veganism


I have tried hard to be a vegan all week and was nearly successful until last night when we ate at Box Hill Korean BBQ and I ordered the vegetarian pancake, which was very eggy. Well, I will get there soon enough. I am reminded then of the woman in the Gladstone Park delicatessen ordering thin strips of some kind of gross ham product and saying 'I'm vegetarian, but I just like the taste' (i.e. the taste of some grotesque dried waxy leg). She said it twice, and as you know (I think Samuel Johnson said it) to say a stupid thing twice shows you are a real dumbass. But I have discovered the university food co-op now and eaten there four days out of five and it is very good for an aspirant vegan like myself. It is so totally a throwback to 1983, I would say, particularly since it seems to be populated so thoroughly by actory people and people learning hula hoop. Wow! Love it.

You sure it wasn't Samuel L. Jackson who said that?

what Judas priest album cover is the bottom shot?

David said...

Good joke. For the uninitiated, the album is actually titled The Bottom Shot.

I used to eat at the Food Co-op in 1984. It was very 1983 then too. (Well, I could hardly say it was very 1984...) Best vegan chocolate cake ever!
