So, what does everyone else think of these latest tv commercials brought to you by the dairy industry?<br><br><br><br>
They're now even claiming that milk can cure PMS syndromes.<br><br><br><br>
First it helps you lose weight, and now it cures PMS?<br><br><br><br>
What's next?!

Wow... maybe this is why I haven't watched TV in over a year... jeeze!<br><br><br><br>
They're full of bull... excuse the pun<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
What's sad, is that the cute commercials (if I remember, the happy cow ones for California cheese) will totally grab the attention of kids, who are extremely impressionable. They'll actually think a typical dairy cow lives a life as picturesque as that on the commercials. It couldn't be farther from the truth.

Probably a new class of hormones the inject the cow with.<br><br>
If the dairy indusry could get cows to lactate a blend of heroine. you know they would put in on the shelf.

Funny. I've had the least cramping when I've been OFF dairy. I hate the dairy industry. I'm so angry about it lately. Calves being torn away from their mothers -- how can anyone possibly do that and look themselves in the mirror in the morning! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:"><br><br><br><br>
Since we've recently become vegan again, we've been explaining to our 3-year-old that cow's milk is for baby calves, not for humans. Yesterday we were at a children's museum and they had an exhibit where you could milk a cow statue (it was water that came out) - and they had these toy milk bottles you could use. When my 3-year-old saw the milk bottles, he picked one up and said, "oh, this is cow's milk, for the cow!" and he pretended to feed it to the cow. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

^ That's cute, colorful!<br><br><br><br>
I hated those "Happy Cows Come from California" commercials with green pastures and crap. Is it wrong that I think the "Dah-Eerry" commercials are funny? Yeah, I thought so....

I have not seen these ads, thankfully, as I do not allow television into my life. But in a culture led by such notables as George W Bush and Paris Hilton, what are we to expect?

I hate these commercials too. All of the happy cows or the excited cow cartoons they put on these commercials for milk and cheese. And I just keep thinking about these cows being forced into a truck when they've become "useless" and about how they babies are torn away.<br><br><br><br>
I seriously have to start a farm rescue......

I hadn't seen the "cures PMS" claims. Funny, when I stopped consuming dairy, the previously almost intolerable pain of menstruation became a distant memory. When I ate dairy products, it was common for me to eat 50-100 OTC Ibuprofen tablets during my period. After cutting out dairy, I never needed another pain reliever during that time of the month. Cutting out dairy also eliminated the arthritis pain and lower back pain that I had been experiencing for years.

I agree. It seems as though my cramps disappeared when I cut dairy from my life, too. Go figure. A month or so ago, I had the first period I had had since maybe January. Surprising, mild cramps. Usually, on my first day, I'm doubled over, cursing the snake and praying that the ibuprofin kicks in. (Speaking of crampy-ness, I'm feeling it now, but it is still tolerable.)<br><br><br><br>
Some friends have been commenting on the high price of diary milk. I keep thinking that if they knew what their money was going to, they might shuddup and switch to soy.<br><br><br><br>
I also liked the Silk commericals. Blantant mockery of the dairy industry, it seemed. Happy cows drink Soy.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

Has anyone seen the new egg commercials... um the toast and egg are on a beach and the egg keeps bugging the toast to do something with it because it's just SO ENERGENIC! Then it goes for a swim or something and at the end the screen reads ; "eggs : for energetic people". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"> WTF?

How am I missing all of these? Have seen the skinny milk claims... have not seen the PMS one, or the Silk commercials, or the egg one.<br><br><br><br>
Of course, I watch mostly evening tv, if at all... LOST, etc... And with DVR we often do just skip the commercials~ Maybe that's why, lol.

Absolutely! I can't understand how some of these celebrities who wouldn't do any other commercials or ads because it would mean they are a sell-out, somehow feel it's okay for them to appear in these annoying "Got Milk?" ads with their cutesy moustache.
