
So in tonight’s episode I get real – yet again – about foodiness vegetarian products; what’s actually in products like vegan burgers, tofu hotdogs and soy bacon (pretty much everything in the world but vegetables); the fact that processed vegetarian products are a foodiness bamboozle because they are worse for your health and the environment than eating meat; how “vegetarians” who eat foodiness products designed to taste like meat are like tranny chasers who are into men, but need them to look like women; and what real vegetarianism is, which is eating non-meat real food.
So pay attention this time, and don’t make me de-“friend” you over a tofu burger!
