**Please take this tongue in cheek, it is not my intention to offend anyone**
The other day my husband and I were having a conversation in the car when he sprung something on me that I thought was too out there to be anything but a joke.Â Here is how theÂ conversation went:
"Did you hear P.E.T.A. thinks milking cows is inhumane and they are trying to get cow's milk replaced with breast milk?"
"What?Â Matt, that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard, you are messing with me right?"
"Nope I am serious."
"Seriously, how would they do that?? Not every woman produces milk, not to mention the different kinds.Â What would they use skinny girls for skim milk and the big mamas with the basketball boobies down to their knees for the whole?"Â
Matt's parents were with us in the car and they also thought he was pulling one over on me, at this point his Mom chimes in, "Do you have to smash them in a dresser drawer to get condensed milk?"Â
I laughed so hard at the visual I was almost crying, "What about evaporated milk, how do they pull that one off?"Â
At which my hubby chimes in, "I don't wanna know how they make cheese"
and my father- in - law "Grandpa and I will volunteer to be the milkers"
I can barely talk from laughing so hard.Â Tears flowing I choke out "I am not EVEN going to comment on howÂ they get different flavors..."
We laugh and continue joking at the sheer idiocy of this new idea, including "Does this mean the silicone inserts they sell at Victoria's Secrets are now going to be considered take out ?"
This continues and I was highly amused thinking my husbands family is really fun and amusing to hang out with (which they still, in fact are quite fun, just they didnt' make this up).Â This morning my husband emailed me this link:Â http://blog.peta.org/archives/2008/09/breast_is_best.php,Â and showed me that he in fact was not messing with me and that P.E.T.A. is SERIOUSLY petitioning to replace cows milk with human breast milk.
Please chime in and let me know your thoughts on this one!

Is it just me or does this seem a bit over the top?
My husband thinks it would be great if this happened because then the farmers would kill/sell all their dairy cows since they wouldn't have any other use for them and the price of steaks/red meat would fall through the floor. LOL
