Pressing non-questions, and solicited, non-professional opinions

There is bacon and i want some? there is some bacon in the kitchen.

Answer 1

Well it all depends on the value of your convictions; if you eat it, will you be able to face yourself tomorrow without regrets? Answer 2

We cannot help you with your ethical issues. If the decision is to have any rectitude it must come from you alone. Answer 3

Look at pictures of pigs. Do you really want to eat them?

A note for you, Dear Reader: Adhering to the O,DSGN-Free,V-Friendly diet is a totally rewarding lifestyle. Besides never having any energy, no one will meet you for lunch, invite you over for dinner parties or share a tub of unbuttered popcorn with you at the movie theater. Instead, you can devote yourself to chewing celery, making sunflower seed burgers and having excessive diarrhea. Live it up— alone — because no one will stop by to dig through your pantry. If you find that you’ve been abandoned by all friends (who blame it on your “unnecessarily dangerous health obsessions”), just move to L.A. and look for anemiclooking celebrity types. They’ll love you for who you are. Whoever needed bacon anyway?

Excuses How to refuse invitations, alienate yourself and lose all of your friends:

Why don’t you come over here. I’ll make raisin salad! I’m detoxing. Drinks at 9? That’s right in the middle of my three-hour toilet date. I can’t make it. You only have tap water, and you know how I feel about that. I’m sorry, I’ve burned through all of my calories for the day. I have to wash my hair.
