For the Veg*n Traveler

A friend shared this on her blog and I thought I would share as well, for non-meat eaters who read this and like to travel.

International Vegetarian Union

It has common sentences in a range of languages to help in the ordering of food.

There is only one glaring omission…..they don’t include jive. So I took the liberty of translating some of the phrases.

Jive
I duzn’t feed da bud meat, fish, o’ dairy – I don’t eat meat, fish, or dairy
I am some vegetarian (vegan) – I am a vegetarian (vegan)
Give me some boogie, fish counts as meat too. Right On! – Give me a break, fish counts as meat too!
Get dat meat off mah’ plate befo’e ah’ slap ya’ downside da damn ‘haid! – Get that meat off my plate before I slap you upside the head!
