Donderdag Veggiedag Durbledag Greeniedag Daggiedaggiedo

BBC NEWS | World | Europe | Belgian city plans 'veggie' days
The Belgian city of Ghent is about to become the first in the world to go vegetarian at least once a week.
Starting this week there will be a regular weekly meatless day, in which civil servants and elected councillors will opt for vegetarian meals.

"Opt" as freely choose, of course not. And can we all guess why they are being forced to forgo the horse sandwich?

The UN says livestock is responsible for nearly one-fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions, hence Ghent's declaration of a weekly "veggie day".
Schoolchildren will follow suit with their own veggiedag in September...


Hmm, if "opt for" means the employer/government rather than the individual could someone like me sue? I am allergic to most greens. Not exactly life-threatening, the reaction is mostly violent spasms ejecting them from the system rather than anaphylactic shock, but others are no doubt even more at-risk.
