Paleo guerilla?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 18, 2011 at 9:38 AM

Today I heard a strange, funny but interesting story on the news. Apparently somebody, maybe a group of people have done the following. They took breads out of an automatic bread vending machine, and replaced it with vacuum packed animal heart meat. This was not the first time they did this. For those who read dutch, here is the story

Everybody things this is some kind of joke, probably a sick joke made by mentally sick people.

My immediate thought was: 'well, apparently I'm not the only one in Belgium who thinks paleo is the way to go.' Finally some kind of strange benefactor, probably masked and leaving bacon trails, is giving the people meat instead of bread!!!

Have you seen or heard similar stories, that with your paleo goggles on, you interpreted differently then the rest?

Or have you been doing paleo guerilla? Maybe you are the PaleoMan?

Brad, I'm with you, I don't think guerilla techniques are fine, I don't even like preaching! Except if it was very tongue in cheeck. I'll keep you posted on the real reason behind the story, if the police find something. Probably just silly joke.

This guy, the musician named "Paleo": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleo When I first heard of him I assumed there was a connection. It seems there isn't. But he's still the third google result for "paleo." Maybe he'll change his diet soon.

I read it that way too, Pieter. I think it's because of the line from Pink Floyd's The Wall, from "The Trial": "fills me with the urge to ..."

Jules, for one second I read: 'I had the urge to defecate their signs about the food pyramid'. I wonder what Freud would have made of my mind...

We have a monthly "donut Friday" at the office. I actually have brought in a plate of bacon to enjoy while everyone ate their donuts.

I wish I could add to this post, but I have not heard of any such story! I do remember laughing to myself when my boss was trying to poison me when she gave me a slice of cake at the last office celebration. (they all know I eat Paleo) I figured I was being dramatic with my paleo goggles on. I also wondered how everyone would have reacted if I had brought in a plate of bacon instead of cake...

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I hope it's not true. Why? Because it reminds me of the type of "guerilla" crap that I often hear about from the vegan/PETA side of things. I don't want us to turn into that.

Last year there was an explosion of graffiti around my city by someone with the tag "MEAT SLICE." There is even a facebook group dedicated to photographing it. Of course I secretly hope it is an absurdist paleo bandit, although I realize it probably isn't.

Also, back in college, my two friends spent their graduation day running around (intoxicated I'm sure) screaming "MEAT!!" at the top of their lungs and supergluing luncheon meats to windows all over campus, an action which got them banned for life from school grounds. It was the last in a series of ongoing "hey let's piss off the dumb vegetarian hippies at our dumb hippy school in Vermont" actions that they pulled off--others included having an event that consisted of eating pounds of super rare meat while watching slasher films and running an illegal hot dog cart at odd hours. I was vegan at the time but appreciated the whole thing immensely, other than the smell of the rotting baloney in the hot summer sun glued to my dorm room window. While not paleo guerrillas, per se, they were close.

I was in a non-crowded hospital cafeteria on Christmas, and had the urge to deface their signs about the food pyramid and going vegetarian as a new year's resolution. I told myself "no don't be silly/crazy," and went about my business (i.e. piling my plate with bacon and eggs). A tip o the hat to the Belgian bread bandit though- that is a trip!
