There are various {{w|Vegetarianism|vegetarian}} diets which restrict certain foods for ethical or personal concerns. Real vegetarians do not eat any kind of meat, but some only refrain from eating red meat, although this means they are not true vegetarians. Vegetarianism can go as far as to not eating (or even using) any kind of products coming from an animal (i.e. {{w|veganism}}). The comic is a joke on one of the vegetarian rules, namely ''[http://intelligencesquaredus.org/debates/past-debates/item/910-dont-eat-anything-with-a-face don't eat anything with a face]''. This rule is difficult to follow, because it is subjective whether people think a given animal has a {{w|face}}, causing disagreement about what is allowed and what is forbidden to eat.
