The word vegetarian is both a syllogism and a euphemism. Do self-said vegetarians eat only…vegetation? No, amongst other things, they tend to consume dairy or eggs or things fried in the same oil in which McNuggets were fried. Seems an authentic vegetarian would eat like a vegan, but would not call himself vegan. Hearing a person do so makes you want to sucker punch the pomposity right out of him!
