A person that does not consume, use, or wear any animal by products for many reasons including:
~humans are the only animal that continue to drink milk after weaned of their mother's
~growth hormones that are injected into cows and chickens are then consumed by humans
~they just don't like milk or meat
~they have allergies
~the idea of eating the result of a chickens period is not pleasant
~those appetizing limp greasy Whoppers don't appeal to them

And more. People, who feel guilty for eating meat but are too weak to give it up, often refer to them as Nazi's. However, most vegans don't think down upon people that eat meat.
Omnivore: Do you like chocolate?
Herbivore: No, I'm vegan.
Omnivore: Oh, so you think I am a meat eating pig who enjoys animal cruelty, just a jerk who desrves to die because I won't chain myself to a tree to save a forest?
Herbivore: That is just a common misconception. I don't think that way about anyone except for bush. Let's go to the movies.
Omnivore: Sounds good!

Will not eat meat or use any products from animals.

Usually a college hippy or a pompous Hollywood celebrity. They love to point out their diet is so health even though they're 5'11" and weight 100lbs.

They tend to get appalled or preachy if you so much mention that you eat meat.
Vegan - Oh, I'm so glad your not eating meat anymore (sees bag of grain)

Huh?..that bag of grain is bait for deer as it's gun season tomorrow (pumps fist)

An idealistic person whose idea comes off as noble (or so they hope) but really is impratical. They fail to realize that harvesting crops always kills free animals that are caught in the combines that collect their veggies and fruit. Regardless of this obvious fact (which is supported by several university studies) vegans tend to be holier-than-thou bunch with a small minority of polite and tactful people. Vegans will often support terrorist groups such as PeTA and ALF/ELF and claim the end justifies the means. Nevermind PETA officers have been caught with lots of leather shoes and belts and PETA euthanizes thousands of animals a year. It's what "in" right now for idealistic college students who have life pretty good. Veganism is generally not what one would consider healthy or natural, nor is the current trend of high meat consumption, but you need meat and dairy in your diet. Veganism also opposes genetically engineered food, claiming it is unnatural to create food that is better suited to survive the harsh climate of drought and help ease world hunger. Idealism beats Realism, right?
Joe being a vegan, asked the waitor at a MEXICAN restraunt if they cooked their beans with pork. When he was given the obvious answer of "Si!" he scoffed and tried to educate the ignorant brown man about veganism. The Mexican guy ignored the stupid gringo and rubbed his pubes on Joe's food for being an arsehole (real life experience).

Slang for something/someone that is really foolish, or really amazing. A Swank, or Third Level.
Stop messing around, your such a Vegan!

That movie was Vegan awsome!

One who insists that their diet is more ethical, despite the fact that millions of animals are killed every year in the adding of insecticide to and harvesting of their food.
Will someone shut this vegan up?

Someone who refuses to either eat or wear anything derived from an animal. Not necessarily any less healthy than your typical omnivore—contrary to popular belief, you can get protein from some plants—but not necessarily any more so.

Also not inherently self-righteous...but altogether too many of them are.
"You can preach veganism at me all you want...but I'm not giving up chicken strips, silk shirts, or leather boots. Get over it."
ayon kay Qit ika-21 ng Enero, 2004
hippies, with enough free time to read the label on everything they eat.
vegan= "is there eggs in bread...?"
