Hardened, street-wise New Yorkers start screaming like '50s cartoon housewives and jump on their seats once a rat is spotted in a subway car.

The Typical Vegan Is 30 Feet Tall and Radiates Anti-Gravitons

Actually I found out that the vegans are right. Meat and dairy and eggs ARE cruel. I watched a movie called Earthlings for free online. It was eye opening for me. The vegans are right, and it's a good thing they are a peacefull race.
