Area vegans bemoan mammal shaped rice

leave a comment »

CLEVELAND – Two area vegans have expressed adamant displeasure about a plate of rice someone offered them which had the physical characteristics of a juvenile brown bear.

Tessa Adams and Vanessa Brown, both 22, were enjoying bowls of tofu soup over lunch at their place of work, when a co-worker attempted to give them the rice.

“I laughed at him initially, thinking he had forgotten we were vegans,” said Ms. Adams. She said the co-worker had a blank expression on his face and exited the room as quickly as possible. “We stared at the rice for a long time, trying to make sense of it all.”

Ms. Brown said the zoological nature of the molded rice caused her to lose her appetitive. “I gagged on a carrot stick about an hour later,” said Ms. Brown.

The women are considering the possibility of legal action against their assailant. They would not release his name, but say he has voluntarily left the company and fled the country.
