    I don't think the PETA letter is entirely serious. I think they are trying to point out the "hypocrisy" of thinking that it's OK to exploit cows for their milk, but somehow exploiting women in the same way isn't acceptable. To them cows are people too.

    One of the issues we seem to have skipped here is whether we'd buy Ben and Jerry's anyway. I love Super Fudge Chunk, but I haven't bought any since they started giving outrageous, anti-family benefits.

    I know, we can't boycott everyone who has these policies. I also know that they hardly miss my business. I don't try to mount boycotts. It's just personal. I also don't go to McDonald's.

    On the otherhand, there may be new motivations for getting into the future dairy business. :think:

    A local chicken wing place has a similar slogan:

    "All of our meat was 100% Vegetarian."

    If God didn't want us to eat animals, why did he make them out of meat!


    I don't see many tofu squirrels jumping around, do you?!

    You're just going to milk this thread for all it's worth, aren't you?

    At first, I thought that, too. But the PETA letter cites a restaurant that is using 75% human milk in its recipes. Why do this if they were not actually looking for some support?

    I know it can be hard to fathom that such people like those associated with PETA actually exist, but, brother, it is true. ;)

    Sure, we can nurse a few more laughs out of it if we try!

    Only because PETA is such a bunch of boobs.

    Yep, there's probably enough material here to keep us busy until the cows come home.

    I still think they are trying to get people to give up on dairy altogether. I would have included the restaurant as support to my argument if I was writing the letter.

    I've had chicha on a missions trip. It's a type of beer. Thankfuly the natives have figured out that you can make a lot more chicha by bioling the yucka root and making a firmented tea, than by having people chew it up :think:

    PETA has been off the rails on a crazy train since it's inception.

    (Thanks Ozzy for giving us such a great description of insanity ;) )
