No es una vaca cualquiera


When you think about all the chocolate milk in the world, it was almost discrimination that there wasn't dulce de leche milk, don't you think?

Meh . . . I don't really think so either. But now we have dulce de leche milk. Maybe we did before, for all I know. Anyway, it's sort of milk-flavored milk, isn't it? Well, milk- and sugar-flavored milk, dulce de leche being nothing more than boiled and reduced milk with abominable amounts of sugar added.

Anyway, these posters for dulce de leche milk are up all over town. And I keep seeing them. So I thought: "Huh, that might make for a mildly amusing blog entry. Maybe I'll say something about how chocolate milk is all over the place but you never really think about dulce de leche milk."

And then I started to think about how odd it was that the flavoring they're adding to the milk is itself milk-based, as covered two paragraphs above.

And then I visited the web site for the milk and SWEET MERCIFUL CRAP THAT CARTOON COW HAS FRIGHTENINGLY LARGE UDDERS.

That is just not natural.

I had actually planned to blog about something else today. I had planned to do a lot of things. But now I've seen those udders.

First one to post a comment containing the word "udderly" loses.

I can see why you found the udders so distracting. They are almost obscene really. She's all udder and no torso.

Dan said...

It's hilarious! And disturbing as hell. Who on EARTH thought this was a good idea?

The fact that the box says "full" right above them is slightly vulgar.
(Betcha spent the day playing games over on that cow website....)

And, say, don't they remind you of a wad bubble gum.... now let your mind wander a bit...)

The milk looks delicious but the cow's anatomy is "udderly" tasteless. Nyuh!

Did I win?

Actually, do we know for sure that these are udders? They could be cystic growths resulting from feeding the cows so much dulce de leche, just like brown cows get mad cow disease from eating too much chocolate (it's all been scientifically proven).

But even if they are natural endowments, when children drink from these sweet teets little boys apparently sprout piranha teeth and little girls just start bawling uncontrollably.

You probably shouldn't drink this milk, Dan.
