Ok, I know this is a little bit of a stretch, but in a way not so much...<br><br>
I saw a soy milk ad featuring a family of cows. The mother says something about being really busy, and they end up feeding the family soy milk...<br><br>
Reminds me of something. Maybe it's just my extreme pregnant-ness messing with my head... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

It really, really bothered me too, until I saw it as a subversive comment on the pervasiveness of Big Agribusiness - there's so many subsidies and incentives for farmers to grow soy and other dubious crops that they've had to resort to getting innocent cows, who should be eating GRASS!!! addicted to soy beverages.<br><br>
? ok no, I still hate that commercial.<br><br>
(It's kind of like that old joke... you get someone to say "silk" a whole bunch of times then you say "ok what do cows drink?" and they say "milk" and you laugh and say "NO! silly, cows drink water. Calves drink milk.")

Equuskia,<br>
I was never quite sure why that commercial bothered me; but it's so obvious now.<br>

I'm glad it struck others as odd, too!
