What's the hardest thing about being vegan?
Is it staring into the dark abyss of human indifference to animal suffering? For some, it may be giving up cheese, or eating out with omni friends and family.
For YouTuber Mic the Vegan, it is something quite different...
Mic made a video to explain what he finds most difficult about veganism. In it, he says: "What's the hardest part about being a vegan? Let me think about this for a second."
The film shows him dressing in jeans and wellies and striding through the countryside. He then says: "It's getting up at 4am to milk the almonds...
"Or forcibly impregnating the almonds so they keep producing milk. Yeah, I think that's actually the hardest part."
Watch the hilarious video to see Mic sweat his way through an almond milking session. It may change your thoughts on veganism forever.
