Avast, thar be sarcasm ahead! Don’t get us wrong, it’s the kind of sarcasm that we kind of love, like, a lot. Still, for those that find a bit of snark mixed in with truth, it can be a might unsettling. Ye be warned…no, we’re not sure why we went full pirate all of a sudden.
If you like cartoons (and who doesn’t), especially the kind of cartoons that make you think, then Skool of Vegan is the place for you. The Facebook community (which can also be found on Twitter) features child-like drawings with thought provoking messages to make people take a look at their eating habits and thoughts about where food comes from in a critical way. They look like the musings of a kid sitting in algebra class, doodling their thoughts instead of finding the value of y.
The mission statement on their page reads, “Because making the connection is child’s play,” so we’d say mission accomplished. The juxtaposition of the innocent looking drawings paired with kick-in-your-gut truthfulness is unsettling to say the least, which is obviously the point. Like it or not, there’s a large disconnect between how animals who’re considered food are treated versus animals who’re considered pets and how animal-based foods get onto our plates. Skool of Vegan lays those attitudes out in simplistic, sometimes darkly humorous ways. We’ve compiled just a few for you to take a look at. Class is in session!
