The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And some really swingin' physicists

Latest from the ever-clueless People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals: Chris Martin of Coldplay has been declared to be the world's sexiest vegetarian.

Now technically, this isn't an oxymoron, and I acknowledge the existence of people who qualify for other jarring juxtapositions there are, for instance, economics babes, sweet and sassy oilfield grunts, even the occasional dreamy psychometrician but I have to admit to a certain amount of sympathy for Dave's position:

The words "sexy" and "vegetarian" (of any type) are mutually exclusive.

Even though I have, yes, actually known one such.

The whole "veggie" thing just baffles me -- how could someone not enjoy the flavor of a fresh-grilled steak, or an almost-burned burger? On the other hand -- more for me!

If you've grown up in England, land of boiled mutton and boiled roast beef, then I can see why vegetarianism would seem more attractive. Then again, tandoori is boring when it's confined to just vegetables.

Like you said, more for me!

Eh. I don't care what you eat. If you're hot, then you're hot.

And, the guy *is* attractive.

I take that back... if you eat babies, then lose major "hot" points.

I have four words for Dave:

I refute it thus.

I agree with Andrea. Why?
Because she scares the heck out of me!

Mmmm... tandoori baby...

What? Lamb, I meant lamb. Honest. 8|

I'm still trying to see how what you eat relates to sex appeal...

oh wait, I see.

I'm a vegetarian but I'll still eat that. ;-)

seriously though, WTF does eating burgers have to do with anything sexual?
