Upside down cross… GASP! It’s as I always feared!
(Hat tip: @NamelessCynic on the Twitters)
Any devout (ex-)Catholic could tell you that is a cross of Saint Peter. Now here is a naughty crucifix.

Oh, Mr. Blair, that is the Jackhammer Jesus, from Divine Interventions! It (and them) have been a regular feature of the blog since 2006!
You should see the Apostles, hubba-hubba!
Flesh of my flesh, blood of …
True the upside down cross was what is reportedly done to Saint Peter. Horrible idea, but they weren’t trying to be quick with death back then, you have to understand. It remains some kind of ‘shame’, not sure why. But, to associate it with “vegans”, I’m just not sure about that. Two of my adult daughters are vegan and my wife is vegetarian. I feel no remorse there except when the smell of my BBQing Beef bothers their sensibilities.
Reportedly, and I believe it because Xian’s are always looking to be the biggest victim, Peter requested to be crucified upside down because he was unworthy of dying as his lord did.
He probably died faster that way, too. Or at least lost consiousness almost immediately.
Crucifition was a slow, horribly painful way to die, which is why the Romans used it on their subject populations, but mandated beheading of Roman citizens.
“Hail Seitan” — I see what you did there. Nice.
I stole it, of course. Whenever I see it on a menu (Hello, Seattle!) I say it under my breath. TBH, I actually kind of like it.
TG — I switched to vegetarian a couple of years ago, and had never heard of seitan before that. It’s one of my go-to meat substitutes. 🙂
I just Googled seitan. One description of it is “wheat meat.”
