I’ve always had a fondness for the old school “meat is murder” slogan. It inspired my own “don’t eat death,” which I favor these days for its directness and and because I came up with it. I just came across this blog post about MiM, however (I think I found it through Vegans of Color?). Wow – I had to read it, like, three times before I even understood what she was talking about – my brain is mad atrophied, yo. While I’m off picking blackberries and thinking about chocolate and taking pictures of cupcakes, it’s great that someone is using their noodle.
I finally get the point (“murder” refers to unlawful killing), and while I think it’s an interesting one and makes sense if you’re a super stickler, I’m not totally convinced.
However, speaking of meat, did you know that I sell a very cute set of three vegan propaganda pins? I mentioned it a while ago, but they are still hanging around, so I thought I’d bring it up again.
They are sold in a set of 3 different pins:
one 1.25″ “Don’t eat death” pin with a lovely drawing of a fish:
one 1″ “cows died for your sins” pin with a picture of a hamburger in the background (above).
one 1″ “don’t eat death” pin with a lovely drawing of a spoon and fork (those weird squiggly lines aren’t as visible on the pin as they are in this image!)
Each one is affixed to a page from a weird old book called “Races of England” that I thought deserved to be torn up, and comes in a jaunty plastic bag. The pins are only $3 for a set of 3 (plus $2 postage!)!
I only have a few more sets, so why don’t you buy some so I can sell out and have an excuse to make up some more? It’s fun. Click here to be taken to PayPal to buy them.
