Wallace’s Farmer November 2008:

PETA wants breast milk
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., urging them to replace the cow’s milk they use in in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman. PETA’s request came after news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers an substituting it for 75% of the cow’s milk in the food he serves. PETA says switching to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies and benefit human health.

Hmmm…Faithful readers, I leave the commentary up to you.

Hilarity follows after an evening of chicken petting
by Susan Clauer
One day, I had a friend over for supper and afterward, I asked her if she wanted to see the chickens. By this time it was dark outside, so I grabbed a flashlight.

We went inside the chicken shed and all the chickens were on the roost. She had never petted a chicken before, so I held one and had her pet it.

The rooster became spooked, hopped off the roost and went outside in the run. We went outside into the run to chase him back inside.

While he was running back and forth, he kept running into the poles and fence like a drunk.

My friend was laughing so hard she almost wet her pants which made me laugh too.

Finally, I caught the rooster and put him back inside.

Still waiting for the hilarity? Me too. The irony is the author got paid $25 for this story!! I think my chicken story is way funnier. Maybe I should submit it…
