yup, i was only goofing, i totally stole that joke from some borscht belt comedian.

but my gf's family and many of my friends really did raise money and send it to isreal for trees. i might even have paid for one after how many times i helped her out and also donated, lol.

it's a goy tree. the other trees like it but would rather their seeds get pollinated by other jewish trees...

has anyone ever heard the thing about the only food items in the old testament were milk, honey, and manna?

a vegan tried to pass that off on me one night, i guess trying to make me feel guilty for eating meat.

Your vegan friend should try another tactic. Leviticus Ch 11 verse 3: "Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall ye eat." There are also references to "clean" beasts that were acceptable to eat in Deuteronomy, I believe. I'm not sure where, but I also recall examples of priests eating parts of burnt offerings after they were burnt, which were meat. These are not only in the Old Testament, but in the first 5 books, so whether he was going by the entire OT or the Torah, eating meat is definitely there. & if he was getting it confused with the New Testament, there are multiple examples of eating fish, which definitely goes against the vegan lifestyle. Not saying that there's anything wrong with the vegan lifestyle, just that trying to use the Bible to back it up doesn't work so well.

You could have pointed this out, but biting him was probably just as effective.
