We are the Randomly Surreal Generation
Friday, Mar. 14, 2003 -
So you ask: "How can a non-dairyring product have a member called Idiot-Milk? Milk is a dairy-product, right?"
Well, yes it is. In fact, it is first among dairy-products. But do we get idiot-milk from a dairy? I don't think so. Doesn't it come straight from the idiot?
The fallen are not anti-milk. Nor are we milk-free, in the sense that we have no milk or milk-product ingredients. (We are milk-freely, in the sense that we are allowed to gorge freely on ice-cream, cheese, cheesecake, chocolate malt milkshakes, and other milky delicacies.) But we are free (mostly) of dairy rings.* You know, that ring made on a level surface by the condensation on a glass of fresh-from-the-fridge cold milk? Or sometimes you're a wee bit careless pouring the milk and it slops over and you wipe it up but you don't get it all and then you take your glass into the dining room and set it down on your grandmother's antique cherrywood table? That ring. Just like a fairy ring, but it's a dairy ring.
*Some of us are even pro-coaster.
