What is Milking and Other Internet Trends
Moooove over planking! If you missed out on last year's planking and owling craze, here is a new trend that does a body good. Started by a group of students in the United Kingdom, milking involves purchasing a half gallon of milk from your favorite grocer and simply pouring it over your own head in public. Milkers say that they "milk" publically for the shock value.
They Milkers prefer to quench their need for attention in front of famous landmarks such as Exhibition Park at Newcastle University. Each incident of milking is video taped for prosperity and world enjoyment. Anyone can do it. Just get the camera rolling, pour the milk over your head, and be sure to capture your antics on video tape.
Milking is popular with young students in Newcastle and the trend has even inspired some businessmen to join in. Conspiracy theorists are already blaming local dry cleaners for starting the strange craze.
Milkers have the option of choosing to douse themselves with whole, 2%, or skim milk. At an average of $7.00 per gallon, milkers are discouraged from using organic milk for this stunt.
Local economists are already predicting a milk shortage in the UK as it is flying off the shelves at an alarming pace. Grocers are suggesting the milkers consider using powdered coffee creamer and Kool-Aid as an alternative.
While this trend is all in fun, the public remains appalled at the idea. Many who criticize the practice state that it is insulting when considering that child hunger is a world-wide epidemic. Many state that milk is commodity to be reserved and not wasted for such a prank. Weigh in with your opinion.
