We don’t know who MilkSucks.com is trying to dissuade with its, “Got Pus?” page—pus, like milk, is creamy, sweet, and delicious. The PETA-backed website does a lot better when it describes the dangers of bovine growth hormone and ‘mastitis,’ a swelling of a milk cow’s sexy udders. (Science Note: ‘Mastitis’ as a term for ‘massive tit disease’ is just shy of brilliant.)
The picture on the ‘Got Pus?’ page (reproduced here) is total amateur hour, though, and stops just short of showing a zombie farmer squeezing clumpy curds of blood from the animated corpse of six cows stitched together into a outsized, throbbing mammary goblin.
So yeah, cow’s milk might not be the best thing for humans to drink, but you’re not going to wean many folks off of dairy products by admonishing them to “try delicious soy or rice milk, soy cheese, Tofutti ice cream, and tofu sour cream and cream cheese.” Especially since soy is not without its potential health risks. And Tofutti sucks.
On the upside, the website is not a total travesty of HTML, which elevates it a couple steps above the Sucks Page Rendering Standard.
