DEC 9, non-sequitur: communitarian dinners


Modern dinners with groups communitarian

Include options both vegan and vegetarian,

'Tho some find it contrary,

Offering eggs, gluten, dairy,

All agree, best avoid serving carrion;

And, rebuff all meat-eaters barbarian!

Dr G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2023

Authors' Note:
As pointed out by Janet McConnaughey, an OEDILF assistant editor, the term dinner, the principal meal of the day, can be used in several connotations, including assemblies of civic groups over a periodic organizational meal.

The communitarians were philosophically oriented writers arising in Britain in the 19th century, whose utopian ideas incorporated 
socialism, collectivism, and experimentation with communal living. Whether they had organizational meetings over meals, and the specific foods served, are unrecorded details; one imagines that most such thinkers would avoid eating meat, and would likely be vegans or vegetarians.

Our collection of 'Non-Sequiturs' on our parent blog "Edifying Nonsense", contains an admittedly bizarre assortment of nonsensical odds-and-ends, that don't quite fit into other topic-based offerings. But should you want to review the entire collection, click HERE.
