I would be amazed if the "sugar and beef" lyric was not tongue-in-cheek. Were it
a little less obvious, I might have taken them for their word, but I thought
about it a while ago and really, you would DIE on sugar and beef. So yeah, I'm
with you on that. Not sure if it's a McDonald's ref, but it certainly could be.

BTW, I'm basically vegan also but I decided I would prefer not to enter this
conversation considering two vegans named juli(ae)n may be a little too
overwhelming. :)
