Take Me To Your Leader

Hey look, as a vegetarian I'm all for this Veggie Pride Parade and I appreciate the intentions of radical groups like PETA because in the end we're all rooting for the same team here, but dressing up like a Lima bean, posing as a broccoli florette or wearing a panel of grass on your head isn't going to make people take you seriously. People already think vegetarians and vegans are rebel aliens on furlough from Neptune and stuff like this isn't helping.

Read this masterstroke from Slate's Taylor Clark: Meatless Like Me: I may be a vegetarian, but I still love the smell of bacon.
