Did you see what that guy posted in the comments?



"Fortunately, most of them don't have the energy to comment."



Why is this STILL a popular belief against vegans?! I have yet to see anything to back this up!



(I love the salad shooter joke though.. )

Hey, I've got a list of jokes about <insert minority here>, do you think the paper will print those as well? I got them off a <insert minority here> web-site, so surely it must be okay?

That's why these jokes were printed:



Commons leader Harriet Harman wants to ensure they're "treated fairly".





That will mean an end to wisecracks and gags about vegans....but not quite yet.





Here we pick our top 10 lentil-lover wind-ups before the fun police put a stop to it.







Are you a member of the fun police IS?

Yes, I got this part.

Yes I am. Just try to imagine how this would look like if you exchange "vegan" with "black people", "jews", "ay-rabs", "disabled people" etc. It suddenly isn't very funny, just like vegan jokes aren't funny when they're printed by a major newspaper. Just saying.

I agree with you 100%.



I think its great that the veggies in this thread are having fun with the jokes but I think its one thing for a vegan to tell a vegan joke and another for an omni to tell a vegan joke...

That's awesome! lol



The diarrhea joke did make me laugh out loud, but that's probably just my inner 12yr old boy laughing at that one lol.

lucidaisy 03-10-2010 01:05 PM

LOL- Thanks for sharing!

I agree with that. I'm blonde and if I hear a really good blonde joke, I'll tell it. I've also had minority X friends tell jokes about minority X just in the spirit of having a laugh. And all sorts of comedians have made their careers by poking fun at themselves.

vegkid 03-10-2010 03:34 PM

I personally think some of these are hilarious. She was protesting for the chicken, man! XD

But I agree, omnis telling these jokes would just be offensive. If one of my friends told me a joke like some of these, I'd be offended, but as a vegan I would tell these.

Medesha 03-10-2010 04:42 PM

For some reason the debate about the appropriate of vegan jokes told by vegans or non-vegans made me think of the Onion's "That's Not Funny; My Brother Died That Way" article. Linky.

Semicharmed 03-10-2010 05:44 PM

^Heh.



It reminded me of Isaac Hayes leaving South Park.
