I interrupt the regularly scheduled Freedom Friday for VeganMoFo HUMP DAY! We are about half way through VeganMoFo and the Amazing Leslie Hall has graced us with this amazing new song to celebrate. Click on the animated gif below (made by Kittee Berns! Thanks for setting all of this up Kittee!) and listen to the song.
"I eat the finest cuisines, in the finest of places Stuff my mouth full and always say thank you. But if it's raised in a cage, and it can't even move, if it's hormone filled and in a bad mood. I'm gonna pass on that. Reach for something better. The only milk I'll drink comes from the nipple of a soy bean. Veggies make you live forever, and they seem to taste much better. when they're cooked and grown with love. So give a chef who knows what's up a hug. Momma just can't seem to get it, Papa he just rolls his eyes. When I tell them I'm much healthier, they just say that it's all lies. But beans, nuts, fruits and veggies can really fill the belly. Get you vitamins you need, shiny hair and extra speed. Don't take that meat-wich any further, I want a marinated, deep fried, hand-tied mushroom burger. I like it! We gotta stand strong for our feathered furry sometimes scaly animal friends and their little babies. 'Cuz I wouldn't want to live in a cage in a dark warehouse killed at an early age. Pumped full of hormones, sleeping in my feces. Never met my mother, raised by machines. Never get sunshine never get green, but that's just me. [That girl loves fruit leather.] So ask us what we're eating. Delicious and repeating, fruits and veggies are so nice. With a slice of tempeh, yes, I'll have that twice. Don't forget the legumes!"
I personally fell in love with Leslie and the Lys many years ago when my cousin Leah introduced me to her Gem Sweater museum. I have always been a fan of gem sweaters and never thought anyone could take that love to such a level as Leslie. Through her website, I found her music videos and was an instant fan of such classics as "Zombie Killer" and "Tight Pants." Only since Kittee let me know about this new song, did I even know she was vegan! Bonus love!
