Hi everyone!<br>
I'm a vegan from New Zealand (nearly a whole year now!) and apparently one of those "rare" people who transitioned straight from eating meat and milk and cheese to vegan overnight.<br>
I'll probably be more of a lurker for the moment as this forum is so big!!<br>
Looking forward to meeting you all and reading the many many topics, so far everything I've seen is very welcoming and friendly and open (except for the odd troll I've seen every now and then <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">)<br>
Thanks!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sheep.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sheep:"> <-- awesome sheep!!

Random question, does anyone else get masses of adverts for meat products in their area when on this forum? I swear that every second advert I see on here is for free range or happy meat! Currently I've got one for "best cut" New Zealand lamb directly below this reply box....I mean, it's kinda funny because it's on a veggie/vegan forum so it's a bit of a waste of advertising for them, but the sheer quantity makes me wonder if it's on purpose? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

I get that occasionally. The ads are generated by words in the text, and I'd imagine it can't tell the difference between "Eww meat! Yuck!" and "I wanna have sex with a bloody steak! Woo Doggie, Cletus!"<br><br>
Welcome btw. I'm a shark! We'd better watch out, or some low budget film-makers will fuse us together with ghastly experiments, and then force us to star in a sequel to Dinoshark. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

That's hilarious!! I know someone who'd probably have sex with a bloody steak :S And now when I go onto the main Veggieboards page, it gives me loads of links for dating sites, I feel like it's trying to tell me something....<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

If it were a low budget one I bet instead of fusing us together, they'd get a dinosaur costume and a shark costume and attach the top of one to the bottom of the other :p<br>
Is there actually a film called Dinoshark? I can't decide if that sounds hilarious or terrifying...
