Timeline of important events in this man’s life:

Some vegans take offense, everyone else roll eyes and ignore chef’s bullshit comments, life goes on.
2008 – Pissed vegans submit recipes with the cruelty removed to Hezbollah Tofu instead of going to “bookstores drawing giant penises on [his] book covers with Sharpies”.
? – eBook compilation of HT recipes with penis doodled on cover raises funds for various animal charities in Bourdain’s name. Vegans win.
?? – In alternative universe, Bourdain sees opportunity for profit and opens veg*n restaurant. Writes sequel to memoirs. It doesn’t sell, everybody knows he ripped his vegan cupcake recipes off the Post Punk Kitchen.
