Spicy BBQ chips are too hot for humans but surprisingly the Blue Jay family prefered them to peanuts and sunflower seeds once they tried them!

Meat-vegetarian political conflict in Dutch Utrecht

This 6 March 2016 video by Elle from the Netherlands says about itself:

In this vlog you can see that we vegans only eat salad … no, just kidding! In this vlog I travelled to Utrecht and went to Veggieworld. There is a lot of vegan junk food there and awesome people. Hamburgers, cakes, candy, wraps and a whole lot more.

Dutch NOS TV reports today on a conflict in the local government of Utrecht city in the Netherlands.

The city executive is a coalition of various parties, including the VVD (pro-Big Business), D66 (also pro-Big Business, but not as anti-environment as the VVD), and GroenLinks (Green Left).

Recently, the opposition PvdD (Party for the Animals) moved in the council meeting that at all local government events at least 50% of all snacks should be vegan or vegetarian. To the surprise of many people, at the meeting last Thursday executive coalition parties D66 and GroenLinks voted for the PvdD motion, meaning there was a majority in favour of it.

The VVD is now angry, and the coalition may be in trouble.

From Waterford Whispers News in Ireland (satire; however, it often turns out that Trump makes satire reality):

Trump Demands Burritos Be Renamed “Freedom Wraps”

January 26, 2017

AS relations between the US and Mexico continue to crumble over the onerous issue of immigration and ‘the wall’, President Donald Trump has demanded that a range of Mexican foodstuffs be renamed to be ‘more patriotic’.

Taking example from the 2003 incident in which France opposed the US on the invasion of Iraq, leading to the White House cafeteria changing the names of french fries to ‘freedom fries’, Trump has decreed that burritos will now be known as ‘freedom wraps’, fajitas will be known as ‘freedom wraps’, quesadillas will be known as ‘freedom wraps’, and tacos will be known as ‘crunchy freedom wraps’.

As thousands of tex-mex restaurants prepared to change their description to just ‘tex’, Trump went on to denounce anyone who still refers to freedom wraps as ‘burritos’ to be ‘among the most unpatriotic, dangerous people in the country’.

“If the president says that they’re freedom wraps, then they’re freedom wraps. Period,” said White House press secretary Sean Spicer, drinking Gaviscon straight out of the bottle.

“Let’s just not question these things, okay? You can be one of two things; a red-blooded American enjoying a spicy, meat-and-cheese-filled freedom wrap, or a dirty flag-burning communist eating a burrito. Which would you like to be, eh? I thought so”.

Furthermore, Trump went on to declare that popular cartoon rodent Speedy Gonzales would be known as ‘Speedy Jones’ from now on.
