Paul Woodall, from York, pranked his daughter by sending a picture of the meat alternative in his freezer along with a message that read: “Pack your things and leave my house.”
A meat-loving dad asked his daughter to pack her bags and leave his house after he found packets of Quorn- “the vilest thing he’s ever tasted”- stocked at home.
Paul Woodall sent his daughter a picture of the meat alternative in his freezer along with a message that read: “Pack your things and leave my house.”
The next message said: “Being gay is fine no problem, being a little cow most of your life, I can live with that.
“But this is beyond forgiveness”.
Just a prank
Woodall’s daughter Hollie Woodall recently stopped eating meat after a chicken meal led to a serious food poisoning event.
The bar manager from North Yorkshire is currently following a pescatarian diet and hopes to slowly transition to a vegan lifestyle.
While Hollie admitted that the messages stunned her initially, she soon realised it was just another prank by her boisterous dad.
“The Wi-Fi was bad and the first picture didn’t load so all I saw was ‘pack your things and leave immediately’ and I was like ‘what?’ and then it loaded and I was just in hysterics,” the 34-year-old said.
“As soon as he sent it to me I screenshotted it and posted it because I thought it was hilarious – I was just sat at work howling.
“My dad is just a joker and takes the mick out of me for everything – we’re always winding each other up and stuff.”
‘Trying to get into being vegan’
She added: “I’ve been dieting since November and lost over two stone and have been finding ways to get more protein that isn’t meat, as I’m trying to get into being vegan.
“My dad doesn’t understand all that, he’s old school and just takes the mick.”
‘Vilest thing ever tasted’
Commenting on the joke, the 58-year-old said: “I’m a meat lover and a big beef fan – I like my steaks and my joints.
“Somebody gave me Quorn years ago and I thought it was the vilest thing I’ve ever tasted and haven’t touched it since – it might have improved by now but I’m still not going to eat it.
“She knows I hate anything like that or substitute stuff because everything I buy is fresh – I don’t buy anything frozen and like everything natural.
“We’re a very close family and I just make light of everything as I like to see them smile – we’re like this all the time anyways it doesn’t matter what it is.
“I just thought it would be funny if I sent her that and it seems to have gone crazy and I’ve carried it on for a bit – it’s all light-hearted and we have a good laugh out of things.”
While the retired mechanical engineer may dislike Quorn products, the company – one of the first meat-substitute brands in the UK- has enjoyed solid growth in recent years.
In 2018, it opened ‘the world’s biggest and most advanced’ meat-alternative factory in Billingham, UK, to increase its production capacity.
The food giant now produces 1,330,000 packs of meatless food weekly.
