In accord with the Bishops of England and Wales recent move to re-introduce the abstinence from meat rule for Fridays, Mr Fred Bishop of Bishop's Whole & Organic Food Emporium of Chipping Sodbury has come up with the recommendation that vegetarians should abstain from tofu or, in the case of those who suffer from a tofu intolerance, nut cutlets to comply with the Friday rule.
Tofu - off the Friday menu for Vegetarian Catholics!
This news has not been well received by a leading Catholic layman who also happens to be President of the Meat and Sausage Roll Marketing Board, Mr Chris P Crackling who firmly rejects the concept of Catholic vegetarians abstaining from vegetarian food on a Friday. "Us meat eating Catholics have to give up meat and go veggie each week so it's only fair that vegetarians eat a pork chop every Friday as an act of Penance" He told reporters at an impromptu press conference.
"I shall be taking this up with my Bishop at the first opportunity".


  1. Love it!
    Thanks for making me laugh.

  2. This post urgently needs a 'like' button.
    Great idea.

  3. We loved this blog-post! and what to give up on Friday has caused us some problems (we are a Vegetarian Mother and daughter)but we will not be eating meat on Friday as a penance,(my husband also made this suggestion!)We have decided to just have vegetables and potatoes, no soya sausages or Linda McCartney pies etc ,neither of us likes nut cutlets or tofu by the way, they are disgusting.

  4. This is great! Thanks for the laugh: no more tofurkey on Fridays!


  5. Meat should not be eaten by vegetarians they would be involved in sinning. Killing animals is a sin.

    "Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. 30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food." And it was so."
