Could this guy be the baddest-ass vegan of them all? His shirt makes a lesser claim (“I am a vegan badass”) that we can certainly all get behind just by looking at him. But I’d say moving 1,100 pounds by hanging them off your neck puts him squarely in the running for MOST badass.
According to the Toronto Star, one Mr. Patrik Baboumian—a German, and a “strongman”, which is apparently a term of art and not just an obvious statement—performed this feat at Toronto’s veg fest. It might be a world record—in a category he just invented.
Anyway, put this in your brain-file of examples of vegans you can use to convince your Uncle Mort that we’re not all anemic wusses. Bonus entry: Vegan Serana Williams just won her 5th US Open last Sunday. Also badass.
