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.
"The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn't make sense," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Everyone knows that 'the breast is best,' so Ben & Jerry's could do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk."
Breast pump manufacturers would have been ecstatic. Dairy farmers, not so much. B & J's response was something to the effect of "Bugger off, tit gits."
It won't happen, but if B & J change their minds, I'd like to throw out a new flavor contest for their ice cream. Look at their current selections, and put your ideas in the comments.
I'll start: Fudge Nipple Ripple
Update: OMG - we're back to Cleveland Steamer references!11!!
