So...Apparently Mike Tyson is in talks to open a chain of high-end kosher restaurants. I promise that isn't a story from The Onion, but will likely end up in News of the Weird.
The Original Story
The "Are human ears kosher?" jokes have begun!
I'm excited about anyone wanting to open up a kosher restaurant, and even more excited if a chain is opened! Chains mean they might make it to the smaller Jewish communities of America! I live without kosher restaurants, so I celebrate the opening of any kosher restaurant in the world! I probably wouldn't care about this news story at all if I lived in a larger Jewish community with kosher restaurants. But because I don't, this story makes me very excited. Could one come here? Could one open nearby? How thrilling!
However, since Tyson is involved, I'm guessing these would be vegan restaurants. I'm not a huge fan of vegan food (If I can't have cheese, I'd at least like to enjoy meat! Unless it's sushi!), but I'll take what I can get.
I didn't have a real purpose in writing about this article, but it made me happy. So maybe it'll make you happy too!
The very interesting backstory: Last spring, Mike Tyson adopted a vegan lifestyle and gave a very revealing interview with Details Magazine ("Everything You Think You Know About Mike Tyson Is Wrong"). If you don't like curse words, I suggest not reading this article because Tyson's words are peppered with them quite frequently, but in a very powerful manner. But overall, it's a very disturbing interview.
