Hello, friends! It's WTF Wednesday!
So I was reading the Facebook this week (this is how my parents refer to websites, by the way. They put a “the” in front of everything and say adorable things like “Hey Mark, you need cheap plane tickets? Did you look on the Twitter? I hear this where good deals are!”) and my friend Stephanie had this amazing article about a baby deer that is wearing a fucking...
NYT, you are killing me with this trash!
Good god this is some crap! I kind of don’t even want to link it because it’s so bad but if you can stomach it, read this piece by Carol Kaesuk Yoon about how plants have feelings. Do they just let anyone write for the New York Times now? Because I think my dog is more eloquent than Yoon. In fact, NYT should hire Figaro because homeboy needs to start pulling his weight around here. I...

Pigeon emergency in the Bay Area!
Mickacoo, which is already filled to the brim with foster pigeons, is looking to re-home 100 pigeons that were abandoned by the owner of Lucky Dog Pet Shop in Berkeley. ON TOP OF THAT they are trying to help the survivors of more than 60 king pigeons that were “released” at a Milpitas business for good luck. King pigeons are domestic and can’t survive in the wild!

The Vegansaurus Diet: Momzilla!
Welcome back to the Vegansaurus Diet! This week features Louzilla’s mom, who “decided to try to eat vegan for a week while [Louzilla’s] dad was off visiting his family in Arizona. She didn’t end up doing it 100, but maybe something like 90, which is still really awesome!” It is awesome; good job, -zillas! What does a meat-loving omnivore eat when she tries out veganism for...

Here are the details! It’s on internet activism and veganism and being rad. Plus, it’s with the hilarious, rad, and amazing Lazy Smurf’s Guide to Life (she made that rad graphic of our dino chasing after her smurf’s cupcake. That sounded sexual?

(Yet another) New drug-resistant E. coli!
Well, it won’t affect us vegans just yet, but I’m sure it’ll make its way to us somehow. Thanks, meat mouths! From the Wired article: Chickens, chicken meat and humans in the Netherlands are carrying identical, highly drug-resistant E. coli—resistance that is apparently moving from poultry raised with antibiotics, to humans, via food. I’d like to write more about how...
