Dear P.E.T.A: Stay Out Of My Ice Cream! Baraf September 26, 2008 Bizarre 9 Comments I love animals. Really, I do. I grew up with pets and fully embrace their cuddly cuteness. Unfortunately the people of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have taken it too far. PETA wrote Ben and Jerry’s a letter requesting that they replace the cows milk used to make their ice cream with breast milk. Yes, you read that correctly – BREAST MILK!!! The nutcases over at PETA argue that it is healthier for us to consume breast milk, and that using cows for their milk is inhumane. First of all, if I am going for healthy, Ben and Jerry’s probably wont be my first stop. And secondly, inhumane to the cows… what about the women?! I guess PETA has no problems with milking women? I was hoping this was a joke, but jokes on me because this is totally serious. I’m just praising the folks over at Ben and Jerry’s for remaining sane and unswayed by Peta’s craziness. I know I certainly would not buy ice cream made from breast milk. Eww, just, eww. via wptzÂ and Cold Mud.

Reply molly539 September 27th, 2008 Just where does PETA suggest B&J gets the lactating women from? There surely aren’t enough of them to make ice cream in the amounts that we Americans consume. As Baraf says, eewwww! Reply Timothy FFC September 28th, 2008 Despite the apparent seriousness of this campaign, I cannot help thinking the PETA folks have their tongues firmly planted in their cheeks… and are now just sitting back watching the media frenzy. Reply James September 28th, 2008 That’s pretty disgusting. What are they thinking? Suggesting a soy-based product would have been a lot more sane. Reply JT September 29th, 2008 Two breast milk posts in one week? What kind of blog is this?? Reply Feta September 30th, 2008 HAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!! DonÂ´t they think that they are loosing their credebiltiy, when makin these great suggestions… Reply Eick October 1st, 2008 Q: What kind of blog is this? A: One that LOVES writing about breast milk. Although ironically, both of those posts were not from me, but from So Good contributors. Reply Anonymous October 2nd, 2008 Breast milk won’t really work for ice cream. It can’t be used to make cheese or yogurt all that well either. What’s up with people thinking pasteurized human secretions are gross compared to pasteurized cow secretions?
