The Mully Cup for December 2012 goes to… Freddy Vegan!

By johnboy - 7 January 2013 23

mully cup

It is with great excitement we announce that the December 2012 Mully Cup has been won by Freddy Vegan who was more outraged than everyone else by kangaroo on the menu at Tidbinbilla.

The Mully Cup is awarded monthly to the entity stimulating the most comment on this website. It is named in memory (if not in honour) of Justin Mully Williams who both improved our world, and set the record for comments, in his departure.

For those unfamiliar with the Mully Cup we did record its creation and here’s a picture of the finished Mully:

Don’t you care about the bacteria and insects that die as a result of your existence, Freddy? Or does the animal have to be fuzzy and wuvable to be considered innocent. It’s the arbitrariness of what counts as an innocent animal in veganism that s***s me.

That’s not fair!

Freddy’s probably a Jain. They’re vegans who walk around naked and carry little brushes with them, which they use to brush off any places on which they’re going to sit so that no bugs or ants or bacteria are killed by their cheeks when they sit down.

That article linked to by JB is very worrying about dairy products. Worrying to me anyway.

I fully understand the desire to cause minimal harm to animals, but I do think that kangaroos in Australia are in a different category from cattle, in terms of damage to the land (which must impact on the survival of other animals).

I say well done to FreddyVegan for raising these general issues, even if I doubt that I could be a vegan.

She certainly attracted a lot of robust criticism.

Q. How can you tell if someone is a vegan?
A. They tell you.

What an honour, many thanks to all my haters, so basically the whole readership.

I’m not a hater. I’d eat you slow-cooked, with lots of smoky barbeque sauce!

Should it save the life of an innocent animal I shall sacrifice myself.

Which just leaves the animals without innocence. Excellent.

I don’t hate you Freddy, I think you are sort of funny.

Me too, Freddy, you’ve assisted to provide a lot of entertainment, and for that I thank you.
Also noticed the latest ‘Tim the Yowie Man’ article/mention of Tidbinbilla in the local rag concluded with a recommendation of the Roo on the menu.
You’ve done a great service to Tourism of the area.

You had the back of you hand on your forehead while you typed that, right?

Which is not to say a vegan diet preserves all animals: http://www.animalvisuals.org/projects/data/1mc

Also not a hater, but it was a little bit of gamey, textured vegetable protein-y fun, sh!ts and/or giggles.

For the record, I love vegans. I just couldn’t eat a whole one.
