Luke Walker and the Hypothetical Question

  1. Is this a variation of the “A rabbi, a priest and a nun are stranded on a desert island with a chicken” joke? 🙂

    Kidding. Although, I do have a question for those who visit relatives – as in, my case, heavy carnivore relatives (whom I love dearly) but anyway, how do you handle this situation without coming off as a primadonna…….?


    • Well, if you were in a situation like this it would have been provoked by the questioner, not you, and you can only answer honestly. You shouldn’t be blamed for out-thinking the questioner, as Luke did, but you probably would so you can’t win! If someone is trying to catch you out it is only because you make them feel defensive or guilty just be being veg*n, never mind talking about it, which is not your fault either. At the end of the day, whatever you do, they will probably think you are being a primadonna if that’s where they’re coming from. I’ve never found a way around it 😀


    • Thanks Carmen, but I can’t take credit for the idea as I read a post a while ago by an American (I think) vegan celebrity chef who said he was sick of such hypothetical questions inventing scenarios that wouldn’t happen, saying, as Luke does here, what if there were an abundance of plant foods … I thought it was brilliantly put and, for some reason, was reminded of it this week and decided to make something of it. Sadly, I can’t remember his name.

    • Yes I think so. I read an excerpt of a post by a vegan celebrity chef some months ago (sadly can’t remember the name) and he was saying something similar. It just came back to me this week and I thought I’d do something with it 🙂
