Gorgeous Frank Tufano is a carnivore who makes videos mocking the vegan diet—the diet that Occasional Cortex wants to make compulsory as part of her Green New Deal. He long ago latched on to the fact that vegans in particular "speak" in that airhead, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting style of emission—laced with "like," oh my god," "I'm so totally," "guys" and all the other fatuities of moronnialspeak—which, as an infallible marker of civilisation's tragic decline, so exercises me.
