Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under Chickens. XML

  1. I’m usually the guy at SuperVegan HQ yelling from my carrel “No cute animal stories! What do they have to do with veganism?!” But I just have to show ya’ll Felix’s Cute Video Collection. Police chickens interceding with quarreling rabbits? A bouncy German music video of kleine eisbär Knut (the one who “animal rights activists [didn’t] advocate killing”)? Otters holding hands? I can’t not share.

  2. Coming soon to a gas station near you...?

    Coming soon to a gas station near you…?

    ConocoPhillips and Tyson Foods have been working this past year to develop a renewable bio-diesel with lower carbon emissions than conventional fuels. They announced their apparently brilliant idea on Monday: their bio-diesel will be made using beef, pork and poultry fat. ConocoPhillips said it hopes to introduce the fuel at gas stations in the Midwest toward the end of this year. More strange than the idea itself is that people are really buying into it–even though it’s an obvious ploy for more money, not for a cleaner environment. A columnist notes that animal fat burns as clean as natural gas. Uh, plus the smell of burning animal fat? “Animal fat is an ideal solution for a breakthrough fuel. The possibilities are not limited to just heating buildings and water. Other projects are underway.”

    I’m partial to the tack taken on Grist: why not suck the fat out of humans to run our cars?

  3. A cockfighting gaff.

    A cockfighting gaff.

    On Tuesday night the Senate unanimously passed the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act, which makes it a felony to transport an animal across state or nation borders for animal fighting; it also prohibits inter-state and national commerce in weapons used for cockfighting. The House passed the same bill a few weeks ago, and it’s expected that Bush will sign it into law.

    In related news, Louisiana, last outpost of cockfighting, is kind of maybe sort of thinking of banning the grisly “sport” as well. Governor Kathleen Blanco and others on Capitol Hill want cockfighting banned, though some politicians just want to co-opt the matches and tax them, to create a financial (blood-soaked) “life jacket” to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.

  4. Compassion Over Killing exposes the Easter Bunny as a chain smoking, porn-addicted alcoholic who’s made a dirty deal with the Egg Industry in the funniest piece of video activism I have seen in a long time.

    I don’t know about you, but I don’t want that nasty critter anywhere near my home.

    Here are a few DIY ideas for Easter family fun:

  5. This is an April Fools post. It isn’t true.

    I never thought I would write this. SuperVegan co-founder Olivia Lane is no longer vegan. Olivia and I have been friends for years, and without her, SuperVegan would likely have never come to exist. I’m sad and I’m angry. Olivia had tremendous spirit, dedication, and enthusiasm for all things vegan. No more.

    This morning, Olivia and I, along with her girlfriend, Jessica Valdez, attended the Post Punk Kitchen brunch at Vox Pop. We were running late and just missed the burritos, but enjoyed some tasty waffles. We had a chance to catch up with PPK star Isa Chandra Moskowitz. It shocked us all to see Isa unwrap a slice of Kraft cheese and add it to her own burrito. Isa didn’t see the big deal. She explained that the godfather of animal rights, Peter Singer, had convinced her that there’s no harm in eating “only a modicum” of egg or dairy.

    “I’m really OK with animal products, as long as they’re responsibly produced,” explained Isa, “you know – free range, organic. Obviously, the animals need to live a natural life. I’m completely opposed to factory farming.” Disturbingly, she didn’t seem to see a disconnect between this outlook and her career as a vegan cooking icon. “Of course my business and books are still vegan. It’s an important market segment, and I’ve built a strong brand. I won’t be turning my back on the vegan community.”
