Vegetarians and Vegans all over the U.K. are in uproar over the new 5 Pound note that has only just been put into circulation.
Why? you may ask. The new note is stronger, safer, and cleaner. Well, apparently the new notes are made with a trace of tallow, which is derived from…you guessed it, animal fat.

This is just a great reminder that you can’t do anything this day without offending everyone.
