Mutts has been one of my favorite comic strips for a long time, and the artist (Patrick McDonnell) is a supporter of numerous animal and environmental groups.

He's also vegetarian and was interviewed last year by Vegetarian Times.

When asked why he became a vegetarian, he responded:

Why not be vegetarian? That's the question.

I've used that line before when asked why I'm a vegetarian. I ask them "why not"? Makes people think sometimes, although it also invites the whole " becuase they're tasty" rant. I usually let tell them that they're probably pretty tasty as well, however, I don't think I should enslave them in a factory farm and then kill them so that I can feast on their corpse.
