Society for the Protection of Plants
image The Society for the Protection of Plants wants you to know that cutting or injuring plants in any way is Murder. So stop mowing the lawn or walking across the grass, for crying out loud. This anti-vegetarianism ad was created by Max over at Maxigumee Land. And yes, of course, it's a spoof. He has a full gallery of these anti-vegetarianism ads. (via Adrants)

I'm not a vegetarian but I find this bit of satire insanely stupid. There are obvious reasons why the consumption of plant life is ethically different from consuming animal life. This is beyond any logical anti-vegetarianism argument (good, funny satire should at the very least point out something true and meaningful about its subject--otherwise you're just making random shit up).

I created those and I AM a vegetarian. The ads are just supposed to be weird. They're not actually trying to be anti-vegatarian.
