Wow, two days and two rants, I am on a roll!!
SO, I was getting a salad today at the student union, and in the salad bar, among the usual vegetables and toppings and whatnot, there is some shredded ham and cheddar cheese. Not looking to raise the cholesterol bar too high, so I pass onto what looks like fried chicken, then I think about why I passed on the ham and cheese, so I keep going, but glance up. Guess what the label was? VEGETARIAN MEAT. Thats right, let me repeat that VEGETARIAN MEAT. Now, I would like to believe that in this land of dieters and health nuts (me being one) that we could just accept that our lifestyles demand that we give up some types of food! I guess I was wrong, because not only do we have low carb Coke and Pepsi, there is also low carb bread, sugar, candy, chocolate and low carb energy bars, and now for the vegetarian group VEGETARIAN MEAT. I was so pissed off after seeing that I lost my hunger and didn't finish making my salad. What the hell is wrong with us that we have become selfish enough to require that a company makes VEGETARIAN MEAT. What was the thought process? I can picture it now:
Executive: Lets prove what we can do with soy.
Pion: I think we can make something look and taste like fried chicken.
Executive: Perfect! Lets make a product that allows vegetarians to eat meat, but not actually be eating meat, because they don't want anything to do with meat! PERFECT!
Pion: I'll get right on it sir!(smootches executives ass)
Ranting lunatic, over and out!
