The Meatocalypse Has Arrived

Published on October 28, 2015

Vegetarians are doing a victory lap after it was announced that hot dogs contain human DNA and all processed meats cause cancer, but Stephen has some bad news for them, too.

    Look, I get it. A lot of vegetarians are smug assholes who I’d like to
    murder as much as the next guy. But I don’t think there is anything wrong
    with questioning the morality of battery cages and gestation crates.

    We vegans and vegetarians should just declare war on meat eaters and get
    this over with.

  • hellsingmongrel 4 years ago

    This cracked me up SO HARD! XD GG, Stephen, GG.

    And to everyone throwing a fit in the comments, he wasn’t making fun of ALL
    vegans/vegetarians, he was making fun of the dipshits who point out how
    much better they are then you because they don’t eat meat, like their shit
    suddenly doesn’t stink. Meat eaters generally don’t give a shit what other
    people eat. It’s the smug, holier-then-thou attitude that gets thrown our
    way that makes us want to eat a bacon cheeseburger with double meat and
    three times the bacon while making you watch us just to spite you.

    Also, a lot of us DO know where our food comes from. I grew up in farm
    country. I made friends with goats and cows and horses and piggles. I and
    many people like me care about how our food is treated before it lands on
    our plate. When I can, I get humanely-raised meat and eggs and I know a lot
    of other people do, too.

    Im vegan and i found this funny but ive been telling everyone even my dumb
    vegan friends that they should eat raw and not that shitty processed food.
    I have all the science behind me.

    “When you see your fellow human being suffering it’s funny, but heaven
    forbid I eat a shrimp”

    I liked that line a lot. It feels like sometimes vegans forget that people
    matter as well as animals.

    However, I hate that having empathy for animals seems like just a big joke
    to everyone. The smug vegan stereotype is pretty universally accepted by
    everyone who isn’t one, but if you even jusgt happen to mention that you
    don’t eat meat people get defensive as fuck and just jump down your throat
    and assume you’re smug. I wonder if it’s because they feel a little guilt
    deep down.

    Yet again, people rely more on the sensationalist news and less on the
    actual research and science that they butcher nearly every time. Nobody
    looks into things before accepting them.

    Society fails at science. Can’t even google things. No wonder people drink
    fucking wheat grass.

    I’m with Stephen. Hell no am I going to stop eating red meat or processed

    …I’m also allergic to legumes and poultry (and seafood half the time,
    plus a lot of other things) so most of my other protein options aren’t even
    options for me. Oh well…guess I’ll just have to eat all the bacon for you
    guys. ¯*(ツ)*/¯

    Fuck vegetarians. Thanks alot for eating all of those plants that produce
    oxygen so that all the things on the earth can survive. Just because they
    can’t move or show any emotion, plants are alive too. Get off your moral
    high horse, you planet murderers.

    Actually, putting it in the same category as cigarettes and asbestos just
    means that the WHO is *as certain* that it has a chance of causing cancer
    as the other two. Cigarettes increase your chances of getting lung cancer
    by 2500%. Bacon, on the other hand, only increases your chance of colon
    cancer by 18%. Eighteen! That increases your lifetime chance of getting
    colorectal cancer from 5% to 6%.

    WHO is the same geniuses who are trying to treat vaping like it’s just the
    same as smoking, ticking off those smokers who have successfully escaped
    tobacco.Now, attacking bacon, they will tick off everybody but anemic
    vegans.Open up your eyes, folks. This is about controlling us, NOT our
    health. Stand together and reject the nannies.

  • amadcarrot 4 years ago

    Sick fucks. Talk about cognitive dissonance. Smoking dead fresh of a once
    living being would be considered the act of a serial killer if it were your
    own species but is comedy here

    Report is vague though, they say it COULD cause cancer and they say

    Is it me or does everyone forget that most cancer causing substances are
    also vegan. Cigs, Edsbestos, Refined Sugar… this is the first time for
    meat to be even mentioned and the fact that meat MAY cause cancer is just a
    sad excuse for already cancerous vegans to get uppity because they have the
    money from not eating meat to pay for their cancer treatments… This last
    part is a joke and I’m not trying to be mean to cancer patients… by
    calling them vegan.

    I’m starting to think Colbert is getting some extra money from the meat
    industry that pays for his commercials. Colbert is funny but he’s a a sold
    out ignorant fool! I hope he gets cancer just so he opens his eyes and
    changes his viewpoint on meat. He’s influencing a lot of people to be
    ignorant a holes

    cancer is largely caused by genetics and obesity. but they won’t talk about
    this because it’s politically incorrect. fact is majority of people never
    get cancer. but policy these days always dictated to cater to the loudest

    i think it’s sad that science says meat causes cancer and then everyone who
    eats meat talks shit to vegetarians. does this mean that the vegetarians
    are right and everyone else is wrong? if you are wrong you are wrong, don’t
    double down on it and show everyone how stupid you are by telling everyone
    that you don’t care and will still eat it until you die of cancer all
    early, my brother died of cancer at 24 and he ate whatever he wanted and i
    did my research on cancer and it makes me afraid to eat meat, cause its
    fucking bad for you!!!!!!!!!

    The only good enough reason to stop eating meat is global warming. That’s
    the leading cause and we need to reduce our consumption, that’s all. But
    well, most people don’t care about the planet anyway and there are some
    idiots who even doubt global warming. I’ll be childless happily watching
    the childs of these bacon lovers drown :)

  • Savvy Marino 4 years ago

    I would just like to point out that cured meats and poultry are a HAZARD
    not a RISK meaning that it is not the same likelihood as smoking or
    asbestos. What it means is that EXCESS consumption of it (I’m talking meat
    as like 90% of your diet here) is correlated with an increase in cancer.
    While smoking is a CAUSATION of an increase in cancer and therefor a RISK.
    Swimming in the ocean is a HAZARD because there could be sharks around.
    Swimming in a shark tank is a RISK.
