Ice Cream Made With Real (Breast) Milk

. Friday, September 26

Get this. Now, I'm no farmer, but it doesn't take much to figure out that cows need to be milked twice a day or they are in agony. I'm no scientist either, but humans have tapped into cow's milk for a long time now and reaped the benefits of its wholesomeness. A cow has four teats, but only produces one calf per year, which seems to me to mean that the cow produces a lot more milk than can be used by one calf. Sure, mass production has intervened in the natural process a bit to pull the calf off its momma to collect all the milk for human consumption. That's just the way it is with mass production of any of our food sources. But, PETA has decided to campaign against Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, saying that it is cruel to the cows and calves to harvest the milk, and they want the ice cream maker to use human breast milk instead. Sure, it's absurd, PETA says, but so is drinking milk from cows. What planet are these people from?

They're from Uranus, obviously. ;)

Hmm, sounds like a good plan to me. Could be a second income for women with a bit of extra milk to spare. They could call it Mother's Ice Cream-the Breast Ice Cream Ever.

That's actually one of the more disturbing things I've heard in some time.

That's saying something, really -- things are so odd these days that all sorts of odd suggestions are floating around out there.

Odd or not, I'll pass, thank you! I agree - it is disturbing, it's so out-in-left-field.
