Udderly unbelievable

Udderly shocking. We are going to need more breasts (udders) and do we have any volunteers?

I thought not.

VERMONT -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow's milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

And Here is the letter:

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Cofounders

Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.

Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,

On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's.

Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.

Using cow's milk for your ice cream is a hazard to your customer's health. Dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, constipation, obesity, and prostate and ovarian cancer. The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it may play a role in anemia, allergies, and juvenile diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease-America's number one cause of death.

Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Like all mammals, cows only produce milk during and after pregnancy, so to be able to constantly milk them, cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months. After several years of living in filthy conditions and being forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally, their exhausted bodies are turned into hamburgers or ground up for soup.

And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to 17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.

The breast is best! Won't you give cows and their babies a break and our health a boost by switching from cow's milk to breast milk in Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Thank you for your consideration.

On a side note; I just love veal.


  1. I'd be rich!

    So, Admiral.....girls from NJ don't get picked up, eh?

    I will get my revenge when you least expect it.


  2. I am sorry about that.

    If I remember right when I was dating my wife (She was born in Red Bank NJ) and I was telling redneck jokes. She told me that joke about New Jersey girls. It was funny because she did not tell many jokes.

  3. I can't wait for the job app for the female breast milking.

    We are now going to turn our women into cows? It could be extra income. Show up at your appointed time...hell I bet we don't even have to heard them, too much..the lactate and we got "Chunky Money" Ice Cream (or Cheery Garcia (might want a drug test on that one)).

    So now when we call them udders, it' will be a good thing and not derogatory? I'm so confused.


Thank you for taking the time to comment.
