Smog is Not the Prob in Portlandia

You'd be surprised at the quality menu items in this establishment.

You’d be surprised at the quality menu items in this establishment.

Did you know that Portland is the most vegan-friendly city in the Universe on the Planet in America?

You do now.

Did you know that the health benefits of a vegan diet are too numerous to mention because:

  1. let’s face it, you have the attention span of camera shutter set on “burst mode”Β because of all the sugar you just consumed.
  2. I have way better things to do than copy and paste an entry from Wikipedia.

Did you know that there are some, oh, interesting consequences to a vegan diet? It’s best if you watch this two-minute video.

Let’s just say:

  1. I’ve been to this restaurant.
  2. I wish I had known about their “special” patio.
  3. Do not attempt vegan or raw food diets without first consulting anyone you love and with whom you wish to maintain a dignified relationship.

Hope this and every day is a happy, healthy, comfortable one!

  1. It was awesome! Hahahaha

  2. Yup. I definitely live in Rome. πŸ˜‰

  3. Well, it’s kind of implied…in the air, if you will. 😐

  4. I saw it and was chuckling about it for a week after. That was my sign that I had to post it! Glad you got a laugh from it! ❀

  5. There’s no other way it could be! πŸ˜‰

  6. Ah, Portland…. keep it wierd…

  7. This had me rolling! Hahahaha

  8. Yes, nobody ever tells you about the gas when they pitch the benefits of a vegan diet. Vegan evangelists should have to start with that.

  9. Thank you for the good advice Lorna… it makes life easier if others experiment first !

  10. We have a saying here in the south, “Better to let it rip and bear the shame than to hold it in and bear the pain.”

    In ancient Rome, public flatulence was not only legal (by order of the Emperor) but encouraged. When in Rome . . . .

  11. Good! πŸ™‚

  12. Blazing Saddles comes to mind, both made me laugh… πŸ˜‰

  13. Very punny, Peter! Thank you. I had a lovely, quiet holiday. And I wish you all good things every day of every year! ❀

  14. No one could you accuse you of writing a long-winded post here, or writing something it is hard to digest, but as always it is full of your lovely humour and gentleness. I hope you had a great Christmas and I wish you every happiness for 2017 x πŸ™‚

  15. ❀

  16. So appreciate you. πŸ˜™

  17. Lol!! Exactly!!!!

  18. I wish you wouldn’t take life so seriously, Lorna. Ha Ha. Just farting around. Well, actually, I’m not, because I’m not vegan. In many ways I wish I was – it’s a discipline I’m unable to attain. But then again, I prefer clean air… πŸ™‚
    Happy New Year my blogging friend. Always fun to visit you here. xo

  19. I’m starting to do the rounds again of blog visits, and on my first visit to you in a while I find farts. Farts! I would expect nothing less… πŸ™‚

  20. Love you more! πŸ™‚ ❀

  21. You like the sound of train whistles, huh?

  22. There you go again, reeling me in with that most magical of all sounds…..

  23. What did you say, Al? I couldn’t hear you over all the noise, what with the train whistles and the farting…

  24. Oh, V. I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. I’m sending you oodles of love and a big hug.

    I’ve been busy editing a rather long book. It’s the first in a trilogy. The author is already writing the next book, so I’m taking advantage of this time to catch up with my “peeps” here on WP. Miss you, Sweetie! ❀

  25. Chair cushions and long walks on a very windy beach!!!

  26. It works fine for me, but I wouldn’t want to be starting a new relationship. Oy! The pain of holding the gas in! πŸ˜‰

  27. Raw foodβ€”music the way nature intended!! πŸ˜‰

  28. Good way to end the year, Lorna! I don’t eat meat, but perhaps not ready for this yet. I’ll take your words of warning to heart πŸ˜‰

  29. Vegan is not for me, but all power to those who manage it, if it works for you πŸ™‚

  30. Lol!! Happy holidays!! And eating vegetables is the reason why god invented chair cushions right?

  31. No, never! Namaste, Lorna. πŸ™‚ xo

  32. So glad to “see” you, Lorna. The last part of 2016 was challenging for me with the loss of Mom and all the “business of dying” that ensues and isn’t over yet. I forget what rest is. I needed this laugh, and an excuse not to go vegan. Be well and happy New Year. Your blog fell off my follow list again.

  33. Thanks Lorna. πŸ™‚

  34. Our wedding will be the grandest celebration in Utah since the railroads joined at Promontory Point!

  35. Meet me in Utah, Big Guy. I’ll be the blonde with the kale stuck in her teeth. πŸ€₯😍

  36. I just started watching Portlandia and saw this sketch. I was on the floor laughing so much. The food in this restaurant is really good. It’s just a block or two away from Powell (that little book store)!πŸ€₯

  37. Good one! The food there is very good and filling in more ways than one..😲 Happy New Year!

  38. Can never have too many laughs, huh? 😜 Namaste Gayle. πŸ’•

  39. Thanks for the laugh, Lorna, only in Oregon. May the coming New Year bring you health, happiness, prosperity and all good things! xo

  40. LOLLLLLLLLL Lorna, this was hilarious! Happy New Year to you! Hope this restaurant doesn’t take all the wind out of your sails! LOLLLLLLL ❀

  41. LMAO … oh my … a definite classic post about being vegan (which I am not).

  42. A post about farting ! Lorna, you really know the way to a guy’s heart! I love you! Marry me!

  43. Love the video! It reminds me of an adventure with my granddaughter this summer that I think will make you laugh, too. (


  45. Vegan couldn’t possibly be an option for me. I need that patio normally…

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
