Swine Flu Vaccine Plot Against Vegans

    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    Predictions of a pandemic continue. The airwaves blast warnings: "Protect yourself! get the swine flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available."

    The problem is, the vaccine is grown in EGGS. And as we know vegans do not eat any meat or animal by-products. This includes EGGS.

    So the message to vegans is, tough luck. You don't matter. We don't care if you catch the swine flu and die.

    I don't know who, but someone (or something) BIG is behind this diabolical plot against vegans. Why would an entire class of citizens be excluded from life-saving innoculation? What have vegans done to deserve such a callous fate?

    If you share my outrage or have any further information about the parties responsible for this plot, please comment here.

      I'm assuming you're being satirical.  All flu vaccines are based on eggs, always have been.  That's why people who may be allergic to chickens or eggs can't have the vaccine, either.  If they could work out a way not to use eggs, they would.

        They do use cell based vaccines, as opposed to egg vacines (for some conditions) but you would need to goggle this.

      I think this whole thing is over hyped. The common flu kills a bunch of people a year but it is common so it is no big deal.

      LOL, @ 1rohner, that was funny.  but on a serious note I use to go to a  strict vegan club (they were very friendly and did not mind if you didn't follow there exact rules, but were trying this new vegan diet out) once a month and the food was rather good, and creative. We all had to bring a dish, and it could not include oil of any kind, no sugar, except stevia or some other natural kind of sugar, no white or brown flour (only oat barley, spelt etc and I can't remember all the guide lines but lets just say it was stripped of every thing good. I made a sweet potato casserole and used mashed bananas, and walnuts, and oatmeal on top, and it was good. Not real real good, but I could have ate it again if I had to. But thank goodness, I like my meat.

    Well, it could be worse. It could be swine. And that would prohibit Jews and Muslims too. MM dear, you don't need to eat it ya know? LOL
    On another note, maybe we could have them use fish eggs.

    Take the vaccine.  The Swine Flu can be deadly.  Live tomorrow and you can forgive yourself for taking the vaccine.  Think of it this way, the eggs aren't fertilized.  So, you are not killing a baby chicken.

    Well just to be clear (for those who may have thought my rant serious) I am not a vegan myself. Good Lord. I couldn't go without meat for a few days, but not without animal by-products!!

    I just thought it would be fun to stir up some controversy and see if I could get anyone arguing that vegans are scumbags and deserve to die. Or maybe get some PETA activists on here rising to my defense!

    Oh well.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I should have known there was a key REPUBLICAN behind this. Rumsfeld. Wow. I would have guessed Cheney.

    LOL, Manlypoetryman! You'd better warn your little buddy there. I bet he's a vegan and so will not be able to get the vaccine. I worry that he may hobnob with the piggies on the barn and get himself infected!
    But at least he seems happy today. And for that, I am glad:-). MM
