A big part of tailgating happens to be the consumption of dead animal flesh after giving it a proper viking funeral over an open flame. Now a recent study has come out saying that meat eaters may have bigger brains compared to vegetarians and vegans.
The Times of India: Eating Veggies Shrinks The Brain
I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! No wonder I feel brilliant after tailgating all day.
To paraphrase the report, apparently eating veggies without meat actually shrinks the brain. It has to do with vitamin deficiency and vegetarians not getting enough with their limited diets. The study goes on to say that those on a meat-free diet are six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage.
I am planning on printing this out and placing it in my tailgating utility box from now on. Now I have some ammo for the next time some PETA protester comes up to my tailgate and tells me how “Meat is Murder”. I’ll whip out this little study and have them read it. I wonder what the look on their faces will be… that is if their sadly shrunken brain can comprehend the words on the page.
