ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I got all the enjoyment I can get from this pitcher by looking at the photo. No need to spend $22, as the milk I buy already comes in a carton.
“As mammals, many of us sucked teets as infants – you too I’m guessing.”
Yes, you’re correct. Milk is for babies and cow’s milk is for baby cows. Tasty non-exploitative alternatives are now available if you, like me, have never been able to wean yourselves off the proverbial teat’s bounty. They will also look great in this jug and remind of of the dark days where we felt it acceptable to use and abuse animals just because we could.
Sincerely, self-righteous vegan (and rightfully so!)
Whilst our stomachs have the perfect gut flora to break down both meat and vegetables.
I’ve lived with plenty of vegetarians (my partner of the last 3 and a bit years has only just started eating meat recently after being Vego for 13 years). But one thing I really fucking hate is self righteous vegans and vegetarians.
Rightly so my ass.
“Whilst our stomachs have the perfect gut flora to break down both meat and vegetables.”
Yes, you’re correct, and totally missing the point. Just because we can is not to say we should. We disagree about ethics and necessity, not history or physiology.
In most cases, this is great to remind people (Udder suckers – is what i call non vegans) where there milk is coming from.
“Annoying pricks” is what I call self-righteous vegans.
Hi Anon. As mammals, many of us sucked teets as infants – you too I’m guessing.
I am well aware of where milk comes from thanks. I am also able to handle that knowledge maturely and pragmatically without insulting the choices of fellow humans.
One has to wonder what these “non-vegans” call you.
Makes me think of Otis, the cow from the cartoon ‘Back at the Barnyard.’
Anon, how much time do you spend each day feeding calves some kind of plant-based protein drink so that they don’t offend you by sucking their mothers’ udders?
Vegetarian on it’s own does not preclude eating eggs or milk, only meat.
There is no need to modify it.
Though I acknowledge this may actually be a regional issue. I’m on the West Coast, you?
The title should have been “Udderly Silly Pitcher”!!! So easy!
The fact that dairy products are made from the secretions of the modified sweat glands of large hairy mammals doesn’t bother me one bit. (I’m from Wisconsin).
And how about calling non-vegans omnivores? Most of us, as adults, don’t actually suck milk directly from udders, unless we’re on Fear Factor. What do you call the lactose intolerant non-vegans, by the way? I’m genuinely curious.
And how about calling non-vegans omnivores?
Well, only if they eat meat. I’m ovolactovegetarian, myself. I eat eggs and dairy but not meat. So I’m not an omnivore.
Self-righteous vegans find me insufficiently pure. They want a derisive term that lumps me in with you, so they can proclaim their moral and dietary superiority over all other people. They’re just being jackholes, of course, but your inoffensive alternative will not suffice, since being offensive is their goal.
(Btw, I don’t think I’m better than you because you eat meat and I don’t. I just think not eating meat is right for me. So many vegetarians militantly proselytize that I feel this clarification is called for.)
I’d hate to these the anatomical shape out of which Chocolate milk is poured…
Kool-Aid Man Rolls Over in Grave.
I’m a big milk drinker. I LOVE this.
One day, it will be mine.
I was ovolacto vegetarian for a few years but now I eat meat. Self-righteous vegans LOVE me ;P
I have this, and calling it a pitcher is a stretch. It’s really a creamer and it only stands 3 or 4 inches high.
It’s super awesome! And I’d call it a milk jug.
That’s udderly ridiculous.
I can’t BELIEVE I was first with that.
I came here specifically to see whether anyone had gone there. I was not disappointed. Thanks Xopher!
I’m on the East Coast. But I was just being specific.
It looks awesome, but it’d be a hassle to clean inside of them teats.
I don’t think so. Some hot water or a dishwasher should do the trick.
