Who eats meat without feet?
Earlier I wrote, "We will soon need a new word for people who eat meat but not animals." Most of the suggestions I got were awful (no, not your suggestion that was great). Seriously, thanks to everyone who wrote. Here are a few that I thought especially interesting.
From Brock Cusick, synthetarian. I like it but I fear that synthetic still has negative connotation and we want a word that will be adopted by those who practice it.
From Chris Rasch, Cultivore, Cultivarian or Ameglians (scroll to Dish of the Day.)
From Travis Corcoran, Soylent-atarians. Also good but a mite obscure.
In the end my choice is for VeggieTechie or VT, as in I’m a VT (also good for putting on restaurant menus). Thus in the hopes of scoring a Google cascade:
Definition: VeggieTechie – a person who eats vegetables and synthetic meat but not meat harvested from an animal.
In the meantime AntiGravitas has another question, Is it cannibalism to eat vat-grown human meat?
