I saw that, it's a great video. Thanks for sharing.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Some of the comments on The Daily Show's Facebook page are terrible. I swear, I don't understand why vegans are the ones with a reputation for self-righteousness when omnivores swarm every vegan-friendly post with rude and thoughtless comments.

I love Gene Baur. I truly believe that by making plant based living a practical, accessible thing is the best solution.
I would love to try a vegan corned beef! Couldn't believe he had to mention that, that being the memory of meat I'd love to replicate both taste and texture.

Jon Stewart-baffles me so completely when really intelligent people, fully aware of reality,. still can't get over themselves enough to give up eating animals. Some things I just have to let go of

This is such amazing exposure!

It is disappointing Jon Stewart isn't a vegetarian but it seems like he's leaning that way, maybe stuff like this will help push him in the right direction.

Our existence offends their delicate sensibilities.

They should probably eat some more veggies.

I cant stand reading comments from ignorant omnivores! I just try to focus on the growing population that is eating less and less animal products otherwise I will just get into a huge depression

Agreed! "Cognitive dissonance" is the term, I believe...
