Confessions of a Jewish *** Vegan
I’m willing to bet my last Goldenberg Peanut Chew that you love comedian/writer Carol Leifer just as much as I do. Even if her name doesn’t sound familiar, millions of Seinfeld fans can thank her for penning countless “I-laughed-so-hard-vino-shot-out-of-my-nose!” moments.
Carol recently tossed all animal products from her fridge—no more milk stolen from calves, no more eggs from miserable hens, and no more bacon from pigs gone crazy from confinement—and she sat down with PETA to film the following vegetarian testimonial (Before you watch it, I suggest you put that wine down, lest you spray Chardonnay all over your keyboard):
One of my favorite lines: “I recently became vegan because I felt that as a Jewish lesbian, I wasn’t part of a small enough minority. So now I’m a Jewish lesbian vegan.”
If that video wasn’t enough hilarity for you, you can check out here and here for other versions of the video. Plus, we’ve got 10 copies of Carol’s book—When You Lie About Your Age, The Terrorists Win: Reflections on Looking in the Mirror—to give away too. Win yours by letting us know, in the comments section below, the funniest thing you tell people when they ask why you went vegetarian.
