For many meat-eaters, eating meat can often involve a sort of disconnect — the final product is simply bought in a plastic package at the grocery store, and sometimes not a whole lot of thought goes into the fact that that “ham” is actually a dead pig, that “steak” is part of a dead cow, that hot dog and pepperoni is probably a mix of some dead animals. All sentient beings so many might pet lovingly at a petting zoo or coo at cute images of online. Sounds a whole lot more gory when we consider the truth, doesn’t it?

While eating animals really isn’t a joking matter in many respects, it helps when celebrities explain their own reasons for plant-based ethics. One vegetarian, “Weird Al” Yankovic, recently discussed his own reasons for being veg-inclined in the best way he knows how: comedy. In a recent episode of the web series Doogtoons, Yankovic laid it out plainly — put simply, he made the aforementioned connection so many people might not between animal and plate, and he hasn’t eaten meat since. In a fun, cartoon depiction of this discussion, Yankovic makes it clear: there’s really no mystery about meat and what it really comes from when you think about it!

Smug vegetarians and vegans... keep it real yourself, clowns. Stay clear of nature TV shows that show animals eating other animals!

What a bunch of pathetic weak losers you are. Don\'t blame the tofu, blame the greenie propaganda and your own malnourished pathetic brain.
