Thousands giving up all animal products for a month as part of Veganuary

What’s the point or purpose of giving up an interesting form of oral sex for a month?

  1. I sodding loath these “month of” nudge things.

    But, I have to say, I have already failed miserably to even think of being vegan and look forward to continuing to fail miserably throughout the rest of the month.

    In fact, I’m even (somewhat) looking forward to going back to work on Tuesday so I can have a bacon and sausage bap on the way in.

  2. So Much For Subtlety

    You know, I remember when the Telegraph was a Tory paper. It was actually something to admire in those days. It published weirdos but they were smart weirdos. This Patrick Sawer is no Bernard Levin.

    Veganuary is an international initiative, with thousands taking part in the US. But the second highest number of participants comes from Britain, where more than 3,200 people took part last year

    So in other words about one in twenty thousand people in the UK took part. 0.0005%. I would be prepared to bet that more people have sex with other people dressed in Princess Leia’s slave bikini than that. And that is just the men. It is approximately f**k all. Why do we care? Why are they wasting space telling us?

    Among Veganuary supporters are several celebrities, such as Vivienne Westwood, the fashion designer; actors Martin Shaw, Peter Egan and Kellie Bright; and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah.

    So does this diet turn you into a prime Class A c*nt or does it just attract them? How would you like it if your child turned out like any of these people? Admittedly I don’t know who Kellie Bright is, but I am prepared to hate on sight anyone who spells their name that way.

    “More than 75 per cent of people who have tried going vegan for a month report an improvement in their health. They said they slept better and they lost an average of 6lbs as a result of their changed diet.”

    So basically they were all smug gits who were starving themselves to death slowly. Great.

  3. We appear to be in the era of Late Post-Protestantism, in which the primary concern of the worst affected is the ostentatious display of moral superiority. Grow Movember facial hair, starve for Veganuary and drink nowt but water for Dry January, admire Caitlyn “Bruce” Jenner as a beauty, and join a welcome choir for migrants.

    “Have you humblebragged today?”

  4. More than 75 per cent of people who have tried going vegan for a month report an improvement in their health. They said they slept better and they lost an average of 6lbs as a result of their changed diet.

    Similar advantages are reported by users of homeopathy, crystal healing and anal jetwashing. That’s why medicine invented the Double Blind Trial; because such reportage is absolutely worthless.

  5. I remember the days when you knew what newspaper a link was from even before clicking on it, just by reading the headline. Now it is impossible to tell the Telegraph and Guardian apart.

  6. Well then it’s still what it always was, the voice of the Tory Party, since the Tory Party is now indistinguishable from The Guardian.

  7. …the Tory Party is now indistinguishable from The Guardian.

    But there is much more evidence that you are a closet socialist. The evidence is quite strong:

    1. You prefer the period 1945-79, over post-1979.

    2.You express sympathy with moral relativism and subjectivism, which are classic leftist doctrines

    3. You sympathise with the rights of trade unions when their behaviour often infringes the liberty of others to go about their business

    4. You often see things purely in class terms, using the revealing marxian term ‘bourgeois’ and making implausible claims about the virtue of the working classes and the vices of the middle classes.

  8. Don’t be so hard on the ex Torygraph.

    The basic problem is that there’s very little stuff worth publishing, partly because there just isn’t, and partly because with the spread of the Net, there’s millions of places to publish.

    So unless they publish much, much, less quality has to go down.
