We at Voracious like to think of ourselves as a breaking-news kind of food blog, so we’ve been typing furiously just to inform you: Not only has PETA posted the finalists of its “Sexiest Vegetarian" contest . . . one of them is from Seattle.
Coulter Leslie, 35, is a Seattleite who loves Mighty O donuts and passing out anti-fur brochures. But he’s only one of 20 hot-bodied heath nuts who were chosen from a field of 700.
I’ve gotten myself all worked up just reading through their profiles. I can’t tell if it was the hayfever pill I swallowed this morning, or if my acid reflux is just acting up, but my own hot bod seems to be reacting viscerally to quotes like
Ali went vegetarian when she was 4 after she cut into a piece of chicken flesh, saw blood, and realized that she was eating an animal. Now Ali is a vegan and urges all her friends to ditch meat.
...or from our very own local boy made good (congrats, Coulter!):
I love knowing that I’m saving more than 100 animals a year simply by not eating them, and I love that every time I speak to someone and they go vegetarian, I’ve just saved a hundred more.
If you think one of these vegetarians deserves a special profile on PETA's GoVeg.com and a trip for two to Hawaii for being self-righteous, I mean a sizzlin’ hot hunk of animal flesh, it’s time to rock the vote!
