This was too good not to pass along:

Militant milk drinkers attack PETA activists
Police in Aberdeen, Scotland, rescued animal rights activists from children armed with cartons of milk, who attacked the activists when they showed up at school, the Scotsman newspaper reported.

Two members of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), one dressed as a cow, sought to educate the children about the perils of drinking milk.

About 100 youngsters, chanting "milk for the masses," surrounded the two and drenched them with milk until police intervened.

Jesus! Who knew that kids could be so, well, conscious?!

I love the image of 100+/- kids, average height about 3.75 feet, drenching a bipedal cow with milk.

This is PRICELESS!

I'll have to keep that in mind for if/when a PETA idiot comes to visit my daughter's school. I sure wouldn't punish her for pelting one of those idiots with milk.

Now that would be classic. A group of smokers surrounding those cocky holier-than-thou college punkasses and alternating between coughing up a lung and stubbing out their red hot butts on the kids faces. I bet the little bastards wouldn't be so cocky then.

I probably don't agree with any of that, but this paragraph was too funny to not re-quote.

I must say, some Scots really take no shit. Really, it's great to see *any* group take a stand against PETA.

One of their latest (filmed in my city, around 60th and Park) has the MetLife Building in the backround, which is a huge life insurance company. I still haven't figured out how this is significant, but there's something there. Something...

I originally come from Walkerton, Ontario, and I can safely say that even after what happened there, PETA would be dealt with in a fashion we in the Redneck belt call;

"Take'm out to the woodshed".

HUGE farming population up there. Cows, pigs, sheep (I was a shephard for a year....good fun!), dairy, crops....crap, we even have organic farms up there too. Agriculture is very important, and if these folks were to drop by, there would be some 'fun' had. Kudos for the kids in that article for sticking up for farmers.....and cause MILK RULES so it should be defended aginst such claims!



EDIT: Yes, I was there in Walkerton when "it" happened. Wrote my Grade 13 exam in a bingo hall cause my school was being sterilized.

Exactly. I agree with them more often than not (although they push everything too far, and I don't think they understand fishing, like, at all), but they go about everything the wrong way. All they're interested in is the publicity anymore, and that actually *hurts* their case because you get a lot of people who'll take the exact opposite side completely out of spite.

That said, I think they may kinda have a point here. If you stop and think about it, something is horribly unnatural about drinking milk. No other animal on the planet drinks it after infancy, let alone the milk of another species. Somehow just doesn't seem right to me... (Personally, I'm lactose intolerant anyway, so I can't drink pure milk without getting sick, rendering the whole thing a moot point. And I have no qualms about eating something with milk in it, I'm just, you know, giving the other side of the story here.)

You can't really compare us to other animals, at least in my view, as we're nothing like other animals. Our entire existence depends on our ability to command and alter our environment, as we do not have large tails for swinging from trees, claws for tunneling, etc. At least, I don't. Besides, milk does a body good.

Also, nice icon Fuzzy. "I'm gonna explore the studio space on this next one."

Well, I like drinking milk and I don't see anything unnatural about drinking it. It's no different from consuming any other part of the animal for food. As a life-long milk drinker, I have a handsome physique and yet to experience a broken bone (knock on wood). If they don't like to drink milk, then that's fine. To each their own. The problem I have with PETA is that they want to establish themselves as some moral authority and try to tell somebody else's impressionable kids how to think. It's funny at times that organizations like PETA, which are by ideology supposed to be more tolerant of other viewpoints, aren't so tolerant when the viewpoint directly conflicts with theirs. Why is that?

Then again, how exactly would one go about getting human milk? Sure, it's healthier, but we can't exactly farm people out, ya know.

Exactly, that's why you're not supposed to drink it past infancy. But, again, I'm just playing devil's advocate here.

I think farming people would be a great way to deal with the homeless problem. Sadly, the downside of this is that you'd have to seperate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, but the chaff could still be used for leather products. The meat wouldn't be fit to eat on some of the homeless, we could in theory feed it to the enfeabled, because they're gonnna die soon anyway. And, they're enfeabled, they serve no further purpose except to be a drain on our society.

Let's farm the homeless. It will provide a steady, relatively cheap source of milk, meat and leather. And, quite possibly, gelatin.

yes, for some reason I have A Modest Proposal stuck in my head... lol.

The only time it's appropriate to try to guide someone to eating only non-animal related stuffs is at a dinner party where you're providing all the food... But, just like your meat-eating friends would attempt to provide a food you would find acceptable, you should do the same for them, because it's nice. Jerky is totally good for this.

And once again, I must say Those schoolkids milk-bombing the peta-ites, rules.
