Well, it looks like the Internet meme we were all hoping would finally disappear hasn’t quite done so quite yet. In a bid to cash in on the final vestiges of our interest in “Sh*t People Say,” the LA-based spiritual and animal rights center Shamayim V’Aretz Institute has put out a video of Mayim Bialik letting us in on “Stuff Kosher Meat-Eaters Say To Kosher Vegans.” Bialik, of course, is the poster child for kosher veganism…and for attachment parenting…and for young women with dual neuroscience research and successful showbiz careers…and…

The video is a promo for Bialik’s participation in Shamayim V’Aretz’s upcoming spiritual retreat, which will focus on the intersection of the issues of animal welfare activism, kosher veganism and Jewish spirituality.

So what exactly do kosher meat-eaters say to kosher vegans?

Stuff like, “Water challah? That’s not real challah.”; “So who’s your vegan butcher?”; “Not eating honey with apples on Rosh Hashanah is like not having sex on Shabbos. It just feels wrong.”; and my favorite —“Wine and meat on Shabbos equals happiness. Are you never happy?”

Bialik expertly delivers many more fun and informative lines.
