Are They Smokin' the Crack Over at PETA?


I got the following piece from Jennsylvania, who got it from WNBC.com.

VERMONT -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, co-founders 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.

"PETA's request comes in the wake of news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting breast milk for 75 percent of the cow's milk in the food he serves," the statement says.

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.

"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."

In a statement Ben and Jerry's said, "We applaud PETA's novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother's milk is best used for her child."


I think animals need better representation.

I knew these people had gone over the edge when I read (and actually saw pictures of them rescuing lobsters) from some restaurant and returning them to the sea, stating that lobsters had "family values too", so Kim the next time you prepare a recipe with lobster, just think, think what you are doing........

Oh my lord. The answer to your question would be yes, they are smoking massive amounts of crack. Do you think Baby Momma ice cream would scare away everyone, or just almost everyone?

Nice image. (urp) I've been meaning to post on this. PETA makes me scream, well, they make me rant: Bera PETA, Women are animals too!

rita makes me want to orphan a lobster...

kitchenmage said...

"Bera"? Um, yeah, so much for coherence. That's supposed to be "Dear" and now I will take my uncontrolled fingers away where they will not inflict further pain on your comments. geez

Those poor animals.

I think the 'good' people at PETA have gone Stark Raving Bonkers.

Geez, that image is just a little too believable...isn't Photoshop amazing?

I'm sorry. I was sitting here while my brain melted and leaked out of my ears, staring at the four-breasted naked woman attached to the milking machine and thinking about what kind of Google Image hits your blog is about to get, and I realized that I'd finished my entire ice-human-cream hot fudge sundae. Must get a refill.

Two words come to mind... first OUCH from looking at the picture and then EEEWWW from thinking about eating iced breast milk. And perhaps a third word - yuck!

Loved PhillyGirls comment and recommend. The names for the flavors were hysterical and quite creative!

Cheers! Cindy

Okay Okay Okay - I had a hard enough time trying my OWN. I had to see why boo boo loved it so much.

I do not even want to think about drinking some other person's breastmilk. in fact, I almost threw up in my mouth typing this.

This is one of your funniest posts ever. I almost fell out of my chair laughing about it. Thankfully, I regained my composure since I am at work, and not technically supposed to be surfing the web...
Ha.
