I thought every minute of the actual was fun, but Houston can't find any humor in abortion, Jessica, bible, rape, or child molestation jokes, lol.

So.....




yeah.




I'm not quite sure what the point of eating simulated meat is, given that it costs more than real meat, as is apparently not as good for you.




But I'm open to suggestions.

Sounded like a good show to me. How is it that people go to a Tosh.0 show, knowing goddamn well what they are about to see, and then get upset when the content offends their delicate sensibilities?

It was fairly clear that many of the people in the audience didn't watch the show.

Joe, first thing is this: fat is not bad. forget any association you have with "fat" the food and "fat" the obese people you disdain. Of course there are exceptions: trans fats and interesterified fats--the latter being the toxic BS produced to allow manufacturers to put "no trans fats!" on their label.

Think olive oil and fish oil. Those are both fat. And they are both good and critical to supporting human life. Your body can't produce essential fatty acids but they are essential.

---

Second thing to note is the allegations on the chicken package.

It's against the law to feed chickens hormones. Period. Advertising it is like putting a sticker on your car that says "I am not murdering anyone"

no antibiotics is good.

vegetarian fed means jack. like cows eating corn instead of grass. meaningless.

plutonium is 100% natural. another BS claim.

no nitrates/nitrites is very good.

USDA Organic: means it has to comply with lots of stuff. this one is legit. I dont see it on the tofurky product probably because it's not up to the minimum % of ingredients to get the seal. hence take it with a grain of salt. sadly the USDA currently exempts hops from the organic requirement because samuel smith's beer lobbied to exclude them because of the limited amount of organic hops available. Wife tells me this is changing though.


back to the sausage wars:
the tofurky looks to have a bazillion carbs in it compared to the meat one. No surprise there as soybeans are pretty carb-heavy. fortunately it's mostly fiber and not mostly sugar. that means your body will pass most of it out the back door.

that said, the chicken feta sausage does look pretty tasty.


and I agree that the fake one appears to be less good for you. I suspect it's kind of like cupcakes. we dont eat them because they're good for us. we eat them because they're tasty. those are vegan cupcakes.

3.Open fuel and spark tables
4.Adjust VE and spark tables to reduce PW at a given throttle position

I'll throw a half-hearted disagreement out there. I agree it doesn't mean much, but there is a small nutritional difference.

no no wait hold on
you misunderstand my analysis!

"vegetarian fed" is meaningless (lets hope they aren't cannibals)

100% grass fed is HUGELY GOOD AND BENEFICIAL!

corn fed (while a plant) is lame.

Vegan cupcakes are VERY good. As good as regular cupcakes. I remember nonvegan foods very well.

No, Tofurky italian sausage is nothing like regular italian sausage. It's not that bad though, especially in a hot dog bun.

Yeah I agree that I am "fixing" 1/7billionth of the problem but I am vegan to please myself. I also give a big pile of money and am leaving a damn big pile to PETA so I can leverage my personal impact on the lives of animals on the planet. Yay. I feel good about myself.

AND I AM NOT INDONESIAN NOR AM I SKINNY. you should feel bad for trolling me

"Ethical vegetarians" **** me off. These are the folks who refrain from eating animals or using animal products because it is morally wrong to so so. To quote ethicalvegetarian.com: "Although ethical vegetarians enjoy the benefits of the healthy diet and lifestyle of vegetarianism, they are not vegetarians because of health reasons: they are vegetarians because they want to minimize cruelty and death in the world. Good health is just a pleasant side-effect."

So, when an ethical vegetarian explains to me why it's wrong to have leather upholstery in my car, or even to drink most commercially-produced wines (because the fining agents used to clarify the wine are derived from animal products), and then they go and eat a slice of bread, that's just utter hypocrisy. If it is morally wrong to kill animals, then the production of bread is tantamount to genocide on a scale unparalleled in all of human history- more yeast are incinerated in a single hour at the baker's oven than the total number of people of all races put to death in all the concentration camps of WWII combined.

In fact, ethical vegetarians are inherently anti-Christian. The production of bread is discussed 361 times in the king James bible. It is practically a metaphor for the entire religion, inasmuch as Christ compares himself to bread, and promotes its ritualistic consumption to his disciples shortly before his execution.

So by their worldview, ethical vegetarians must denounce Christianity (as well as Judaism) as supporting the greatest and most widespread racial holocaust the world has ever known.

Given the present sociopolitical climate in the US, Christianity is very much in vogue right now, and weirdm scary people who denounce it are fit to be ostracised.

Is that really what you want? Do you want to murder baby Jesus? Because every time you refuse to kill and eat an animal, that's exactly what you are doing.

Down with ethical vegetarians.

Well, yes I do believe religion in all forms is for fuckying idiots. Religion is for the weak. And most people are indeed weak. Universal FAIL.

And yes, I do believe that life is life, and in order to live you must kill other life. Blah blah blah.

I agree that any people who rub their fuckying faces in other people's shi are annoying motherfukers. That goes for religious people, aggressive/critical vegetarians/vegans, nationalists, hicks, racists etc.

It was explained to me that Christians (or at least Catholics) believe that the unleavened bread & whine that are taken during communion are literally the body and blood of christ, thats when I started to think...

Your quote here makes me assume you think he went to a Tosh.0 screening or something. Which if my above statement is correct, he did not.

So one must come to the conclusion you did not know that he did stand up, and only had a TV show.
