Glendora Vegeterian Club

Phil Eddy, a vegan for 19 years, reports that inflation has not invaded plant based products as much as animal products. He also reports that mushroom based meats are appearing in stores. VegNews quotes Future Market Insights that sales of plant based products are anticipated to quadruple to $1,000,000. His keen shopping sense notes that plant based milk products have eclipsed the space of dairy products. At Shoprite if you spend $400, you can get a free plant based turkey.

Glendora hopes that Honest Weight Co-op will have vegan pumpkin pies again this Thanksgiving. Currently Honest Weight has Tofurkey roasts on sale.


1. In the White House, a man saw a gold phone and was told that he could talk to God on that phone, so he called God and spoke with Him for 3 minutes. “What do I owe for the call?” he asked. $300 was the answer.  One month later this man was transferred to Israel. He saw a gold phone there and talked to God for 3 minutes. “What do I owe?” he asked. $3 was the answer. “In the White House I was charged $300,” he said. The people there replied, “Over here it’s a local call.”

2. Daddy is in the living room watching football; mother is in the kitchen cooking. The little boy runs to her and asks, “What does NFL stand for?” The mother answers, “National Foolishness Live.”

3. What happens when ducks fly upside down? They quack up!

4. Why do fish live in salt water? Pepper makes them sneeze.
