So we talked about the prevalence of animal-based idioms in the english language, including some pretty disgusting ones like "more than one way to skin a cat." What are some fun (or funky) animal-friendly alternatives?<br><br><br><br>
I've got:<br><br><br><br>
go cold turkey --> go cold tofu, or go cold Tofurky<br><br><br><br>
more than one way to skin a cat --> more than one way to peel a potato<br><br><br><br>
a whole different kettle of fish --> ???<br><br><br><br>
beating a dead horse --> ???<br><br><br><br>
kill two birds with one stone --> ???<br><br><br><br>
What else can we veganize? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Haha, I hadn't thought of that one! "Box of nutritional yeast flakes" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, though, does it? Maybe we need to tighten that baby up. How about...<br><br><br><br>
You can't make a hemp purse out of a cloud ear (mushroom)?<br><br><br><br>
BTW, I had to sit down and watch <i>Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead</i> after reading your sig yesterday. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> What a great movie.

How about you can't make a hemp purse out of an ear of corn?<br><br><br><br>
Nah, I think the nutritional yeast flakes version is punchier. Plus I tried to make a purse out of a box of nutritional yeast once, and let me just say that my wife wasn't exactly thrilled come Christmas morning.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Oh, here's another crappy one:<br><br><br><br>
kill two birds with one stone > combine two proteins in one meal<br><br><br><br>
Yeah. Lame. This game is harder than I thought.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
How about:<br><br><br><br>
Bleed like a stuck pig > bleed like a stuck Ted Nugent<br><br><br><br>
No?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
You catch more B12 with supplements than vinegar?<br><br><br><br>
Maybe not eh?<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Yeah, sorry. I'm tapped out dude.<br><br><br><br>
Cheers!<br><br>

A lawyer friend of mine was talking about being a sole practicioner, and he described it as being an "eat what you kill" lifestyle. I said, "I'm a vegetarian, can eat what I gather?"<br><br><br><br>
He responded with the old "vegetarians still kill plants" line, so I got the opportunity to explain the concept of fruitarianism to him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> But I'm not a fruitarian, so I guess I am still eating what I kill. :-|
