Stephen Colbert Eats Bacon in Front of Vegan Author Johnathan Safran Foer

And I still love him.

Foer, author of Eating Animals (currently on my “to read” list) went on The Colbert Report to talk about the new book and did a great job going head to head with the likes of Colbert.  He was able to get in a lot of good information on the state of our farming system and how bad it is for the animals and for us (without coming off as a douchy vegan fanatic).  Of course it didn’t stop Stephen from using bacon as a bookmark in the book, but would we expect any less?  It was awesome to see a vegan author on such a mainstream show.

I tried to embed the video here, but it isn’t working.  You can watch it on Colbert Nation.
