Glendora Vegetarian Club

Twelve years ago, Glendora was walking down the basement stairs, of the Nassau free library, with the director in front of her and said, “lets start a vegan club”.  

New director stopped, turned her head and looked up to Glendora and said, “Good Idea”.  We have spent 13,000 dollars on vegan meals and vegan groceries, and 69,000 dollars in Television News advertising.  We have made 400 TV commercials.  Channel 6 has given us 32 free commercials.  

A woman was asked if her husband was active in church, she said he fidgets, squirms, and wiggles.  

The shop owner said to his employee, I heard you arguing with a customer,  It is a strict policy of this store that the customer is always right.  I do not want to hear you argue with a customer again. Do you understand?  The employee said humbly, yes sir.  Now, what were you arguing about?  The employee said, He said you were an idiot.  

Remember Taco Bell has delish vegan salads; Burger King has a delicious Impossible Whopper and subway has a vegan sub. And there is a brand new vegan burger joint, called Burger Wizard on South Pearl Street in Albany.
