Vegan Ethics

Megan McArdle continues her recent spate of vegan blogging with such imponderables as “Should vegetarians wear leather?” and the strange dichotomy of “vegans not eating honey, but happy to eat produce pollinated by captive bees.”

On commenter quips, “Reminds me of the level 7 vegan from the Simpsons, vegans who don’t eat anything that casts a shadow.”

Apparently, not much is happening in the world of economics the last two or three days.

    With Kucinich struggling to break the 1% threshold of public support, somebody has to take over the vegan propaganda mantle!

    As I said at my own place some weeks back:

    I’m firmly convinced that going Vegan is the next to last step along the road to total insanity. Heather Mills is an example

    A serious vegan is one who before swallowing seawater, separates the zooplankton from the phytoplankton.

    The salt is already provided.

  5. Grewgills says:

    So Bit, all Jains are either insane or one step away? How religiously intolerant of you.

  6. Gollum says:

    Bit’s point is a truism: Heather Mills is “one step” away from pretty much everything.
