Well, well, well, isn't this embarrassing. A recent study surveying 1,789 people in the United Kingdom reported that over a third of vegetarians "break veg" and eat meat while intoxicated. The study, reported by Munchies, said that a a comically large 34% of vegetarians were prone to meat binges during periods of intoxication.
So what kind of meat do these lying faux-veggies go for? 39% go straight to the kebab stand, (because England) while 34% eat burgers. The rest split their booze-fueled tirades between bacon, fried chicken, and pork sausages. Did anyone else's mouth just fill up with saliva?
69% of those who admitted to meat splurges further admitted that they keep the binges to themselves and don't tell others about what happened, while 31% fess up to their crispy, crunchy, sizzling sins. If nothing else, this study offers up definitive proof that vegetarians are husks of humans who can come to terms with their terrible decisions under the influence of beer. Oh wait, this is England...hard cider.
