I hope that this is the last of The Word Den's vegan-based-monstrosity series.
A vegangelist is someone who goes about proclaiming the benefits of being a vegan.
This is fine, of course, as long as they don't get aggressive or silly about it, like supporting an attack on a butcher's shop, for instance; or suggesting a change to the name of town because it's called after an animal product.
That sort of action might make people think that vegans are dangerous and/or clinically mad.
Which they're not.
Well, not most of them, anyway.
Word Not To Use Today: vegangelism. No one I can discover is admitting to having coined this horrible word. The word evangelist basically means good news, from the Greek eu- good and angelos, messenger (yes, as in angel).
The name of the town of Wool comes from the Saxon welle, which means spring and is nothing to do with a sheep's coat.
