When one discovers, Vegan Nation, that intense pain emanating from a terribly rotten hip can be eased with the assistance of a cane, incredibly awful visions of walking sticks come to mind. You know, the adjustable metal things with blue handles. Oh, dear lord, please no! The Stylish Vegan with a standard issued hospital endorsed cane? No way, Joe! Hell no, Jose!
After a minor freak out, as TSV is sometimes prone, Mr. Internet offered a fab solution: fashionablecanes.com! Who knew? So after sifting through the sensational site, TSV ordered, received and is now proudly donning, this beauty:
Gorgeous, si? The site is great, it allows you to not only choose your styling stick but makes them to size. Handy instructions on how to measure make it oh so easy to get a gorgeous cane that’s not only practical but an accessory to die for as well! And it only took a awfully arthritic hip to bring it to my doorstep.
And in case you are wondering, VegHeads, it’s 1000% vegan and not tested on any animals. No cats, no dogs, no zebra, nothing. Oh, and lest TSV forgets, it’s an amazing weapon of self-defense. Believe me, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of a wicked swing of this baby!
So there you have it, Veganistos, pain and suffering can have a beautifully fashionable result. Problem is, once the recovery is complete, TSV isn’t going to want to toss this in the closet never to be seen again. I guess the other hip has to go at some time.
Hey, VegHeads, TSV hasn’t thrown out a VegNews Frivolous Celeb of the Day in an eternity. Well enough of that noise, we have a winner today. From our dear friends at ecorazzi.com we learned the following:
“Bono Rails Against $700 Billion For Wall Street, But No Billions For Fighting Disease, Hunger”. Well, Mr. Bono, just so happens TSV knows a thing or two about how Wall Street works and I’m venturing to guess probably about 100 times more than Sonny.
TSV understands your frustration, pal, but you aren’t seeing the big picture here. This “$700 billion for Wall Street” is actually for every person in this country and, I will be so bold to say, many around the world. You see, Bono, the banking system in the U.S. of A. is on the verge of total collapse. How does that affect us, not you, I’m assuming your dough is stashed in some off shore account? If this money doesn’t come through to stem, not to fix, just to shore up the banking system, Joe Public may go to his bank next week to get money and it ain’t going to be there.
This is serious, serious shit, BoneHead. Much more serious than most understand. This money needs to buy this toxic paper or we are in a gigantic boatload of hurt. And those diseased and hungry you speak of? Well, there will be plenty of them right here in the homeland if no assistance is forthcoming.
Bono, a lesson from TSV: Don’t go spouting off shit when you don’t understand it. Not only does it make you look incredibly foolish, but it’s not going to help you sell records in your now stagnant career!
