I came across something that is too awesome not to share.  Behold, the F.U. Fork:


It’s a thing of beauty, is it not?  I found this gem at Devilstrip Dollys, an “Anti-Gallery” located in Akron, Ohio.  This anti-gallery is filled with unique and one-of-a-kind art pieces made by local artisans- all a little weird, all over-the-top awesome.  The F.U. Fork is a vintage polished silver fork with it’s tines artistically arranged in a not-so-subtle message.  I am in love with this fork.

And, just to be clear, I did not name the F.U. Fork- the artist who made it did.  I just appreciate it ;)

My first thought upon seeing the fork was how the fork really represents my personal rebuttal to the propaganda that’s fed to all of us by big agribusinesses.  I knew immediately that I wanted to use it somehow on YDV, I just didn’t know when or how.

Then I came across this article, 11 signs your vegan diet may have gotten out of control, from Plant Strong Diva Chicago.  It’s another one of those articles that “pokes fun” at vegans (read: mocks) for trying to make the world a better place and is generally filled with nonsense.  It’s not the first of these articles I’ve read and I’m sure it won’t be the last.  It’s one small part of a the larger problem of misinformation/misconceptions about veganism in mainstream society.

Anyway, the article- is it F.U. Fork worthy?  Maybe my new F.U. Fork should serve as the visual part of my rebuttal to articles that….well….deserve the type of response only a F.U. Fork can give.  Maybe.

Do you have some thoughts/ideas for my new F.U. Fork?  I’d love to hear them.  Tell me in the comments.  Let’s talk.
