I Scream for Normal Ice Cream

I read an article recently that the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) actually asked the co-founders of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream to stop using cow's milk in their ice cream and to start using.....

Human breast milk.




"PETA officials say a move to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies on factory farms and benefit human health."

Okay, so the health benefits I agree with but how many people do you know who actually drink mom's milk after say age 2?

Hopefully not too many.

Especially not people who are old enough to drive.

And they think the cows don't like it? Where in the heck do they think they are going to get hundreds of thousands of lactating mothers who are willing to be milked? I know I was D.O.N.E. being 'milked' after 12 months and two kids.

(And if they are worried about the baby cows, what about human babies?)

Thankfully Ben & Jerry said thanks but no thanks.

Otherwise we all might be eating a new flavor of ice cream called Mama's Lactation Sensation.

Or Colostrum Concoction.


I'll stick with good old cow's milk, thanks.

I doubt she would look this happy if she was eating her own breast milk!
