  1. This is an April Fools post. We flipped the whole site upside down to celebrate, but now it’s right-side-up again. Except for this post, which we’re leaving upside-down.

    We’re having some trouble with our site layout today. We’ve contacted our ISP to see if they know what might have changed and why, but meanwhile we’re pulling out our hair trying to track down the root of the problem. If anyone can help point us in the right direction, please leave a comment! Thanks from Team SuperVegan.

  2. Myq Kaplan's Vegan Mind Meld

    Myq Kaplan’s Vegan Mind Meld

    Ever heard of that NBC show, Last Comic Standing? Tonight the top 10 finalists are up for a vote, including Myq Kaplan (pronounced like “Mike Kaplan”) a Boston & NYC-based comedian and proud vegan. Myq has been vegan for about 7-8 years and was a vegetarian for 4-5 years before that. In April, he released his first comedy CD Vegan Mind Meld.
    Last Comic Standing airs tonight at 9pm EST on channel 4 and after he performs a phone number and weblink will be posted on air to direct folks to vote from 10pm-midnight tonight. He’s going to post the toll free number to his Facebook and Twitter pages.

    This is a great opportunity to keep him on the air and bring a humorous vegan to the masses.

  3. I don’t have time to write much (any) commentary, but yay for The Onion! They’re really coming out with a lot of hard-hitting animal stuff lately, with this and the Horse Beating thing. (And maybe some others I’m forgetting? Please comment if you have more.)

    Go read the whole article “Children Of All Ages Delighted By Enslavement Of Topsy The Elephant” and check out Circuses.com for more serious follow-up reading.

    Topsy also delighted the audience after the trainer repeatedly thrust a hooked rod into his skin, causing the miserable animal to lift one leg and his trunk to simulate waving.

    “Aww…” said the assembled circus-goers, who were taken by the cuteness of the barbaric spectacle.

    Branden Helger, 9, said Topsy was his favorite performer at Ringling Bros. because the elephant knew how to do neat tricks like pretending to limp. The third-grader also excitedly pointed out the “cool necklace” clamped on the animal’s foot.

    Topsy and the other elephant performers, who are separated from each other at all times, preventing the socialization that’s so crucial to their well-being, received a standing ovation from the crowd when they marched into the center ring, nervously rocking back and forth.

    “Look, they’re dancing,” said 5-year-old Jonah Meeks, mistaking the elephants’ constant swaying for something that wasn’t a maladaptive behavior caused by serious psychological trauma. “I can dance like an elephant, too. Look at me!”

  4. Veganism is Serious Business

    SuperVegan’s new slogan

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

    Today, SuperVegan blogger “Brownbird” Rudy “Relic” posted an excerpt from SuperVegan’s upcoming interview in Time Out New York. In it, Rudy complains about the “animal rights BS” that pervades the vegan community. We want to assure our readers that this interview was done without SuperVegan’s knowledge or permission, and that we don’t approve of anything contained within it. (Also, we know that honey isn’t vegan.)

    We’ve read your angry emails and comments, and we want you to know that we understand and agree. To that end, we are using this post to publicly announce that “Brownbird” Rudy “Relic” will no longer be writing for SuperVegan. We are simply fed up with his incessantly frivolous blog posts, not to mention his obscenely unhealthy artery-clogging recipes. And we’re pretty sure that whatever gunk he puts in his hair can’t be vegan.

    Furthermore, we recognize that Rudy isn’t the only culprit, and that this culture of frivolity has degraded SuperVegan for years. Therefore, within the coming weeks, we will be conducting training sessions with the rest of our staff, under the leadership of noted activist Bevin Cass-Campbell. Hopefully most of our bloggers can adapt, but we won’t rule out replacing them with writers who focus on serious issues. Veganism isn’t supposed to be fun. Animals are fucking dying out there and humor has no place in helping us cope with that.
