Hmmm close call. No audio at work but that was the song for my chess club in highschool. Quickly whipped out my iPod and started my ICP πŸ˜›

Grats for sticking to you ideal. Not an easy feat, I couldn’t give up my meat.

I too became a vegetarian because of a girl. We had been dating for a few weeks, but it didn’t go very far because she said she “could smell the meat on me” (which apparently disgusted her). All I ever really ate meat-wise were hamburgers and pepperoni pizza, but it didn’t matter to her. Any meat was too much. So on “Earth Day” 1987 I ate my last hamburger so we could move our relationship to the next level. We broke up three weeks later, but the vegetarianism stuck.

For a different… almost comical… version of “One Night in Bangkok,” you should check out the cover by “A*Teens.” It’s nothing compared to the original, but is an interesting take on the material.

You are the third man I know that became a vegetarian because of a woman and stayed that way long after she was gone.

I keep toying with the idea…maybe I need to find a veggie man? LOL.

I love my steak too much to give it up. I love meat.

*ahem* I guess you already knew that!

Zanthera: Hooray for high school chess clubs! And starting your ICP — Is that your Insane Clown Posse? Always found them intriguing…

Dave: At least you had the girl at one point! But yeah — it’s weird that it still sticks, isn’t it? Oh — and I think I’ve heard the A*Teens version: is that the one in which the spoken parts are recited it (I think?) Russian?

Hilly: (and, I suppose, Dave as well) I find the phenomenon of men becoming vegetarians simply to get closer to getting women to take their “meat is murder” shirts off in from of them is fascinating. I had no idea that this was such a popular practice. I’ll have to do some research to determine exactly how widespread this is. (And I don’t have any data, but I’ve never heard of it happening the other way around.

MetalMom: You and Mrs. Shiny would get along swimmingly!

Thanks to you all for visiting — especially the first-time replying-folks. πŸ™‚

So, you became a vegetarian to become a vagitarian? Noble.

Fanfriggintastic song. I remember it well, but I’m not dumb enough to click on that video. I have enough earwigs already, thanks.

Can’t do the vegetarian thing. Not that I have a problem with vegetables…love them. But I also love meat. Mostly eat chicken because I really have tried to cut back on red meats. Still, as they say, I haven’t fought my way to the top of the food chain just to eat vegetables!

othurme: Heh. And speaking of vaginas — what the hell is that new avatar? It looks like the nether regions of a woman I met at the central bus stration in Toledo…

Zanth: I hear ya. Game takes too long…

Shiny: I remember hearing the song for the first time completely out context and not knowing what it was about. Ah, to be young and naive again…

Karl: The “top of the food chain” comment — our good family friend Steve just said the exact same thing to me on Wednesday! His wife is a vegetarian; Steve would invite my wife over when he was making steak. Good times…

Has to be the ONLY pop song with a GREAT flute solo! The flutter-tongue technique and the echo on it is incredible!

I must have meat, i literally crave protein every day! (That’s what he said!)
