Vegans Fall Out Over Gretaburger

People are calling out the "tone deaf" decision of Australian restaurant Lazy Gramps to name one of their burgers the ‘Greta Thunburger’.

The plant-based burger’s description on Uber Eats says it’s "full of hot air, light on facts and high in carbon monoxide".

It also says "you ruined my meat", a reference to Greta Thunberg’s 2019 speech to the UN in which she said "you have stolen my childhood with your empty words".

I’m sure we could think of other things to name after St Greta!

    The Independent. Where else could you get comment like “Of course there’s also the fact that she’s consistently proved absolutely right by scientists on the terrifying reality of climate change.”

      In the same journal where there’s a story about Beethoven actually being black! Nuff said.

    The song “American Pie” (1971) by Don McLean “is an abstract story surrounding “The Day the Music Died” – the 1959 plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper (Giles Perry Richardson, Jr.).”

    We need a “Day that Humor Died.”
    Cartoons and jokes seem more mean than comical.

    Perhaps readers can contribute a date and reason that we are no longer treated to funny things.

      Not sure where you live, but in the USA, I’d put it with Bush the Second and intensified with Trump and TDS. Since Trump was elected, humor is 100% outlawed.

    Too many people have no sense of humor. LOLROTF. Sounds right to me.

    Shame it wasn’t a pork skewer – then it could have been called: ‘Greta the pork sword’

    I’m reminded of the Hillary Special at Kentucky Fried Chicken:

    Two thick thighs, two small breasts, and a left wing.

      But it was Monica Lewinski that Bill found “finger lickin’ good”.

    I’m disappointed. It should have been called Greta’s porky burger!

    Don’t these ‘green’ climate activists understand that ALL animal food, even gretaburgers, comes from CO2 plus water plus solar energy. When eaten, the oxygen from that sequestered carbon energy returns that CO2 back to where it came from. There is no free lunch of gretaburgers…unless they bury tons of them away from oxidative respiration…and provide a coupon for a discount on the next one.:)

    The giant 64m long fatberg found in a sewer under Sidmouth could be renamed the Gretaberg as it was full of all sorts of crap.

    Could have called it the ‘Greater Fun Burger’, then it would have no connection to the waste of oxygen at all.

    Haven’t heard from our favourite hormonal babe for some time now. I wonder if she’ self isolating in a psychiatric ward somewhere.

    Joking aside, I do think she has passion, manipulated massively by others, that really should be directed to what most other girls do at her age. Get a fella Greta and use that passion on him. Maybe take him out to Lazy Gramps and get a free burger, and maybe laugh a bit.

      Note the researcher honoring her has discovered 400 new spider species in 20 years. Extinction alarmists be aware!
