Anthony Bourdain of No Reservations gets paid to travel the world and eat. It’s not a shabby job, and one I would kill for (almost). Living a life like that, you would think that he might get soft, but this is not so. In his travels, he has eaten animals bits of all shapes and sizes, from sheep testicles to raw seal eyeballs. Oh, and he also hates vegetarians.
In the video above, he says,
I think…[vegetarianism] is rude.” Welcome to the fight, buddy! He continues by saying, “All of the once-in-a-lifetime experiences I’ve had…[such as] sitting in the Mekong Delta with rice farmers drinking…rice moonshine and eating duck, it wasn’t really good duck, but…that amazing night never would have happened if the duck comes out of the kitchen…and I said, ‘Can I have an egg-white omelet…?’
It looks like meat really does bring people together. I can’t imagine vegetables creating an experience like that. He also provides useful information for anyone trying to bring a vegetarian back from the dark side, saying, “…put bacon around them, it’s the gateway protein.”
For promoting the international eating of animals of all sorts and having such disdain for vegetarians, Anthony Bourdain, you are a true Unvegan Hero!
