“LEGEN – wait for it – DARY”

with one comment

Along with “Suit Up”, this was one of Barney’s favourite phrases in the American sitcom, How I Met Your Mother.

I can see Barney doing the following – or maybe this guy was a fan of the character.

It’s the ice cream cone licking of those last, juicy bits of sauce that’s the killer blow here.

Now she must learn how to get that food!

One of the great things about the new media world is that when your kids start talking about “channels” they’re not talking about broadcast, cable or satellite TV.

No, they’re talking about YouTube, Vimeo and other sources of video entertainment.

One such channel recently in other news was Alyse Parker, with 730,000 subscribers watching her advocate for many things, but especially Veganism.

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals.

So far, so standard. Except that something awful has happened to Alyse:

I Tried The CARNIVORE DIET For 30 Days (ex Vegan)

“I swallowed my pride and decided I’d give it a shot,” she continued. “Full-on carnivore. I woke up the next morning feeling more mentally clear, focused, wholesome, and healthy than I had felt in years.”

No? Really?

Making it even worse is the following information on her YouTube clip:

This video was sponsored by ButcherBox ~ a company focused on making sustainable, grass fed meat available to more people around the world.

Ahem! Alyse. Just thought you should know that I live in a nation where almost all the meat comes from grass-fed animals. Looking for New Zealand promos on your site soon, NZ Meat Board?

You’re welcome. Now admittedly Alyse has some other themes that she’s pushed which reveal a certain …. trait:

  • Why I don’t shower
  • How I stay confident with body hair
  • The dreads are gone

But naturally it’s the meat one that has not gone down with her fans too well:

 “If you had to kill every animal you ate in this video… We all know you would go back to vegan immediately.

Oh I wouldn’t bet on that! And especially now that Alyse has broken one barrier, the next one is teaching her how to use guns so she can get that meat. Double the fun of just eating meat.

An introduction to Brenna Spencer, University of Tennessee graduate, should suffice:

No Sense Of Humour

Adolf just got home from a visit to the local butcher.

This outfit has the very best rump steak I can remember from as far back as I can remember.   The secret apparently is that the beast must be Aberdeen Angus (Black Polled Angus), no older than eighteen months at slaughter and the joint must be hung for at least six weeks.

Anyway I digress.

After selecting two pieces of two inch thick rump steak and four fore quarter lamb chops I asked about chicken schnitzel.  (The Cook wanted chicken schnitzel.)

‘Oh, they are up the other end,’ said the very attractive young lady butcher.  So off I went and, of course, she followed.

‘Would you like breast or thigh?’ enquired said attractive young lady butcher.  I wasn’t sure I had heard correctly so I turned up my hearing aids.

‘Errrr I beg your pardon?’

‘Would you like breast or thigh?’

“Well, I’ve always had a preference for thighs, actually”

She didn’t even crack a smile.
