<div class="quote-block">Laurel Gordon of Washington state has been putting on a tiara to promote milk products the past two years as Grays Harbor County's dairy ambassador.<br><br>
The funny thing is, the 18-year-old from Elma is a lactose intolerant dairy princess.<br><br>
The Daily World of Aberdeen reports that unless Gordon takes special pills, her body is unable to digest milk, so she drinks soy milk.<br><br>
But her family operates a dairy farm that has been in the family for 150 years, and she believes in the product.<br><br>
She's competing for the Washington state dairy ambassador title in June.</div>

I'm not sure how you want us to comment... On the one hand, I think its pretty silly to promote a product you can't medically drink, while I also think it is nice that she's continuing her family's legacy. (But maybe I'm too into heritage and tradition.)

I'm going with the silly here. It's like having a vegetarian promoting meat eating because he or she comes from a farming or ranching family. There have been members on VB who do come from farming or ranching families but who wouldn't want to promote that kind of business. I think this Dairy Princess is a little delusional. But that's just me.

I used to live in Elma. Lots of dairy farms around there. That's all I've got... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Seems a lot of the pro milk lobby are actually lactose intolerant. You'd think that'd be a wake up call to them that milk ain't right...but no, money comes before morals as usual.
