The last time some clown sounded off with that line in my presence, I
asked if science were to develop the proper tools and then actually
determine that fruits and vegetables do, indeed, have a "face," would he
then do us the favor of starving himself to death.

Most of the vegetarians who say things like that are being deliberately
off-putting and adversarial. They clearly do not understand how to win
friends and influence people. They deserve whatever slap in the face you
care to deliver.
