Get a little liquor in the system and even the biggest weirdo freak vegan will chow down on a juicy burger. According to a recent poll in the UK a large amount of so-called vegetarians admit to snacking on tasty animal flesh after having a few too many adult beverages.
Via The Independent UK:
Two in five of 1,789 vegetarians questioned owned up to treating themselves to a sneaky kebab after a few drinks.
And one in three said they indulged in meat every time they went out drinking.
Twenty-seven per cent of the lapsing veggies said they ate bacon, while 19 per cent opted for fried chicken and 14 per cent confessed to munching on sausages.
The survey was conducted by money-saving website Voucher Codes Pro.
George Charles, founder of the website, said: “I know a few ‘vegetarians’ who sometimes crave meat, but it seems that a few are giving into their cravings when drunk.
“I think it’s important for friends of these ‘vegetarians’ to support them when drunk and urge them not to eat meat as I’m sure they regret it the next day.” Read More…
I say bullshit, if you have a friend who doesn’t eat meat its you’re duty as a normal person to encourage them to quit their foolishness.
It’s not just British “vegetarians,” 84% of idiots go back to eating meat when they remember that steak is tasty.

That $5 jar of Jif Peanut butter on the shelf at the grocery store just not your thing? Well the federal government has something for you. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has created the worlds most expensive jar of peanut butter.
Is this some kind of special peanut butter, is it made from some rare peanut that can only be found in some remote hard to reach corner of the world? Nope.
It is just normal, run of the mill peanut butter. The only thing special about it is the fact that it was made by an entity of the United States Federal government — thus the inflated price tag.
So why the eye-boggling price tag? It has to do with the labor involved: Dozens of scientists and lab technicians around the country spent time analyzing the peanut butter. This peanut butter is ”standard reference material, designed not to be eaten but… to be fed into gas chromatographs, mass spectrometers and other analytical equipment.” The NIST’s job is to provide a baseline product and respective analysis so that manufacturers have a reference by which to compare other, similar foods.
When it was first released in 2003, the NIST’s peanut butter was a huge step forward in food group analysis and cost $140 per jar. It has since more than quintupled in price.
Though it contains no gold, this is the gold standard of peanut butter. Read More…
I wonder if the government has a $1000 jar of grape jelly?
All he wanted was to be left alone to ride his bicycle and eat some Taco Bell. Gabriel Harris, 33, was arrested last Sunday morning in New Smyrna Beach, FL after a drunken night which ended with a scuffle with police. Police were called to the scene after Harris caused a scene when he was denied service at the drive-thru because he was on a bicycle and because the restaurant had just closed.
Reports said police found Harris sitting on the bicycle at the speaker. Police said as officers asked Harris to leave they spotted a Swiss Army knife on his belt loop. An officer reached for the knife, but Harris grabbed his wrist.
The officer wrestled Harris to the ground and arrested him.
Harris faces a charge of resisting arrest with violence. Read More…
It looks like the State of Utah is doing a great job of locking up hardened, violent criminals. 42-year-old Billy Goree, of Ogden, Utah, was sentenced up to five years for the violent and heinous crime of swiping two gas station burritos.
I shudder at the thought of what Utah does to people who forget to feed the parking meter.
Judge Scott Hadley said Tuesday he felt uncomfortable sending the 42-year-old man to prison for shoplifting a meal, but the man has a long history of theft arrests.
Billy Goree said he was hungry when he stole the burritos and was willing to change, but the judge said he’s violated his probation in the past.
Police say Goree was caught stealing the burritos on a security camera in September and police found and arrested him nearby. Read More…
I wonder how many sex-offenders and murderers will have to be released to make room for yet another violent burrito thief.
When will it end? We need to stop this violent burrito culture, once and for all we need to rid our streets of these dangerous burritos, taquitos, enchiladas and assorted similar weapons.
This past Sunday, Travis Micho, 52, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was arrested after on battery charges after throwing a dangerous burrito at an employee of the assisted living facility where he had been living.
Via The Smoking Gun:
Travis Micho, 52, tossed the burrito during a dispute with Claressa Tharp, according to a Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office report. Micho, deputies reported, “grabbed his burrito from his dinner plate and threw it at Tharp as she was standing across the table from him.”
Tharp, 40, who works at Harmony House Assisted Living in Hayden, was struck with “several pieces of the burrito.” The balance of the burrito “was on the wall,” investigators reported. Read More…
This could have been worse, thankfully he didn’t use the much more dangerous Chimichanga.
Would this be called a starch infection?
Via Columbia Reports:
Shocked medical staff in a clinic in the central Colombian town of Honda have discovered a potato growing inside a patient’s vagina, local media reported on Wednesday.
The bizarre phenomenon was discovered when doctors attended a 22-year-old woman complaining of abdominal pains this week.
The embarrassed young woman explained that she had been advised by her mother to insert a potato into her vagina as a means of avoiding unwanted pregnancy.
