Of all sad vegan meals, this has to be one of the most pathetic.
While the fast food industry has made strides in accommodating vegan customers, the dessert world leaves quite a bit to be desired.
Just take it from a Twitter user named Yasmin, who went out for her birthday dinner only to receive an extremely anticlimactic treat to close out the night. "I went out for my birthday and I'm vegan so they gave me a single slice of banana instead of cake," she captioned, attaching a photo of the hilariously desolate plate. Sure enough, the restaurant gave her a single sliver of a banana, topped with one candle and a haphazardly-scribed "Happy Birthday" in chocolate syrup.

For nearly a year, I adhered to a fully vegan diet and never encountered anything quite as humiliating as this pathetic excuse for a treat (although I did have french fries for dinner on a few occasions). But it somehow gets worse; Yazmin followed up the travesty with an account of her actual birthday, on which she went to Olive Garden and was given a plate. Just a plate. No banana slice.
went to olive garden to celebrate on my actual bday :) no banana this time though. just a plate LOL https://t.co/paZ4lZdcf9— Yazmin ⓥ (@Yazmin ⓥ)1576119250.0
Believe it or not, Yazmin isn't alone. As the tweet went viral, fellow vegans of the Internet began responding with similar stories of miserable desserts, including but not limited to: a cup of ice with a cherry on top, a half-peeled orange with a candle, and a "fruit salad" of just two grapes and one strawberry.

This is especially baffling to me considering that vegan desserts aren't nearly as difficult as you may think. Although these restaurants should be applauded for at least trying to accommodate, baked goods free of animal byproducts are easier than they seem, as a user named @QueenDorkula pointed out.

But even if these restaurants don't have the means to create special vegan desserts, Oreos are vegan. At least give the lady a damn cookie (they're cheaper than bananas these days, anyway).
There's a big problem with the trailer for Morbius, Sony's upcoming Marvel outing that is definitely not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe even though it has Michael Keaton reprising his role as Vulture (please let us keep our license, Disney!).
See if you can spot it.

If you answered, "Sampling Beethoven's 'Für Elise' to line up with blue-tinted action shots is the absolute lowest effort, brain-dead attempt to signify 'gothic vampire movie' in the entire history of movie trailers," you're correct, but that's still not the biggest problem with Morbius. No, the biggest problem is that Morbius is played by Jared Leto.
The best thing about movies is that sometimes they feature cats.
Cats are great. They are furry purr-boxes that usually hate you. Whether they're the hero, the villain, or just kind of there, nothing beats watching a movie and seeing a cat on-screen. So we've compiled a list of the best REAL cats in movies. That means the movie needs to feature a REAL cat instead of an animated cat, because otherwise this would just be a list of cartoon cats. These cats are REAL, and they're works of art:
