It's true! I'm a vegetarian, and I can't draw....

SkylersDad said...

Turns out all this time I thought I didn't have any talent. Now I find out I'm a vegetarian.

Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry said...

Kids can come up with great excuses, can't they? Wonder where they heard that one!

Mango Girl said...

What the heck are they using to draw with? Pigs blood?

Joanie M said...

Happens to carnivores like me, too. I can't draw worth a damn!

Dang! This post has been up up for 10 whole minutes and there are already 3 comments on it!

Dana's Brain said...

Ha! If I can't draw does that mean I have to be a vegetarian? 'Cause I would really miss bacon.

Lorraine said...

I subbed in a kindergarten class years ago. The assignment was to draw a pumpkin as big as the paper with their orange crayon. One child sat there and cried. When I asked him why he was crying he said he couldn't draw with crayons. He could only draw with the computer. He wasn't allowed to use crayons at home. I think he would have been better off being a vegetarian.

Em said...

LOL! My vegetarian is having "art class" with his big brother right now.

Try the vegetable dye based crayons - the colors are incredible, as well as nutritious.

Writer Dad said...

I can't draw because I'm hypoglycemic

darsden said...

LOL, I can't draw, because I eat too many cookies.

dizzblnd said...

I don't even know what to think about that statement. What was he really trying to say that he could get it mixed up with vegetarian? Oh wait.. he probably doesn't know what a vegetarian is.

Rebecca said...

Well then, I guess they can't draw.
HAHAHHA!

Cowguy said...

I grew up to be a vagitarian. It left me with the inability to put my underwear in the hamper.

*draws nicely*

blognut said...

I can't draw because I have no imagination and my fine motor skills simply suck.

I wish it was 'cause I'm a vegitarian.

Fragrant Liar said...

A HAIRY vegetarian. I am not sure vegetables and hairy stuff go together. Especially in the fridge.

Captain Dumbass said...

Jack needs some bacon, stat!

Sue said...

Thats NO excuse, I'm a vegetarian and have no drawing skills whatsoever!

Desert Songbird said...

There are times when I can't think. What does that make me, I wonder?

WhisperingWriter said...

I probably couldn't do much if I were a vegetarian. I need meat to keep me alert and sane.

ModernMom said...

LOL Does that work? Could I use that for say...cleaning the toilets? I'd give up meat if it got me out of bathroom duty!

Mimi Lenox said...

Being a vegetarian is an excuse for everything these days....

KMcJoseph said...

Animal is delicious!

Mad Texter said...

Ha! As a newly ex-vegetarian, I can relate, but I leave the creativity to writing, and not drawing.

Here's a bit about my own recent vegetarian experience: http://www.madtexter.com/2009/05/after-spending-better-part-of-past.html

Marie Reed said...

I can't draw because I just ate too much birthday cake:)

Marie Reed said...

I just saw practically the exact comment..insert cookies! I get a c minus for creativity:)

Michel said...

Damn! vegetarians have so many rules and regulations! How the hell are we supposed to keep track of that!?!

buffalodick said...

"Are you Bi-lingual? No I just like girls" That kid is the new Yogi Berra...

Tara@Sticky Fingers said...

Right, that's it. I am using that excuse for everything.
And I'm not even a vegetarian.
Wonder if it works for carnivores?
"I can't so that because I'm a carnivore". Hmm not quite got the same ring to it

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Hippie art teachers around the world take offense...

Char said...

Sometimes I wish I was a vegetarian. But not when I have to draw something. It's so inhibiting!

Barrie said...

I can't draw, and I'm an omnivore. I can't run either.

King of New York Hacks said...

Hell , I'm using that line for everything now !! ....You want to go to Brooklyn ??? I'm vegetarian !!! You wan't change of a fifty ??? I'm vegetarian !!! You wan't 5 orgasm's !!....I'll try..and have a burger. LMAO

Lee Ryan said...

Maybe Jack was planning on eatin the paper?

Beth said...

I'm using that excuse tomorrow~

Elaine at Lipstickdaily said...

There you go. I can't sing, I'm a carnivore.

Marinka said...

I should probably become a vegetarian to explain all the things that I can't do!

Marissa said...

I can write with both hands. I'm amphibious.

Maybe Jack meant he was Presbyterian?

Joanie said...

See, that's what happens when you go vegetarian -- you lose all creativity. meat. must. have. it.

Da Goddess

Brenda Susan said...

Do you teach at a comedy school?

Zip n Tizzy said...

Poor cabbage head.

mo.stoneskin said...

You should have given him a vegetarian pencil and a piece of vegetarian paper and told him to get on with it.

peewee said...

Yah! Well, that's why I can't go to work today!

LadyFi said...

Ha ha! I'm a vegetarian and I'll have to try this excuse more often.. Sorry, can't cook/clean today coz I'm a vegetarian...

we_be_toys said...

LOL! Because a carrot might be harmed if the color orange is used?
Too funny1
