Obvious Vegan Statement of the Week: Eggs Are Gross

Filed under: Farmed Animals Media

I don’t like eggs. I don’t miss them. I don’t think about them. I don’t lay them. Perhaps the only time they enter my brain is when I visit my local bodega and the wafting smell of a frying egg send me on a trip to gag city – other than that they’re out of sight and out of mind. (Or, y’know, that Jason Mraz thing)

But one (vegan or otherwise) can’t help but be struck by what’s going on with the latest egg recall. The issues surrounding this recall are deeply woven and highlight the abject failure of the industry as a whole. It’s scary stuff.

The Daily Beast has an informative (quick) post about both the recall and reasons why egg suckers would be wise to remain concerned. I suggest you forward it to the eggheads in your life.

You know what really gets me? That someone at sometime in history saw the egg fall out of a chicken’s butt and thought it would make a great meal…

    I support your views but your writing will never convince a non-vegan soul of anything. Change the rhetoric if you want to expand your following.

    I support your view that i will never convince a non-vegan soul of anything. I do not support that you drank the fizzy lifting drink…

    I so totally agree with you! I’ve always wondered how someone, someday, decided to eat that… Simply disgusting!

    Maybe they saw the egg before they saw the chicken? Thanks for sharing that Daily Beast piece – I encourage to send THAT to non-vegan friends. Scary stuff.

    Nick: Luckily Rudy is writing on a blog by and for vegans. What omnivores think isn’t the point here.
