Video: Live Earth Impact

The Daily Show examines the environmental awareness that was raised by the Live Earth Concert(s).


Ahhh….The Simpsons

If you have been keeping up with this site for awhile, you can probably tell that I am a Simpsons fan. And, I don’t care what anyone says, the Simpsons as good today as they have ever been! There I said it. Here is a fantastic clip of the new movie coming out on July 27th.



The Fifth Beatle

This is a classic Simpsons episode. I figured with Paul McCartney releasing his new album this week and it being Friday, what better way to end the work week that with a good clip?!


Cow Hormones

As presented by Stephen Colbert…


The first time anyone posted in the wannaveg forum was by a gentleman named Mortimor Von Sprout (aka, Andrew).  Andrew is a loyal reader,  commenter and friend of mine.  He has a bit of a creative side and came up the following bio and post for Mortimor.

The Bio of Mortimor Von Sprout
I hail from the small vegetable-rich land known as the Duchy of Water Cress, the world’s hot-bed of vegetarian resistance for centuries. The last animal killed within it’s borders was a dung beetle, who, in the year of our Vegi-Lord Seventeen and eighty two accidentally stumbled into the road and was crushed by a free roaming Tibetan Yak who had been evacuated to Water Cress to save him from Chinese poachers. I believe passionately in the right of animals to live, and of vegetables to be grown to their succulent best and consumed by the peace-loving Hippycrats of Water Cress. If, like me, you desire to tear asunder the oppressive regimes of the carnivores who mascarade as men, join me, and we shall topple them together!!

Here is the post:

Mortimor’s Post
Good day kind sirs, I would like to formally introduce myself and pledge my life and sizeable fortune to the war on meat eaters. I am the Honourable Mortimer Von Sprout the 4th, of the Duchy of Water Cress. If all goes according to our plans that we have neatly laid out on recycled hemp paper and drawn with renewable corn oil based inks, the war shall be swift and brutal and we shall feast on the flesh of these foul meat eaters before long…and yes, I am aware of the irony of that statement.

Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised when Andrew decided to go vegetarian one day a week.  He’s been doing it for a couple months now and has the following to say about his experience.  No joking around this time. :)

What does going vegetarian one day a week mean to me? Is it a life changing commitment? Some sort of world altering epiphany? To tell you the truth, it’s really pretty easy. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a lazy, self-absorbed, set-in-his-ways kind of guy. My diet consists largely of whatever’s easiest to get my hands on at any given moment, and frankly, I don’t really like many vegetables. So when I was first presented with the idea of “going veg” it seemed like it would be a real pain in the a$@. In reality, it turns out it’s just the opposite. I was surprised by how much of what I already eat was one minor step away from being meatless, and by how much else was easy to get my hands on. Now, I realize that eating pasta without the meat sauce, or cheese pizza doesn’t make me a vegetarian gourmet, but it contributes a little to my health, contributes a little to the environment, and best of all it allows me to feel good about having done both those things without really doing much at all(In case you forgot, I’m lazy and selfish). Give it a try and you’ll be surprised how easy it is.

Many thanks to Andrew for his thoughts so far, I am glad you are enjoying the new change in your diet.  Keep up the good work! 



From Wikipedia:  In the Simpsons’ episode, the tomacco was accidentally created by Homer Simpson when he "planted a little bit of everything" and fertilized his tomato and tobacco fields with plutonium.  The result is a tomato that apparently has a dried, gray tobacco center, and, although being described as tasting terrible by many characters, is also immediately and powerfully addictive.

Homer was able to mix genetic engineering and irradiation into one plant….Monsanto must have a bunch of Simpson’s fans working for it.


Rat Poison

This just in….The FDA Certifies GM Corn As Rat Poison (via Ethicurean).  Good news for pet food manufacturer Menu Foods, they will not need to import rat poison from China anymore.  We have it locally. 


I don’t eat ham

It has been awhile since I posted a video on the site.   This is a look into what vegans do not eat.  Apparently, Steven the Vegan does not eat ham.  The first part of the video is a little silly, but the end will get a chuckle out of you. ;) 


no pot for cows?

I do not think this fits into going veg one day a week or anything like that.  But it is pretty funny.

From Ananova

Switzerland’s Agriculture Ministry has called on the country’s farmers to stop feeding their cows cannabis.

Several recent adverts have promoted feeding hemp to farm animals even after a March 2005 law banning its use.

The Agriculture Ministry has now warned that farmers doping their cows will be prosecuted.

Farmers consider the cheap and easy to grow plant is good for their cows.

They believe the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, makes cows happy and produce more milk, but the Agriculture Ministry say THC can get into the milk and create a health risk.

They also said that there was a risk that Swiss cheese products could be contaminated.


grocery store wars

I’ve seen a lot of ‘Star Wars’ parodies, but this takes the cake.  I love how R2D2 is a block of tofu.  (if you can’t see this video you probably need to install "flash’ player)
