Having been a vegetarian for many years, I can attest that there's not a lot of humor in being one. I remember being nine, stuck on a plane to Europe, and they messed up my pre-ordered vegetarian meal and only had meat available. I was starving by the time we landed! When I was in college, my first roommate would talk about eating her pet cow in front of me just to get me out of the room. (and here I thought I was the wicked witch!)
That's why it's so funny to have a book like Revenge Of The Vegetarian, complete with the Top 10 Reasons to Become A Vegetarian. (#10: Avoid A Serious Injury on Thanksgiving) Forget London, how about a little history on the Vegetarian Olympics? And just in time for election year, you have "Rise of the Vegocrats". Can it get any more right up my alley? You betcha - there's even the Vegetarian Zodiac. Seriously. Even my DH - who would sooner die than give up his beloved bacon - thought this book was hilarious.
Now if you're not a vegetarian, but you have the same off the wall sense of humor as me, you've got to take a peek at this giggle worthy book. And if you're looking for a great gift for a not-so-stuffy vegetarian down the road - hey, the holidays are less than six months away - you're looking at the perfect gift idea right here.
