The Cat Daddy always has the best ideas. He just peeked out from the basement:
CD: "Hey Skerrib, are your b00bies still making milk?" [we only use correct anatomical terminology in our house, thank you]
Me: "Umm, why?"
CD: "Start pumping now!"
CD: "PETA wants Ben & Jerry to start using breastmilk in their ice cream, instead of cows' milk, and you could make some serious money!"
Me: "No way! I could make way more selling breastmilk on the black market than giving it to an ice cream company."
Let me throw in some qualifiers and say that I'm not certain exactly what the black market is, or even that it actually exists. I've just heard rumors that if it did exist, breastmilk would go for a pretty penny.
Apparently some place in Switzerland is going to field test the human milk approach by substituting 75% human milk in its ice cream and other items. The reasoning is along the lines of significantly reducing the mistreatment of dairy cows and their young, as well as sparing people from the dangers of dairy products. Because Dr. Spock said so.
My favorite, though, was Ben & Jerry's response:
"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."
