Check the neck, I don’t eat meat…
Blog Guy, I know you love animals.
I’m thinking of becoming vegan. I’ve read that Ellen Degeneres and her spouse Portia de Rossi are both vegans. Is that right?
I don’t believe so. Look at their necks.
Excuse me? Their necks?
Yes. You can clearly see they don’t have VEGAN tattooed on their necks, which of course is how you normally spot a vegan. Like this guy on the right. Now HE’S a vegan.
See, when you walk around town and spot folks in neckscarves or turtleneck sweaters, you should presume they are usually secret vegans. There are lots of them.
I had no idea. This is all new to me. So like, why do people become vegans instead of vegetarians?
Simple. The short five-letter tattoo is much less painful.
