Generally I hear meat eaters give out about vegans way more than vice versa. Some people are weirdly obsessed with them.

Not as much as a vegan would struggle eating you. They don't have the jaw strength you see.

A few more vegan facts:

Vegans are all left handed, the lack of left handed cutlery is actually what turned them vegan in the first place.

Vegans are usually named Karl or funnily enough, Kobi.

Vegans will only walk on the cracks in the path on 3 out of the 7 days.

Vegans always greet one another by raising the big toe on their right foot but you cannot see this unless they are an extremist vegan who would usually be barefoot or wearing disgusting hemp sandles.

I'm certainly not a vegan, a confirmed meat eater I am. But I do find it strange that meat eaters can be so fussy about the animals they get their meat from. For example would anyone here eat meat from a dog or a horse.

My only gripe is the "saving the planet stuff".

Surely locally grown/harvested would be better for the planet than quinoa and avocados being shipped to Ireland?

Mines mostly from the butcher.

Of course, of course.

I always though eating local and in season was a part of the vegan ethos. Of course it won't be if you're talking about the bandwagon jumpers who are vegan except for the odd doner kebab.

Nope. That's an urban myth tbh. Way more the other way around here. For a bunch that don't eat meat - they are weirdly obsessed with it and spend their time giving out about meat and farming.

Have eaten both.
Horse is so similar to beef hence the horaemeat scandal from few years ago.
Dog on the other hand was poor quality and not something I’d try again.

In Ireland we have a terribly narrow selection of meats we eat. Go on the continent and they eat a wider variety and more of each animal too.

Draw a 20 Kilometer circle around your home, I'd say it'd be hard maintain a balanced diet with food grown within it excluding meat.
I'm from Mullingar so it's beef to the heels around here!

Vegans are anti farming rather than anti animal cruelty.

Have you ever seen them protesting at a halting site where horses are raced to death regularly. Or at puppy farms where family pets are reared. No they are just anti farming.
