Idioms like "bringing home the bacon" will be phased out as veganism rises

One academic believes that the English language could be facing big changes. Shareena Hamzah is a postdoctoral researcher for SwanSea University, and she believes that as society progresses off a meat-based diet people might have to stop using phrases that could offend vegans. 

Someone posted a list of terms we all use, followed by ALTERNATE terms that are vegan-friendly and approved by PETA.

1.  Instead of "kill two birds with one stone" . . . say, "feed two birds with one SCONE." 

2.  Instead of "take the bull by the horns" . . . say, "take the flower by the thorns." 

3.  Instead of "there's more than one way to skin a cat" . . . say, "there's more than one way to peel a potato." 

4.  Instead of saying "you let the cat out of the bag" . . . say, "you spilled the beans." 

5.  Instead of saying "be the guinea pig" . . . say, “be the test tube.” 

6.  Instead of saying you "opened a can of worms" . . . say you "opened Pandora's box." 

7.  Instead of keeping "all your eggs in one basket" . . . say you kept "all your berries in one bowl." 

8.  Instead of "beating a dead horse" . . . say, "feeding a FED horse." 

So SHARE if you disapprove of these changes in our language...
