I never heard of the guy. Maybe you never heard of him either. BUT, he DID write the book above...it WAS on the NY Times Best Seller list....he IS smart...he IS a fancy "food expert"...and all I have to say is EAT ME MICHAEL POLLAN!

OK...I JUST took a breath...I calmed down...I did my OHMS.

But the truth is, I hate sell outs. I know I'm a long way from perfect. Even with my vegan lifestyle..I know I can do better. I'm still not paying enough attention to fats...sweets...alcohol. I'm way better than I was...but I still have a long way to go.

BUT AT LEAST I'M IN...I'M ALL IN. I said I'm buying into this vegan thing and I'm fuckin' doing it.

Before I tear into this idiot...let me preface this with telling you about the end of last week. I went with my best buddy to see our sons, who are roommates at Penn State....and friends since they were crawling.

I stopped at Joe Paterno's memorial every day. I appreciated his light in the sky above Beaver Stadium. I paid my respects, said a prayer, and thanked Joe for helping the school I love become one of the best universities in the country.

But on another level, I'm still pissed at him. He was insulated, narcissistic and able to turn his back on kids he could have, and should have, protected.

He coined: “Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.” Joe often spoke about "Winning with Honor."  Yet, he failed to protect the kids that were in Happy Valley because they looked up to him and his program.

To me...Joe wasn't all in.  And that's what irritates the shit out of me when it comes to Michael Pollan.

Amy and I love to hear great speakers speak. Philly has this amazing "Speaker Series" and we really enjoy it. We've heard Jane Goodall,  Jacques Cousteau's son Jean Michel, former South African President FW de Klerk and later this Spring, Tom Brokaw...

With our vegan thing jivin'...we were excited to hear from Michael Pollan..the "Food Expert."

Unfortunately, Mikey Boy was a big fuckin' sell out. "I'm plant based, but I like meat." I don't even believe this dude...I think this bastard is a closet vegan! But he likes to write...and he likes to sell what he writes...and he likes to enlist people who can pay him big money to write more...and since they raise and butcher cattle...or sell milk...he needs to get us to drink and eat the shit his backers sell.

Yes...you heard it from The BIg Sexy first....The Pollanater is a sell out. If he were any more down the middle...he'd be eating....well, you know where I'm going with that one.

He said, "it's not what you eat but how much you eat.:  No shit, Einstein! However, very few of us know moderation......ok, some of us do, but I don't know shit about it so lets assume I'm typical. If I ate as much as I wanted of stuff that's healthy and plant based...I'd live longer, and  be finer, leaner and meaner.

I know this prick is a vegan. I know he knows what we need to do to live longer. I also know that up until now, vegan doesn't get you to the NY Times Best Seller list, so lets talk mainstream...sell out...and then he can give some of his kick ass royalties to the Arteriosclerosis Fund.

Eat me Michael Pollan!

And to my kids, if you're wondering what the point of this one is.... for better or for worse, DON'T SELL OUT.

Onward and downward.
