As research shows more people are removing animal products from their diets than ever before, Shareena Hamzah of Swansea University says idioms involving animal products could be rendered obsolete because they are out of touch with the zeitgeist.

Writing for The Conversation, the researcher explains how meat-based metaphors are a popular staple of our everyday vernacular but that an increased awareness in the environmental and ethical issues surrounding meat production “will undoubtedly be reflected in our language and literature” and that this language may no longer be so widely accepted.

So "bringing home the bacon" may not be acceptable soon. Food based idioms may not be acceptable.

Well that cheeses me off. It burns my toast. I may be just "hot dogging" here, but I have a steak in this.


People are so stupid.

Where does that leave someone like me? I'm the bread winner of the family. But I guess it's all gravy as far as the SJW crowd is concerned. Cheeseburger.

Plant defense system chemicals are making that guy delusional. He needs to go out and eat meat and bacon again or they will have to lock him in a padded cell.

No way is anyone going to take away my bacon. I have guns, I will use them if necessary to shoot a pig.
Not the cop kind of pig, the real pig.

It's ok i'm sure these will still be acceptable for the unwashed masses to consume

Surprisingly enough, among all kinds of edible insects out there, termites are the species most appreciated by European consumers. An everyday treat for people living in Africa, especially in Congo, they or they are raised, boiled then dried. Their taste will remind you that bacon but much more gentle with sweet notes.


Maybe it can be bringing home the termites??

A good brine is easy to make, and a smoker is easy to find or make. The rest is pretty much up to your imagination. Cheeseburger.

How are we going to chew the fat with NO bacon?!!

I have not been able to indulge in quite some time but, I DO believe that you all should have the option.

Oh no, am I a SJW?



Maybe a BJW?!! THAT has all sorts of weird connotations, so NVM

Yeah, like I'm going to take any advice on bacon and other savory pork products from anyone named "Hamzah."