“My mom told me that if I didn’t want to get pregnant, I should put a potato up there, and I believed her.” the unnamed patient was quoted as saying by local news website HSB Noticias.
After leaving the potato in place for around 2 weeks she began to experience intense pain in her lower abdomen. The potato had germinated, and grown roots inside the lady’s private parts.
When the nurse went to examine the patient, she originally thought she had been the target of a practical joke, as she found roots emerging from the young woman´s vagina.
The offending root vegetable was removed without need for surgery, and there should be no lasting physical effects on the young woman.
Carolina Rojas, the attending nurse, pointed the finger of blame at the woman´s mother for giving her daughter such bad advice in terms of contraception methods available. Read More…
Squid ink in your burger? Have it your way, thankfully this abomination is only available in Burger King restaurants in Japan.
Burger King Japan has released the “Kuro Burger” (“Black Burger”), with buns made from bamboo charcoal, an onion and garlic sauce made with squid ink, beef patties made with black pepper, and black cheese, which is also apparently made with bamboo charcoal.
Based on appearance I’d call it the “Cancer Burger.”
Via the LA Times:
You can order the Kuro Burger Pearl with the bread, cheese and patty, or the Kuro Burger Diamond with lettuce, tomato, onion and mayonnaise. And in case you’re wondering, the mayonnaise is still white.
The Kuro Burgers will be available for a limited time beginning Sept. 19 at Burger King locations in Japan. Read More…

A Utah woman is accused of doing one of the most despicable things a person can do… abusing bacon.
Oh yeah, the awesomely-named Cameo Adawn Crispi, 32, of Uintah County, UT, is also accused of using a pound of the heavenly meat to try and start a fire in her ex-boyfriend’s house.
According to police, Ms. Crispi repeatedly called & drunk-texted her former lover while inside his home last March, where she left the bacon smoking over a lit burner.
Crispi, is facing charges of arson, burglary, assault by a prisoner, interfering with an arresting officer, electronic communication harassment and intoxication.
Via Deseret News:
The first officer to reach the house said Crispi was obviously impaired and there was smoke coming out the front door.
“I asked to come in and observed a wood stove left open with a fire burning inside and hot coals on the floor around the stove,” the officer wrote, noting that he also found a pound of bacon sitting on a cookie sheet on top of the kitchen stove.
“I observed the burner to be on the setting ‘High’ and the bacon to be severely burned and smoking badly,” the officer wrote. Read More…
After police managed to get the fire extinguished, because she was so intoxicated, Crispi had to be taken to the hospital before she could be booked. She was found to have a 0.346 blood-alcohol content and when asked about the fire by the doctor treating her she replied, that it was to “…get back at (her ex-boyfriend).”
So apparently there is a “secret menu” item at Arby’s that is so awesome that the only way to make it better would be to include a cigar and a shot of whiskey.
Arby’s had been recently pushing a new ad campaign to show people that they are much more then just roast beef sandwiches. With that campaign, came a new opportunity.
Via The Washington Post:
“People started coming in and asking, ‘Can I have that?’” said Christopher Fuller, the company’s vice president of brand and corporate communications. So Arby’s began granting their wish.
The “Meat Mountain,” as it’s called, will not be listed on the menu, but store associates will make it for customers who ask. The price is $10. For that, you get a bun and, from the bottom up:
2 chicken tenders
1.5 oz. of roast turkey
1.5 oz. of ham
1 slice of Swiss cheese
1.5 oz. of corned beef
1.5 oz. brisket
1.5 oz. of Angus steak
1 slice of cheddar cheese
1.5 oz. roast beef
3 half-strips of bacon
Arby’s says the Meat Mountain is so tall that it won’t fit into the traditional clamshell packaging. So if you dare to scale the Mountain, it will come wrapped in paper. Read More…
I can just smile as I hear the pitiful sobs of vegan losers throughout the world. I wonder how long before an offended Muslim complains that there is bacon in there?
Bowing to political correctness, and citing “safety concerns” the owner of Sneakers Bistro in Winooski, VT removed an advertisement that read “YIELD FOR BACON,” because a local Muslim resident found the sign offensive.
It got there as part of “Operation Bloom.”
A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word “bacon” on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.
It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.
The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings. Read More…
On their now deleted Facebook page Sneakers Bistro had this response:
“We are here to serve people BREAKFAST, not politics. We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community. There were also concerns raised about safety. Removing it was not a difficult decision. We still love bacon. We still love eggs. Please have the political conversation elsewhere.”
I’m interested to know what these “concerns raised about safety,” were? Did they think that the sign was going to cause potential traffic accidents over cars stopping in the street over the thoughts of wonderful tasty bacon goodness? Or were they concerned about violence over their harmless and amusing ad?
It is a free country, or at least it is supposed to be. Much like I wrote in my post about atheists attacking an Arkansas restaurant for their church bulletin promotion, I believe that in a free society small-business owners should be allowed to run their businesses as they see fit. So they have every right to pull their sign down due to political correctness, I just think that its sad and pathetic.
