Vegan in the News: Soy...Jizzum?

Apparently the National Milk Producer's Federation created a petition to convince the FDA to stop the "misappropriation of dairy terminology" by companies that make non-dairy products, like soy milk, hemp milk, and cashew cheese.

You can read about it here. Trust me, its a hilarious article. And for the love of god, watch the video. It's worth it.

Cause you know, they don't want the American public to be misled. I really appreciate it guys! We wouldn't want people to "accidentally" realize there's a better alternative to their products would we??


  1. Madam X-tina - that was so strange and funny, I'm struggling to integrate what I just read/heard. But I know that some lobby/consultant person was paid a lot of money to come up with this revelatory campaign - and some ditzy news anchor also earned big bucks to sit at her desk and "report" this "news story".But that was too funny - what were they thinking??!!I'm toasting our investigative X-tina with a glass of soy sangria!

  2. Ain't all bad! Back in the day, they lobbied against calling Pringles chips, succeeded in getting them called 'crisps' and classified as something else, and now Pringles doesn't have to pay the Value Added Tax, unlike your average giant industry potato product.
