Vegetarianism wasn't like this for me

But I was a vegetarian for nearly eight years, from December 1996 until October 2004 (although I reintroduced fish into the diet starting in 2000). Eight years, which is exactly one-fourth of my total life (I'm 32), and it never looked anything like this (h/t to Salon):

I don't want to be responsible for anyone getting fired).

Anyway, important environmental message vs. wet, naked Cher Horowitz--where would you expect my attention to be?
