In the news today - an ice cream parlour in London's Covent Garden has started selling breast milk ice cream. Why are all these people-on-the-street surprised when they like the taste? They have all tasted it before. At £14 a scoop, it would be interesting to see who's buying it. It's served with a rusk and a bottle (calpol optional), and is obviously good for kids. However, calling it Baby Gaga and having the waitress dress up in a Lady Gaga bondage-style outfit suggests that there may be something in slightly poorer taste going on here.
Full story (and a more serious news report):

Westminster Council officers seized the breast milk ice cream from The Icecreamists in Covent Garden. Despite owner Matt O'Conner saying it had been medically screened and pasteurized, the council responded to public concerns that the human breast milk may not be fit for human consumption. What the public are really saying is that this commercialization of human breast milk for adults makes them uneasy. As for the ice creamists, well, all this free publicity can't be doing them any harm.
