Like most superheroes, Dr. Thug of Thug Kitchen goes by an alias to protect his true identity. From what, we are not sure, since his aggressively-pro-vegetables stance seems to be loved, if not universally, at least by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and... well... us.

We seriously couldn't agree more, as you probably already know based on how frequently we say things like, "calm down! We all have to eat food!" And although we do love our grilled cheeses and organ meats and chocolate desserts, we also recognize and appreciate how dramatically better we feel when we eat some fucking vegetables (sorry, we couldn't help it).
