So in only a week or so, 36,176 people have signed up for “Hug a Vegetarian” Day. Now that the day is finally here, everyone has all these questions for me about how I came up with the idea, what other animal rights-themed holidays I’ve got up my sleeve, and where I got the HI-LARIOUS hug-related facts from (seriously, if you didn’t read them, do it now–if you click on “Random Hug-Related Fact of the Moment” it will refresh and you’ll see a new fact). Well, I’ll answer the last question first: If you couldn’t tell, I actually made up all of the hug-related facts. I first tried searching for “hug facts” on google, but was greatly disappointed at the results, so I decided to just make some up that sounded official. I am curious to find out how many hug-related deaths there are each year, though.
So, onto the other questions: How did I come up with “Hug a Vegetarian” Day you ask? Well, it all started with a tattoo I got a little over two years ago…
So what’s next? I’m thinking “Talk Like a Vegan Day” or “Vegetarian New Year” (which, of course, is on May 12). We’ll see.
Anyway, here are some pictures from “Hug a Vegetarian” Day. BEST. HOLIDAY. EVER.
P.S. I wish Tofutti made a really huge, like, 3-foot long Cutie and called it a Hug. I’d eat the fuck out of Tofutti Hugs.
