Breastmilk: The Other White Milk

I rarely get caught up in quixotic Internet causes, but this is too good to pass up. It includes three things close to my heart: breasts and the milk therein, big pork, and, for some additional gadget-tasticness, you could add in some robot breast pumps or something. Plus this poor lady is from Columbus, my home town, so rock and roll.

ANYWAY, she is a lactivist. Fair enough. Our son was breast-fed. And this lady makes t-shirts. They say “Milk Jugs,” “I Play With My Baby’s Food,” and, “The Other White Milk.” With me so far? If you don’t care, go ahead and read about the Wii.

Well, Big Pork didn’t like that last one, friends, and they went on to suggest that this young lady was actually suggesting that adults drink from her lovely lady lumps.

“In addition, your use of this slogan also tarnishes the good reputation of the National Pork Board’s mark in light of your apparent attempt to promote the use of breastmilk beyond merely for infant consumption, such as with the following slogans on your website in close proximity to the slogan “The Other White Milk.” “Dairy Diva,” “Nursing, Nature’s Own Breast Enhancement,” “Eat at Mom’s, fast-fresh-from the breast,” and “My Milk is the Breast.”

Yep, that’s right. “Promote the use of breastmilk beyond merely for infant consumption.” If this is not an example of a lawyer not getting enough breastmilk as a child, I’m not sure what is. Go on over and help this lady out and, when given the choice between half-and-half and boob milk… go boob milk.
