While we know that being vegan is all about grubbin’ and feelin’ fantastic all the time, some people just don’t get it yet, and it’s super-important that we can drop some knowledge when talking about our awesome vegan foodie selves with everyone around us. That’s why it’s the worst when you’re not quite sure how to pronounce a common vegan word.

But have no fear, peta2 is here to break it down for y’all with this informative (and appropriately sassy) video so you can sound like the total (vegan) genius that we all know you already are!

It’s about havin’ a good “day,” not about “dying”… who knew?!

Seriously? NO EXCUSES HERE!

Now that you’re ready to sound like the pronunciation king or queen and awesome vegan you were always meant to be, you can watch the full video here!

It’s 2014. We ALL know just how easy, important, and awesome it is to go vegan at this point. Being vegan means eating delicious food and enjoying that warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing that you can stuff your face while also saving animals (umm, yes please!).

So now that you know what’s up, make sure you spread the word (see what I did there?!) by sharing this video on your Twitter or Facebook!
