Veggies Are Pissed!

If anything, at least Herman Cain provides fodder for Stephen Colbert and John Stewart. His latest juvenile and paranoid comments involve the relative masculinity of veggie vs. meat pizza. The IP ain’t no sweat-lodging, New Aging vegematerian, but to diss veggie pizzas as being “sissy” pretty much sums up the level of political rhetoric we have come to associate with Cain. That he has any traction at all begs incredulity.*

“A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.”

*Actually, if you read the GQ interview, you get a feel for why people like him.  He’s the anti-politician, the man’s man.   And he CAN be funny, when he is not bigoted and homophobic and hyper-heterosexualist.   For better and for worse, he uses a more honest language than the other candidates…that’s why people like him (or don’t; or both).


Delta State’s Fighting Okra are fighting mad at Cain!


It is reported that the grain community is considering joining the veggies.


Anywaze, here is a 60s chestnut that puts things in perspective.   Blog at ya later.

  1. sissy

  2. Mothers of Invention… I saw them in person in 1968, when they were more jazzy, rather than novelty. But I remember hearing “Call Any Vegetable” many times when I was a teenager running around in Boston.
