Guests At A Vegan Cafe Are Assaulted With Chunks Of Meat

The vegan lifestyle is already a difficult one to live as it is. The thought of never eating anything that comes from an animal is quite literally making me sick to my stomach at this very moment. I love beef jerky too much to give it up, sorry I’m not sorry that I’m sorry. Still, that’s one man’s opinion, and that’s where the buck stops. Some people are taking this “kill the vegan” mentality way too far, and it’s beginning to get out of hand.

Georgia, a Middle Eastern country located in the nook between Asia and Europe, is famous for its particular wines and cobblestone streets, but the capital city of Tbilisi seems to be a cultural battleground lately. The Greek Orthodox church continues to ward off forthcoming western values while people more dedicated to love and acceptance (also known, unfortunately, to many people as “western values”) fight the archaic traditions of their culture.

The Kiwi Cafe, a bohemian cafe in Tbilisi, was assaulted over the weekend by a group of more than a dozen men wielding a wide variety of meats, from sausage links dangling from around necks to grilled meat on skewers to handfuls of fried fish, according to the New York Times. After emptying their hands of their ammunition, the men bravely ran away before any authorities could catch and/or identify them.

I’m all for a a few jokes and jabs here and there when it comes to veganism, but acting out like this is sickening. We don’t know why these people choose to be vegan, and it’s none of our god damn business either. That’s a universal right to privacy we were all given. Vegans need not answer to ANYONE for their decisions, period.

Live your life, vegans. You do you.

Take Your Food to bed With These Cuddly Oversized Produce Pillows

carrot_Upload

Yes, that is a giant carrot and yes it is indeed a body pillow. Sure, it’s a little weird but admit it, you’re into it. This Giant Carrot Body Pillow aka “4 Foot Stuffed Carrot for Loneliness” as its creator calls it, is being sold on Etsy by Jumbo Jibbles. Just as the name suggests this gigantic carrot is made for your comfort.

Do you still long for the carrot that got away? Its earthy smell and soft, fluttery leaves? When you were together, you felt so grounded. It was a healthy relationship. But now it is over.

The pillow is made with orange fleece stuffed with polyester fibers and bean bag filler so it’s soft enough to hug while it molds to your body. If you want to tone down the creepy factor that comes with spooning a giant carrot, the pillow can also be used as an Easter prop for an equally giant bunny. From leaf to tip the carrot measures 6 feet tall making it the perfect bedtime buddy.

If veggies aren’t your thing, Jumbo Jibbles also offers oversized fruit pillows including a somewhat questionable looking giant kiwi pillow…I’ll just leave this here:

Spiked Desserts — Kiwi Colada Popsicles

Popsicles are great and all, but when the weather heats up and you’re out and about, sometimes it’s just hard to walk around with both a refreshing drink and a refreshing dessert-on-a-stick. To solve such a problem, we’ve pulled another recipe from Peg Couch‘s recipe book of alcoholic sweets, Spiked Desserts.

So, here’s to summer…and just like the livin’, the recipe couldn’t be easier:

Kiwi Colada Popsicles — The Recipe:

In a small bowl, mix pineapple juice, cream of coconut and coconut rum. Pour into molds, filling halfway. Place two slices of kiwifruit in each mold against opposite sides. Fill with juice mixture and insert sticks between fruit. Freeze 3 hours or until solid.

  • 1 (6 oz.) can pineapple juice
  • 1 T. cream of coconut
  • 2 tsp. coconut rum
  • 1 to 2 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

Tropical Kiwi Strawberry Spring Rolls

Getting tired of those crazy desserts filled with peanut butter, chocolate, and bacon? Let’s cut to something with a bit more of a refreshing aura to it. These Tropical Kiwi Strawberry Spring Rolls taste great, and look even better! A combination of chopped strawberries, yellow bananas, green kiwi, mango matchsticks and fresh mint all rolled up in a white blanket of rice paper!

As if this dessert wasn’t jungle enough, you get to dip the rolls into a Vanilla Lime Honey Dipping Sauce! (Recipe @ HowSweatItIs)

Kiwi Lemon Mousse

A handsomely crafted dessert from our friend Dorothy, combining some cream, lemon curd, kiwi and angel food cake. Light and airy meat dense and rich in this rather sensual dessert, while it seems like it may play a perfect summer-meal pairing, I can definitely see myself indulging in this dish during the upcoming holiday season. Stay hungry!

I’m craving tropical fruits so why not eat these delicious little suckers. They’re green (which most foods that are good for you are) and they’re just plain delicious. A little tart and a lot of sweet, when ripe these fruits make me feel like God. (PicThx CNET)
