The news has been so bad lately that I thought a little insanity might lighten things up for us. My friend J. Wesley Smith put the following item on his blog. The humorous aspect of this crazy story (which is true, by the way) is that PETA wants the human milk in order to take the pressure off of dairy cows.

PETA : Wants Ice Cream Made From Human Milk
I can't tell you all how often I ignore PETA's ridiculous antics. They are addicted to publicity--any publicity--to promote their zealotry and I am loath to lend any hand in that enterprise. But sometimes a story comes along that so succinctly illustrates the group's idiocy that it is impossible to resist:
PETA wants Ben and Jerry's to make ice cream from human milk. From the story:
"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.Women as so many dairy cows: If a right wing group suggested something like this the sisterhood would explode. More to the point, PETA knows the proposal is beyond stupid. How many millions of gallons of ice cream does Ben and Jerry's sell a year? That requires millions of cows putting out more milk each day than women do. You also need to pasteurize the milk, etc. etc. etc.
The restaurant aspect of the story is just another indication that the Swiss are losing their minds, what with their biggest brains promoting plant rights and all. But PETA's leaders will latch onto anything--no matter how inane--to anthropomorphize animals and get the group into the klieg lights. But then, the group rakes in millions each year from people who dig into their own pockets "for the animals." So, apparently its leaders have found that stupid sells.

Tell PETA sure, great, go for it. Get their female volunteers to go down to Ben & Jerry's and spend their days hooked up to milking machines. Send Pam Anderson if her breasts' milk production hasn't been destroyed by all the silicon.

PETA is so dehumanizing to women in general. On top of this crap, almost all of their commercials involve models who are naked or posed's digusting. (I guess for PETA's benefit I ought to use the word 'de-personifying" instead of "dehumanizing.")
