Food habits and commuting?

Just curious. Trolling welcome.

Well crappity, crap. I can't change the title. Any mods want to change it to "Food habits and commuting"? I'd hate to have to start a new thread once this on gets trashed.

I ate a bug by accident the other day. It was good.

Changed. If you want any other changes, let me know quickly.

P.S. I voted for the last option because you didn't have an option that specifically referred to pasta.

Now my reply makes no sense. You will be receiving a sternly-worded letter from my secretary about this!

Pasta is a vegetable.

Your patience, however, indicates that you should not have chosen #8, though failing to point out the irony of asking a mod for help immediately after bashing them gets you a demerit.

Ha, ha, Mr. Quick Reply!

For those who didn't choose insects, remember where honey comes from.

Apologies for not separating seafood into "scales and swims" vs. everything else, for our Old Testament friends.

I didn't select "insects" - though I eat them occasionally on my rides, it's not on purpose.

I voted for all of them, but mainly because I have this obsession with clicking checkboxes. You should see how many stupid mailing lists I'm signed up for...

Excellent! That's the spirit.** But now that you've ruined my highly scientific poll, I suppose I should call you names and demand that you get out of my thread...

I used to spell my name slightly differently with each sign up, just to see who passed me around to whom. It made me feel...dirty.

**For those who missed the fun, while you were sleeping in America, our friend zorkon started a series of threads about veganism and commuting, each with better and better titles, and each getting zapped by a mod until he finally got himself banned. This being my thread, I declare that only snarky replies are allowed here. I mean it!

Well, honey is an insect product and I like it in my tea on a cold winter evening with some lemon, or on my cereal, pancakes, oatmeal, yoghurt...

I wonder if a mod could add grain to the list? Or get annoyed?

Yep. I've been enjoying the fact that burning over 1000 calories each day from cycling lets me eat whatever crap I want and still wear a size small shirt.

So make that a second vote for "chicken wings and beer"

I clicked everything except mod. The other day I ate a gnat or something because it flew into my mouth. I didn't do it on purpose but it tasted good. Like oranges.

My name is ZORKON Vegan of Vegans: Look on my thread ye Flesh eaters and despair.

What, no category for souls? I'm a devourer of souls, and I demand a soul category! If anyone is wondering, souls taste like chicken with a bit of Mrs. Dash.

Done, guess which. I'm not going to edit OP's poll unless he asks me to. Even then, it's so-so.

There were no little babies in the poll, so I chose the last option.

Isn't honey an insect product?

I eat everything, but I'm not crazy about tomatoes or olives. (I know that's wrong.)

I clicked everything except "Mod" too... mods taste bad. The last one tasted kinda like a Vaseline filled empanada.

Oh wait... I think I may have misunderstood the choice.

Nevermind.
