friend: watcha eating?
friend: whats that?
me: soy beans
friends friend: eww, your nasty! (nice meeting you too eh-hole)
friend: I didn't know vegetarians couldnt eat beans
friend: didnt you say those were soy beans?
friend: if beans were vegetarian why would you have to eat soy beans instead of regular beans?
me: do you even know what soy is?
friend: its a meat substitute
me: no, actually its a bean plant from asia
friend: so they mash up the soy into little bean shaped things?
me: no, there is a plant called soy, they pick the pods off and they are little beans inside
friend: so why cant you eat regular beans then?
me: soy beans are regular beans, just a different kind
later on, i order some sushi
friends friend: I thought you were a vegetarian
me: i am
friends friend: then why are you eating sushi?
me: many kinds of sushi do not have fish in it.
friend: is it tofu sushi or somthing?
me: well, there some tofu in it
friends friend and friend: eww!
me: what are you ewwing about, between the two of you you hav eaten about 10 pounds worth of sushi in the past ten minuites, hell, the sushi you are eating now has tofu in it, lots of kinds of sushi has tofu in it.
friend's friend: I didn't know this was a vegetarian restraunt, i think im going to be sick
me: this is not a vegegarian restraunt, you just ordered some chicken dish about a minuite ago
friends friend: if its not a vegetarian restraunt than why did they put tofu in the sushi?
me: because thats how they make lots of sushi, they do it in japan like that too
friends friend: i didnt know the japanese were all vegetarians
me: there not
friends friend: then why do they eat tofu?
me: do you even know what tofu is?
friends friend: the stuff vegetarians eat
it only went downhill from that point, but it was amusing at least
