You can't make this stuff up: PETA calls on Ben & Jerry's to use human breast milk in its ice cream

The animals rights group PETA is calling on Ben and Jerry's to replace the use of cow's milk in its ice cream with human breast milk. No joke:

"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."

Let's extend this logic out a little further. Why are we eating cow's flesh? Eating meat from cows just doesn't make sense. We could all do ourselves a favor by eating human flesh instead, and urging all beef growers to convert over to human farms.

It's a measure of the decline of Western Civilization that these people just don't have any concept of how absurd they look.

I'm pretty sure they know exactly how absurd they look. PETA generates free publicity for itself by making outrageous statements-they even have you talking about them.
