The news that Barry did have time for his favourite double bacon cheeseburger at lunch calmed the country’s frazzled nerves.
For a nation remarkably unaffected by animal abuse and slaughter on a mass scale designed for our convenience, we certainly do get ragey about commuting inconvenience.
Websites from News.com.au to the ABC to leading satirical pages were seemingly ropable than Bazza had to skip his morning Maccas and still missed the opening 15-minute meeting monologue from his boss Betty about how much she hates vegans.
On the other hand, these news outlets gleefully demonised the animal liberation protesters as selfish day-ruining dickheads rather than human beings who will put themselves in harm’s way for a cause they believe in, namely protecting other sentient beings from unnecessary suffering.
But why focus on systemic oppression and the toxic hierarchies which are destroying our planet when you can order vegans a few meat lovers pizzas for a laugh?
