"Having friends over for dinner and you’re worried about what to cook because you don’t know if they’re vegan? Don’t worry. They’ll tell you all about it."
More vegetables are picked to feed animals raised for consumption than for people to eat vegetables. And then there’s the people who work in slaughter houses. Childish logic is to come to a conclusion without digging even one step further. And last I checked people can eat vegetables and care that they’re picked by immigrants with poor working conditions. Next you’ll tell me we wouldn’t have enough room to grow enough food if everyone were vegan, because you don’t know how much land is used to grow food to feed your food.
Oh, and if you are having someone over for dinner they will tell you they’re vegan just like if you served green beans and someone doesn’t like green beans. How good of a friend are you if you don’t even know if your friend is vegan? That’s a pretty big part of someone’s life.

why test on animals when there are prisons full of rapists
because the prisons aren’t actually full of rapists
the rapists run free and the prisons are full of people charged with weed possession
Plus ethics morals and all that jazz….
but really, you still don’t need to test on animals. just don’t test on prisoners either.

"Yes, a liberal Republican. What happened to them? They got run out of your party. What did liberals do that was so offensive to the Republican party? I’ll tell you what they did. Liberals got women the right to vote. Liberals got African-Americans the right to vote. Liberals created social security and lifted millions of elderly people out of poverty. Liberals ended segregation. Liberals passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, Liberals created Medicare. Liberals passed the Clean Air Act, and the Clean Water Act. What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those programs. Every one. So when you try to hurl the word ‘liberal’ at my feet, as if it were dirty, something to run away from, something that I should be ashamed of, it won’t work, Senator, because I will pick up that label and wear it as a badge of honor."

Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
Note how Weird Al doesn’t make songs mocking fat people anymore either. It’s almost like people are capable of learning and changing their behavior for the better.
I don’t always say the right thing. I don’t expect everyone else too, either. But it’s how you react to being called out on your mistakes. Weird Al is the man.
