Being vegan isn't for the fainthearted. You have to get up at half past dark to milk the almonds, eat lentils at least twice a day (or risk having your membership revoked), wear hemp everything, and constantly come up with creative ways to use up aquafaba. It's exhausting.
As a longtime vegan myself (there, I told you), I've found that the one thing this lifestyle needs above all else (even tofu) is a good dollop of levity. The best way to achieve that? Don't take yourself too seriously, and arm yourself with a decent cache of vegan jokes.
I scoured the interwebs, trawled Reddit, and even swung by Tumblr (gasp) to find the really good ones. Grab a kombucha and some kale chips (with extra nooch if you’re feeling it), and get ready to laugh your plant-based buns off.
