I can appreciate satire. Even biting politically-incorrect sarcasm has its place in any dialogue; but these are just sad. Seriously, who wears these things?
Figure A: I kill one cow for every vegan who slights me
Translation: I don’t have anger issues. I’m just edgy dude.
Figure B: The only thing vegans are good for is techno
Translation: I have a tendency to blurt out things that no one gets or finds funny.
Figure C: Vegans can eat my ass
Translation: I have a tendency to hi-five while wearing my hat backwards.
Figure D: Carnivores on Tilt. Herbivores on Wilt.
Translation: I love to use irrelevant uber-hip language like “that’s so Avatar!”
This is just a smattering of what’s out there. As it stands, most anti-vegan shirts are poorly conceived, insecurity-filled ill-witticisms of little to no value. They don’t convey a deep-rooted message or attempt to question a long-held institution – they aren’t even funny. Frankly, they serve no real purpose and probably never will because they are championing the status quo.
Maybe it is just a shirt and it doesn’t require deep thought. But as with any shirt, regardless of the message: in the end you’re the asshole wearing it.
