Bring it on down to Veganville!
This is a clip from Saturday Night Live where Justin Timberlake plays an all singing, all dancing block of tofu who extols the virtues of a meat free diet. This makes me scream with laughter (which is a bit of a problem as I am watching it at the public library and they frown on screaming laughter here.) I found it incredibly
Ok, not the dancing block of tofu (but who knows what tofu gets up to when the fridge door is closed) but the meat eater who calls you a hippy moron or thinks that if you just taste meat again you'd want to eat it.
Paul McCartney once said, "if slaughterhouses had glass walls everyone would be a vegetarian." For me, kindness and compassion taste better than suffering, simple as that. We eat a delicious, varied diet full of flavour and nothing had to be afraid, feel pain or die to fill our plates.
Enjoy the clip--especially the happy ending. As he says, "it's never too late to change."
