US Senator Cory Booker wishes a happy thank you to NJVegan
My first thought was, “Oh for goodness sake”.
My next thought was how terrible it was the time I tried to eat tofu.
My third was: ‘Thank goodness Booker didn’t become president.’
Here is what I react to. Former Newark Mayor and current United States Senator Cory Booker is a well-known vegan. The first to be a serious candidate for the Oval Office.
His image is used on posters pasted at bus stops around Newark encouraging people to enjoy a ThanksVegan instead of Thanksgiving. Artist and activist Nikkolas Smith was inspired by an old work by Norman Rockwell of people gathered around a dinner table. He used the image of Senator Booker and other notable vegans seated around the table enjoying a vegan Thanksgiving. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is, of course, behind this.
“When people realize that turkeys love their families, feel pain and fear, and enjoy their lives, they can’t wait to put a Tofurky on the table,” Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA. tell nj.com. “PETA offers recipes, buying tips and more so everyone can enjoy an all-American ThanksVegan meal that leaves sweet birds in peace.”
If you’d like to see Booker enjoy this tofurkey, here’s where the bus stops all around Newark are located that have these posters.
- 1048 Broad St. (two shelters at this location)
- 1191, boulevard Raymond
- 63, market street
- 29 Springfield Avenue
- 847 Broad Street
- 678 Broad Street
- 61, route 510
- 773 Broad Street
- 798 Broad Street
If you don’t know where tofu falls in the hierarchy of awful tasting foods, let me explain.
Worse and worse:
Stale salted crackers
Seriously, to all my vegan friends? I’m sure you’re much healthier than me and it’s good for you to have the discipline. Watch the wonders a vegan diet has done for New Jersey filmmaker Kevin Smith. So more power for you. Thanks Vegan!
