3. Weird Al Yankovich
He is reputed to have said this when asked why he became vegetarian, “Many years ago I found out something about hamburgers that really grossed me out. You may not know this, so I hope I don’t make you sick, but it turns out hamburgers are actually made out of dead cows. I am not making this up. Needless to say, as soon as I discovered that, I gave up meat entirely.” (Source: thisdishvegetarian)
