New £5 contains animal fat

Recommended Posts

Independent story

 

This is just a rant from vegetarians for now.  The next one will be when we find out which animal "donated" the fat, it'd be just so fitting with 2016 if it turns out to contain pig lard. :D

I know a couple of vegans who will genuinely be having a hard time mentally about this given the lengths they go to to avoid any and all animal products.

To support the vegan/vegetarian folk I will be setting up an ethical, organic, animal free £5 note re-homing/disposal service that is available for them to use. I am seeking celebrity endorsement and it will be launched using a variety of naked vegetarian supermodels wearing nothing but lettuce.

 

I wonder if I can get a government grant for this

I could worry about you.

As an extra selling point, you could promise to use the "rehomed" money in ethical and non-cruel ways, including allowing the supermodels to double their calorie intake by eating the lettuce leaves you give them and buying your new mid-life crisis toys.  Obviously, I'd prefer you didn't use supermodels, that's exploitation of dumb animals, I'd rather some healthier looking celebrities or Strictly Come Dancing female professional dancers.

Are the strictly dancers available in gluten free varieties?

This is terrible.

If anyone feels they cannot handle these £5 notes because of the use of animal fats (remember it could be PORK fat)

PM me for my address and you can send them to me and I will reemburse you the postage costs.

One of the papers says the tallow is mostly beef fat, but will have a bit of sheep and pig in there too.

Only a cockwomble would not have foreseen issues with this.

Perhaps some form of genetically modified mammalian / crustacean could be used so it could donate body parts that would then regrow.

If only a reputable company had already invested many years and up to 50p in research.

Can I just point out  this is not just a vegetarian/vegan thing, it is a Muslim/Sikh/Hindu thing also?

 

Stop being white elitist, northern, put down, English for a minute. and realise there might be people who are not White, Northern, English, who support Rugby League on here for a minute, and realise there may be people with different ideological beliefs out there, considering we now live in the 21st Century?

Sikhs and Hindus are already involved in the concerns about the new notes.

 

As for Muslims and Jews, I suppose it depends if the tallow traces contain any pork at all. I haven't seen any positive or negative claims about that yet. But tallow is usually just beef fat, as far as I know.

Yes, because believing in sky pixies who tell you what you can and cannot eat and touch is so 21st century isn't it?
