The
trailer for the new action flick Escape Plan includes an especially silly scene in which Arnold Schwarzenegger sneers at costar
Sylvester Stallone and says, “You hit like a vegetarian.”

But
what is intended as a withering put-down is actually a compliment. After all,
Germany’s strongest man, Patrik
Baboumian
, is a vegan, as are professional arm-wrestlers Rob Bigwood and Big Bald Mike.

And
I guess the creator of that bon mot doesn’t follow mixed martial
arts fighting, or he or she wouldn’t have risked incurring the wrath of these
guys:


If
anybody thinks that vegetarians don’t pack a punch, I challenge him or her to
say that to the face of lifelong vegetarian and champion of last week’s UFC Fight Night 29Jake Shields


How long do you think Arnie and
Sly would last in a cage with vegan King of the Cage
World Champion Mac Danzig?

UFC
fighter Aaron Simpson hits animal experimenters “like a vegetarian” in
PETA’s wildly popular Cage
Fight
video game.

Or maybe I’m being overly sensitive, and Escape Plan‘s screenwriters were actually making a sly reference to
PETA’s pie-throwing prowess.


You
hit like a giant chicken carrying a tofu cream pie.

Hit like a vegetarian? You’d
better hope your opponent doesn’t hit like a vegetarian—or you might wind up
with cauliflower ear.
