That's the sort of post title that gets you banned in middle America. And yet, there is a grain of truth in that post title.

You see, once upon a time, there were two aging and cranky vegans (their words, not mine). These two aging and cranky vegans decided to move to Alaska for a year and impose their dietary restrictions upon a perfectly nice set of omnivores. And though the omnivores suffered greatly, they made the effort to feed the two aging and cranky vegans for a year. When the time came for the two aging and cranky vegans to leave Alaska, they left behind a gift and a request. The gift? A generous gift certificate to Big Daddy's Barbecue. The request? Full documentation of the carnivorous orgy.

We invited all and sundry to join us, but in the end it was just the five of us who suffered the most vegan food who showed up. Clockwise from left: Don, Jen, James, Mary and Tom. Not pictured: Salak, who remained under the table in her baby prison carrier.
First up, we had appetizers. That's a big old basket of meat, yes indeed. In the background, you can see the cleverly named "Moose Nuggets." This enraged James, who kept saying, "Hush puppies."
Tom and I raise a chunk of meat to our two favorite aging and cranky vegans.
Drop some sauce on your shirt? Not a problem if you're James. This may be why the two aging and cranky vegans often said he wasn't quite housebroken.
Tom's plate of brisket before.
Tom's plate of brisket approximately 7.8 seconds later. "You finished that thing?" James asked incredulously. He sure did. We spent the rest of the meal listening to Tom say, "Are you going to eat that?" and, "I'll take some of that."
Jen and Don opted to horrify the two aging and cranky vegans as much as possible, and ordered the aptly named Pig Out Platter.
Mmmmm.....pulled pork. I love pulled pork. Wait a minute, is that corn on the cob? That's vegan, right? Hell no! It's a cobbet, a piece of corn on the cob that has been flash-fried in garlic butter. Delicious, delicious garlic butter. Even the bread isn't vegan.
James figured since he wasn't paying, he might as well order the whole rack of ribs. We also attempted to pad the bill with vegan-approved beer, and lots of it.
Brownie sundae? Not vegan.
Flan? Not vegan.

Yellowy-white cake? (Yeah, that's what the waitress called it) Not vegan.


Baby Salak? Not vegan.
Cheesecake? So not vegan.

The residents of Hidden Hill express their thanks and best wishes to the two aging and cranky vegans. If we had known about the happy hour special, we could have spent the gift certificate on 40 appetizers. As it was, we returned to Hidden Hill with a balance left on the gift certificate. I predict pulled pork will be making an appearance at a dinner soon.

I looked for another way to contact you, but this was the only way I found. Hope you don't mind.

I'm a fellow Alaskan Blogger, http://thegreatland.blogspot.com .
I'm making the rounds asking Alaskan Bloggers to support Andrew Halcro for Governor. (http://www.andrewhalcro.com/)I'm not associated with the campaign in any way, I'm just trying to get some grass root support generated through the Internet and word of mouth. He has a mountain of an up hill battle to win against the Republican and Democrat political machines. Let's take back Alaska for Alaskans.

I understand that not every blog is appropriate for political commentary. However, if you could post a link to my blog and pass the word on to others that would be a help.

Thanks and best wishes to you and yours.

Is it just me, or is to beyond hilarious that someone chose this particular post to use as a place to pitch their candidate?

Hi Mary and All the Hillbillies!!

Omigoodness what a meal!!

The "pigout platter" or whatever it was called, perhaps is some sort of indicator that the apocalypse is coming soon, or t least should come soon.

Still, we're glad you had a good time and that this massively carniverous experience compensates all of you indulging the aging and cranky vegans for a year.

By the way, what the hell is "pulled pork"? It sounds vaguely pronographic.

Love and vegan kisses from The Aging anc Cranky Vegans
