Ten Ways to Celebrate Vegetarian Awareness Month

October is Vegetarian Awareness Month. It's true. Vegetarians do exist, even in Dallas. And not only that, they should be celebrated, if for nothing else than for eating all the world's tofu so you don't have to see it.

Here are a few ways to help make everyone aware of your support for the carnivorously challenged.

1. For the rest of month, try to limit by 14 percent the frequency with which you call vegetarians "damn hippies."

This guy really loves vegetarians.
2. Dress up like a vegetarian or vegetable for Halloween.

3. Produce a series of pro-Vegetarian promotional items. For example, "Compared to vegans, vegetarians take the cake." Or, more simply: "Vegetarians: At least they're not vegans." Or, "Vegetarians: Leaving more meat for the rest of us since 1998 (or whenever they were invented.)"

4. Capitalize the word Vegetarian in all written correspondence for the entire month of October.

5. Tell everyone you're sponsoring a Vegetarian for a month. Carry around a wallet-sized photo of said Vegetarian and produce whenever necessary to prove your sponsorship.

I've adopted Arianna. See?

6. Collect donations for Vegetarian Awareness Month. Use the acronym "VAM" at all times.

7. Sport a kale-green ribbon or wristband for to show your undying support for VAM.

8. Refer to your dog/cat/spouse/child by a veg-friendly name for the entire month. Examples include: Sprout, Aubergine, Legume, Crucifer.

So many causes, so little wrist space.
9. Change your Facebook photo to that of your favorite vegetable. If you don't have a favorite vegetable, consider getting one. If you don't have Facebook ... how is that? We were thinking about doing it, but then we were like, "Where will I put all my photos" and "Can you even stalk you exes on Google Plus?"

10. Go an entire day eating as a Vegetarian. In fact, that might be a habit you choose to pick up every month. Or even every week. You might discover your new favorite dish is meat-free. Voila! Total Vegetarian Awareness.

Foodbitch is not a Vegetarian. However, she is currently celebrating Vegetarian Awareness Month. If you are a Vegetarian and you see her out and about, high five her and ask to see her wallet-sized pic of Arianna.

Arianna, why did you sell out your Huffington Post to zionists? Was it for the greenbacks?

Subway is also announcing Vegetarian Awareness Month. Many consumers are asking them to carry more substantial, animal-free fare. One group has set up a website which allows you to submit comments directly to the company, asking them to carry animal-free protein options, such as Tofurky slices. If you want to celebrate "VAM" in this way, you can reach Subway at http://WeLoveSubway.com and ask them to "beef up" their veggie options.

Well #10 sounds good at least. Optionally, you might want to visit the Texas State Veggie Fair on October 23rd (it's the last day of the "other" fair, which surely you'll be sick of by then). TexasStateVeggieFair.com
