PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has asked Ben & Jerry's to start using breast milk in their ice cream. While it looks like nothing more than a vile publicity stunt (or as Jameth puts it, an article), we'll let the letter PETA sent to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield speak for itself. Ahem:

Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,
On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's.
Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.
