“I’m a second-hand vegetarian. Cows eat grass. I eat cows”

"I’m a second-hand vegetarian. Cows eat grass. I eat cows” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images. “I only eat animals that feed on grass.  Does that make me a second hand vegetarian?” was posted on the newsgroup uk.local.cumbria on February 26, 2001.

Homer Simpson, a fictional character of the American animated television series The Simpsons, was promoting The Simpsons Movie in July 2007 and was quoted:

“I think of myself as a second-hand vegetarian. Cows eat grass, I eat cows.”

I only eat animals that feed on grass.  Does that make me a second hand vegetarian?

20 July 2007, Herald Sun (Melbourne, Australia), “Simpsons d’oh it big” by James Wigney, pg. 17:
What are some of the challenges of having a vegetarian in the house (your daughter Lisa)? Would you ever consider becoming a vegetarian yourself?

I (Homer Simpson—ed.) think of myself as a “second-hand vegetarian”: cows eat grass, I eat cows.

22 July 2007, The Independent on Sunday (London, UK), “Exclusive! On the couch with the legendary Homer Simpson” by Cole Moreton, pg. 1:
He (Homer Simpson—ed.) is hungry now. The dozen doughnuts I brought as a gift have gone. He misses Marge’s pork chops. “I think of myself as a second-hand vegetarian,” he tells me. “Cows eat grass, I eat cows.”
