Plant-based is winning!

 What is a vegan?  A vegan practices equality with animals.  We don’t have dominion over animals, we have stewardship.


 A man, angry at the city editor of the newspaper, said, “You put me in the obituary column, and I’m still alive.”

The city editor was truly contrite and said, “Tomorrow I’ll put you in the birth announcements.”

 If you get chilly, go stand in the corner; its 90 degrees!

 Medicaid made me have a physical with a doctor. What was the first thing the doctor said to Glendora?  “I like your hat.”  This was the best medicine he could have given me, better than any pill or any injection.

 Have you heard about the Czech trampoline team?  They call themselves The Bouncing Czechs!
