It seems that my radio show was on the cutting edge again. I don't say that to boast. I say it when it's the truth.
We are often on top of stories that the media at large only pick up the next day or even days later.
One of the stories making the rounds today is one we talked about on Monday.
It's the bizarre and disturbing story of a New York chef who has been making cheese...from his fiancee's breast milk.
Yes, it brings to mind the horrifying (but admittedly hilarious) scene in which Borat gives Congressman Bob Barr some cheese to try as a gift of friendship. Only after Barr consumes it is he told it comes from Borat's wife's breast milk.
The look on Barr's face was mild compared to my reaction to THIS story.
The fact that this man is talking as if his Love's breast milk is no different than any other ingredient he could possibly use makes me think we are even further off our rocker than I even thought.
I don't know what is more disturbing--that she and he are doing this...or that third parties are lining up to eat it.
Dr. Manny Alvarez is saying the same thing I have been saying for days--that this isn't exactly a healthy indulgence.
Sure, breast milk is one of the best things that ever happened to babies. BABIES. Not grown ups.
My speculations were proven correct by Dr. Alvarez--you can get hepatitis and HIV this way. Doesn't sound so avant garde now, does it?
Sorry, but people who are lining up to eat this cheese are SICK in my opinion and need a good psychiatrist.
Maybe the chef and his fiancee can recommend one.
