Glendora Vegetarian Club 

 Did you look them in the eye? Who? The ones you handed check out to be clubbed and slaughtered. No? Why not? I’m ashamed. Why? Because of the cruelty they were subjected to from birth. I took them away from their mothers. I took their milk away from them. I took away their freedom. I put them in dirty enclosures all their lives – enclosures rancid with urine and feces. I took away their fresh air and sunshine. I took away their babies. I forced them with an electric prod in the rectum to get them into a smelly truck. I beat them into a slaughterhouse, tearing limbs from their bodies. Then I cut their bloody bodies into pieces and ate them. I paid money to do all this.

1. Did you hear about the couple who got married so late in life that Medicare paid for 80%of the honeymoon?

2. Mommy, are you sure this food is healthy? It tastes good.

3. Teenagers brighten up a home. They never turn out the lights.

4. Why do they call English “the Mother Tongue?”

Because Father never gets to use it.

5. The doctor said, “You mustn’t mow the lawn. You will have a heart attack.”

Harry went home and asked his son to mow the lawn. His son said, “Yes, Dad, I’ll start immediately.” Harry had a heart attack.
