***Contest closed! But you can still buy tickets and go AND YOU SHOULD!***
You totally want to meet Jennifer Coolidge, right? Because she’s the baddest beeyatch on earth and her performance in Best in Show is maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to the motion picture industry. Seriously, during the impending End of Days, if I’m charged with grabbing a few items of cultural significance to preserve for future generations, you better watch the fuck out because racist pieces of shit like Breakfast at Tiffany’s will go down in flames. I’ll be on an inflatable dingy, floating in the debris of our trashed civilization, clutching copies of Cabin Boy, Billy Madison, and Best in Show. BELIEVE IT.
Here’s your chance to meet Jennifer Coolidge at a swanky-swank party for Farm Sanctuary! Not only will you meet Coolidge, you’ll rub elbows with Moby (most famous famous vegan),
John Salley (he plays sports!), Bob Harper (will he make you do push-ups to earn a second serving of fruit?), and our hero, Farm Sanctuary Founder and President Gene Baur. I mean, we really love Gene Baur. Like a lot. Not only is he wildly attractive, he’s a superhero to the animals, and is very nice to look at.
The reason you’d be hanging out with famous people is that it’s Farm Sanctuary’s 25th year in operation (SO COOL) and they’re celebrating with two mega galas, one in NYC and one in Los Angeles, and you’ll be attending the launch party to get people all hella excited. Fun, right? Now, you might be saying, “Vegansaurus, you are on drugs (true), how can someone so lowly as myself possibly bump uglies (that means “meet,” right?) with the likes of Jennifer Coolidge and Moby?” Well, here’s how!
Vegansaurus is lucky enough to have two tickets to giveaway to the 25th Anniversary Gala launch party this Saturday, Apr. 23, in Los Angeles (at a private home in the Hollywood Hills. FANCY!). That’s right, the pink dino is moving up in the world and we’re taking you with us! Or we’re sending you in our place because we’re too poor to get to L.A.! To win a ticket for you and a friend (THAT’S TWO TICKETS), let us know which Farm Sanctuary animal you most want to adopt. You can just tell us that you love pigs the most because they’re great or you can play favorites and give us the name of the Farm Sanctuary animal you love the most.
Also, while you’re at it, you should totally actually adopt one! It feels really good to give money to such an awesome organization and you can display their picture on your fridge and in your wallet and when your mom bitches at you, “Why don’t you have kids! You’re so old! And such a disappointment!” you can be like, “WELL, ACTUALLY…”
We’ll randomly pick a winner on Thursday afternoon, so the rest of you will have a chance to buy tickets and go. Seriously, only $100 for an evening of fancy fun, delicious vegan food and drink, and MEETING AND POSSIBLY MARRYING JENNIFER COOLIDGE. All that and the money goes to an amazing cause! You know you were gonna give them $100 anyway, might as well get some booze out of it!
Bob Harper serves up vegan dinner on “The Biggest Loser” »
Out of all the reality shows I watch, admitting that I actually watched two hours of weight-loss porn The Biggest Loser has been the hardest one to own up to. Not even my summer obsession with Big Brother summoned the amount of shame I currently feel.
Amidst all the Jillian Michaels yelling and nonstop crying and “emotional breakthroughs,” trainer Bob Harper took several of the contestants to his home and served them a lovely vegan meal on last night’s episode, cooked by a “good friend” of his. The contestants didn’t appear to complain too much; in fact they all talked about how much they loved the color of the food. I didn’t get a chance to write down what Bob served, but if you did, please leave it in the comments!
Bob went vegan this year in an effort to lower his cholesterol. The actual diet contestants eat on The Biggest Loser isn’t mentioned very often, except when it’s to shill for a brand. He talks a bit about vegan eating in the following video from his website.

It should go without saying that we aren’t in any way advocating what TBL does to its contestants. Vegansaurus remains a no-diet zone!
