I don't remember if they eat meat or not, but I believe they did like to torture humans, and were big chubby like characters.

lol, Diesel. you're thinking of vegans, not Vogons. Vegans are those strange, often militant, individuals who have eschewed the use of meat/animal products in favour of a strictly plant-based diet.* Vogons, on the other hand, are a fictional race of beings, thought up by the twisted (perhaps even sprained) mind of the late Douglas Adams, and are a part of the mythos of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

* Note: There are a wide variety of vegans, some of whom only avoid red meat (beef, lamb, pork, etc.), yet will eat fish or poultry, others of which won't eat any sort of meat, but will eat eggs and dairy products, and yet others who are strictly herbivores, refusing any and all animal products completely. Watch out for those, as they've been known to steal and eat #2 pencils! Tongue

In the (maybe not so) famous words of Louis, the chef in the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid:

"Zut alors, I have missed one!" Cheesy

The Vogons maybe fictional but they are on Wiki.

In the authors words...

Here is what to do if you want to get a lift from a Vogon: forget it. They are one of the most unpleasant races in the Galaxy. Not actually evil, but bad-tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous. They wouldn't even lift a finger to save their own grandmothers from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal without orders signed in triplicate, sent in, sent back, queried, lost, found, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters. The best way to get a drink out of a Vogon is to stick your finger down his throat, and the best way to irritate him is to feed his grandmother to the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal. On no account should you allow a Vogon to read poetry at you.
