I personally laugh at all of those pudgy douche bag commercials like that, truck commercials, and anything else that tries to exploit my masculinity to purchase crap because I think it will make me more manly. But to the 90% of this country(and others) who are nothing more than sheep, it subconsciously does the trick.

i have read it in several places. he is listed in international vegetarian union list of vegetarian sports personalties as well as wikipedia's list of vegetarian athletes.
also if you look here in the NNDB it list his "risk factor" being vegetarian.
it is often listed in the trivia about him, as in tv.com'swebsite.
as i mentioned earlier, has a recipe in the PETA Celebrity Vegetarian cookbook, along side well estbalished vegetarians like Alicia Silverstone and Sir Paul Mcaurtney. i dont' know of anyone else who is in that book that isn't vegetarian. click here and read the 3rd paragraph down.
it is in several of his online bios.

here is a quote from him from veg.tv website.
“I eat fruits and vegetables with every meal. I’d say 75% of my diet are vegetables. Fruit (I eat) 24/7 … like finger food.”

and he's made no secret of his love for animals. on his website he has links to The Humane Society, Animal Rescue Foundation and Casa Canine.

if he does end up being one of thos kevin eubanks "i'm vegetarian but still eat fish" type of guys, i'm gonna be the most pissed off because i keep telling everyone about it.

I don't get the "risk factor" thing on that one site - risk of what? ??

The complete list of veggies on that site is pretty awesome. Some of my favorite singers and some of the most beautiful women on the planet.

Even if the burger is vegan, you just can't give a company like Burger King money. It's like giving the Israeli's some grenades and saying "I know where some militants might just be, lets go blow up their village!". Socially irresponsible.

I've read that the Burger King veggie burger has NEVER been vegan, that there always was some whey in the bun, or something (so one could get one with no bun, I suppose, but there may be something in the burger itself as well).

I tried one once, and it may or may not have been vegan, but it was quite a vile creation with a processed white bun (with who knows what chemicals and additives and 'non-foods').

honestly, i don't understand that either. risk factors is usually where they put smoking or alcoholic. it's where they should put "chronic meat eater". i don't know why they consider being vegetarian a risk factor. i guess they think it is an extreme lifestyle.
