“What did one vegan say to the other vegan?"/"We have to stop meating like this.”

"Meat” sounds like “meet.” A vegetarian riddle has been cited in print since at least 2003:

Q: What did one vegetarian spy say to the other vegetarian spy?
A: “We have to stop meating like this.”


A vegan version was posted on Twitter on August 22, 2012:

Q: What did one vegan say to the other vegan?
A: “We have to stop meating like this.”

A travel company just launched all-vegan tours
BY MELISSA LOCKER
There’s an old joke about one vegan saying to the other vegan, “we have to stop meating like this!” Now vegans can “meat” on vegan food tours, traveling the world telling everyone they meet that they are vegan.
