Changing the World, One Idea at a Time

I really don't know what to say about this headline:

PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human Milk
Group Says Move Would Help Humans, Cows


I really am flummoxed...especially after reading the letter (Clink on the link above to see it).

Any thoughts?

Would you buy any of the following flavors?

Colostrum Cream
Berry Boobie
Vanilla with Real Human Milk

Is there a flavor you think Ben and Jerry might consider making with Human Breast Milk?

I heard this story on the news this morning too, and YUCK... I also heard B & Js reply - that they think breat milk is best for babies only. Totally agree with that. My big question is, if they started using breast milk, how would they get the large amount needed to make all of the ice cream? and if a woman is producing breast milk, its usually going to be for her child. Would they start trying to give woman synthetic hormones to mimic pregnancy in order to produce the breast milk?
Like you said on one of my posts... on so many levels WRONG!!!

Oh, I read this yesterday and, while yeah for breast feeding, this idea is so far over the top I can't imagine! Of course, there's a Swiss chef getting press now for creating menu items featuring breast milk. Many, many menu items. My question is how is the supply, the key ingredient, replenished. You don't just have distributors (so to speak) for this kind of thing! Or maybe there is. I fear delving too deep into the Internet to find out!

well this is a topic of choice lately...second blog this morning discussing.

UM, I don't think I am in the market for any flavor of breast milk ice cream. THANKS B&J...I will pass.

eewww...and I second the question of how would businesses really keep up enough supply! The average nursing mother of a newborn is only going to produce about 40-50 oz. of milk a day, hardly enough for a quart of ice cream. This is just ludicrous!

Berry Bobbie is ok by me.

You know, as a breast-feeding mom...I don't really even enjoy doing it for the good of my baby, let alone mankind. And dude...what happens when the batch of milk you sell B&J's happened to be pumped shortly after a garlic and salsa fest?

Um, that "Nookies and cream" as William called it might taste a bit like something served at the Gilroy Garlic Festival!

Okay seriously, I am all about having a cause. Really. Let's find something we are passionate about and go about helping the world become a better place. But is it just me here or are these PETA people borderline crazy? You want to boycott ice cream? Great, that's your perrogative in this beautiful free country we live in. But making ridiculous and outlandish disgusting suggestions is crossing the line. Don't mess with the ice cream people. I'm going to start my one radical group and call it PETIC - People for the ethical treatment of ice cream. Wanna join?

For the record, this post is classic Bogie. Good to see you are clearly still a bit off. Lucky girl that Claire (grin).
