The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

My definition of vegan is the dictionary definition, which merely means a person who consumes no animals for food, which sounds like a basic enough concept to me. You're using a different definition from what I can tell:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/vegan:

a strict vegetarian who consumes no food (such as meat, eggs, or dairy products) that comes from animals

It sounds like you're talking about "veganism" as some type of cultural trend, fad diet, or otherwise, which to me doesn't have much in the way of bearing on the discussion, since all of those things would merely be tertiary to veganism, rather than "veganism" by the bare bones definition.

(e.x. How one reacts to mice being killed wouldn't have any relevance when it comes to discussing whether or not one should kill or eat mice).

He can have it. I've put all my eggs into the "Most Likely to Frustrate hugodrax with a Post" category this year.
That was funny, but you don't. I've reached a CPS epiphany.
Fantastic.

If you put it to music will you share your Opus?

Probably not. MrsCoco has known for years, but she still points it out from time to time.

My wife figured out I was nuts from my first statement to her.

I was looking for a wife when I went to grad school. At the first meal, I sat down next to the girl with the longest hair. As the people at the table were giving their names, she said she was Laura. Someone else asked if she was Laura or Laurie. Her response was whatever you want. So, I said, "How about Heather?" Obviously, this joke got her attention. A couple thousand jokes later she said "YES!" and "I do."
