I Scream, You Scream…

Well, keep on screaming.

In a move that could have been lifted directly out of Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” video, a London ice cream parlor, Icecreamists, is selling human breast milk ice cream for £14 a scoop (that’s about $22.50 U.S.).

The breast milk  was reportedly purchased from new mothers found through online ads. Icecreamists  founder Matt O’Connor told the BBC that  the product is pasteurized and donors undergo the same health screenings as blood donors.

He added, “it’s pure, organic, free-range, and totally natural.”

(Free-range mothers. Imagine that!)

One donor said she gets £15 for every 10 ounces of milk she donates to the company, and that it was a great “recession beater”.

“What’s the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?” she asked, adding that  if adults realized how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed.

O’Connor said “If it’s good enough for our children, it’s good enough for the rest of us.”

Good as it may be, it remains to be seen if this milkshake will bring all the boys to his yard.
