Pumpkin Eggnog Martyrdom

Posted By I Love Pumpkins on November 15, 2008

This is lunch.

Heed my call, martyrs. This is lunch.

Willingness to sacrifice oneself for a religious or political cause has long been recognized as a key measure of an activist’s commitment. Today I am sacrificing myself by having Pumpkin Eggnog for lunch. With 210 calories and 9 grams of fat (and a lot of dark rum) how could I have anything else?

To you, my supporters, my sacrifice likely amounts to martyrdom, whereas critics are more likely to view it as a triumph of irrational extremism. Over time, Pumpkin Lovers, you will learn to tune out those critics. Don’t let them stop you!

Several religious traditions expect that devoted followers will willingly risk their lives in defense of the faith. I do not ask you to risk your lives, Pumpkin Lovers. But I do ask you to risk your usual breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever possible, in favor of Pumpkin Foods.

Your friends, your family… they may not understand you. But I understand you and we Pumpkin Lovers understand each other. We will support one another until we can precipitate positive change in this society!

You and I.... Soldiers of Change.

You and I.... Soldiers of Change.
