Glendora Vegetarian Club

The CEO said to an employee: “You have been just like a son to me, surly, insolent and unappreciative.”  A man said that he loves the way my boss holds his business meetings.  He summons us together. He presents his proposals. Then he says, all in favor say aye and all opposed say bye. Regardless of what you read in the newspapers people do not die in alphabetical order. Please give some time, money and energy to the American Vegan Society, Mercy for animals, Vegan Outreach, Humane Farming Association, Friends of Animals, Farm Animals Rights Movement, and Physicians for responsible medicine. On her commercials to help the animals, Glendora includes audience laughter to her jokes in her vegan commercial on Channel 6 CBS 6:30pm news. Burger King has a vegan hamburger. Soon they will have a vegan whopper.
