I’ve never really understood the hatred that meat eaters have for vegans – if they’re cool and don’t go around preaching about it, just let them be – but at least it means that we get to hear really ridiculous stories like the one in this article.
I don’t really know what James Blunt hates vegans so much, but we all know that he loves trolling people and being a weirdo on the internet so it’s no surprise really that he has a story about when he was trying to demonstrate how much cooler/better it was to eat meat. It’s even funnier that he completely owned himself as a result of it as well.
Blunt was appearing on Jessie Ware’s podcast when he decided to tell the story about his time at the University Of Bristol studying manufacturing engineering and sociology in the mid 90s:
On the sociology side of things there were 170 girls and only three boys, of which all the girls were vegetarian or vegans.
So out of principle I decided I’d become a carnivore and just lived on mince, some chicken, maybe with some mayonnaise.
And it took me about six to eight weeks to get very unhealthy and see a doctor, who then said, ‘I think you’ve got the symptoms of scurvy.’
He made me drink orange juice every day to sort it out. I drank so much that I almost developed acid reflux.
What a completely stupid story. James Blunt is almost worse than one of those preachy vegans in this one for ‘becoming a carnivore on principle’. What an absolutely insufferable bore. I hope the scurvy was really painful because he deserves it. Bet he was a real hoot at uni and not annoying at all. Definitely wasn’t one of those pricks that would whip out the acoustic at house parties or anything. Not at all.
