Yo Washington state! Your turn to ban battery cages! »
In more excellent news, the awesome Humane Society of the United States and the awesome Farm Sanctuary have introduced a ballot initiative in Washington state that will ban battery cages and the sale of battery eggs by 2018. Tell everyone you know in Washington State what’s up and that they need to get involved so we can get those torture-devices abolished pronto!
End goal: Adorable chickens will run free and I will be allowed to cuddle all of them. JOKE! But really, what a world that would be.

The Food Network is bringing it lately with the vegans. The delightful Chloe Coscarelli won an episode of Cupcake Wars; they’re doing their first-ever veg special; AND NOW they’ve got a vegan in the running for most beloved food truck in America! The vegan food truck in question is Homegrown Smoker, a family-owned vegan BBQ truck (JUST LOOK AT THE FAMILY CUTENESS).
Go to Food Network’s fucked-up site* and VOTE for vegans! Besides, their food looks to be fucking amazing (OMG "Oceanic Tofu Fillet, nori breaded and golden fried. On a grilled bun with tartar, slaw, pickles & lemon with a side of russet fries" OMG) and they’ve got Isa Chandra Moskowitz's vote so heeeeey, do it up!
This whole post was brought to you by a simple stalking of Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s twitter feed. If you do not follow her, you do now.
*Seriously, they have more money than God and they can’t get this to look nice or run properly? They need to dock Sandra Lee’s pay (one less tequila slammer/Hungry Man dinner ain’t gonna kill her!) and use a little of those funds to create a website that doesn’t make me want to simultaneously murder and cry.

I think that’s what’s happening, anyway. A vegan show on network television (is Oprah’s new station considered network television!? I do not know!). That’s pretty rad so GO VOTE. You don’t even have to register, you just have to click a button. And you can do it as many times as you want so if you’re unemployed, MAKE IT HAPN, CAPN.
In crappier news, Justin made a pretty great video about veganizing classic grill recipes and it was rejected because he had his friends in it? Although it doesn’t say in the rules that you shouldn’t have friends? What gives, Ope? Maybe she hates people with friends because it’s hard to maintain REAL and TRUE friendships when you’re unsure if people love you or your billions and billions of dollars (it’s the billions and billions of dollars TRUST NO ONE, OPE!!). I cannot imagine the Oprah that I know and love (who I am sure is going through each video herself because SHE CARES ABOUT US) rejecting something for such a ridiculous reason. Anyway, go watch and tell us what you think!
