Veganism's 1 second of fame

For anyone who DVRs the Big Bang Theory or Two and a Half Men, you may notice the producer, Chuck Lorre's vanity card for the one second it flashes on the screen at the end. Typically a rant at network executives, politicians, or show-biz types and frequently censored, I have to pause and take a minute to read this guy's thoughts on life.

This week's Big Bang Theory VC featured the line "Veganism is the new 'tastes like chicken.'" I thought it was funny.
Dead is the new unambiguous. Bipolar is the new undecided. Heavily armed is the new born again. Bald is the new head... and the new crotch. Hairy is the new face. Sheepishly admitting to having an STD is the new flirting. Purell is the new face of fear. Finding the time that's right for you is the new impotence. The smiley-face emoticon is the new "sincerely yours." Smoking is the new outdoorsy lifestyle. Looking forward to insanely expensive private schooling, thousand dollar a week nannies and soccer is the new yuppie birth control. Misinformed is the new patriotic. Veganism is the new "tastes like chicken." Serotonin uptake inhibiting is the new crowd control. Texting is the new talking. Talking is the new singing. Singing is the new hubris. Gay marriage is the new "be careful what you wish for." And finally, and only because I really need this to catch on, fifty-seven years old is the new forty-five.
