Garbage Throwing Hooligans Attack Vegan Pizza Shop!

posted by on September 11 at 16:54 PM

Vegan pizza is under attack!

Last night, a group of three teenagers tossed a large blue bag of garbage through the front door of Pizza Pi in the University District.

“I guess they’d picked up a bag of garbage somewhere,” says Pizza Pi owner Colin Blanchette. “They just kind of chucked it in the door and ran off. I ran after them but didn’t catch them or anything.”

No damage was done and Blanchette did not contact the police, although he says he might if it ever happens again.”I just chalked it up to kids being kids,” he says.

The war between vegans and omnivores has begun!

My sources tell me it was a symbolic attack by radical members of PETV...People for the Ethical Treatment of Vegetables.

You've got to admit most vegan food if pretty crappy but that doesn't warrant a big bag of garbage through the front door.

Maybe perhaps the old small bag of flaming poo on the back doorstep trick...

vegan food can be good provided it doesn't try to imitate non vegan food. also, another problem with vegan food is how its always conflated with other special person food: gluten free, peanut free, taste free.

Not to be pedantic, but without the hyphen this headline takes on a different meaning.

Maybe if they had better food it would be a war.

But they don't.

An army fights on its stomach.

Which puts vegans at a severe disadvantage.

@4 you are right; the title is hilarious!

Their pizza was always undercooked whenever I had it, but I don't think it was awful. Not the best, but I've had far worse. Too much rosemary in the sauce. This sounds like normal UD behavior.
