Breast milk ice cream gets boobed by authorities

Ice cream made from breast milk has been removed from a central London restaurant on health grounds following complaints by members of the public. Surely not those who tasted it. The owner of the ice cream parlour says the stuff is very fine indeed. It's pasteurised and excellent. The ice cream was churned with donations from London mother Victoria Hiley, and served with a rusk and an optional shot of Calpol or Bonjela. Each serving costs £14. All very enterprising in a less than enterprising year so far.

Along comes Westminster City Council to scoop the confection off the counters and experiment with it in their laboratories. Tory Westminster Councillor Brian Connell said, "Selling foodstuffs made from another person's bodily fluids can lead to viruses being passed on and, in this case, potentially hepatitis. As the local authority we will support small businesses and applaud innovative ideas wherever possible, but must protect the health of consumers." Pity he's not so hot on hospital filth or catering establishments with rats as inhabitants.

I'd think that "bodily fluids" of another person which had been pasteurised were far more efficacious than some of the so-called food fed to animals. Mad cow disease didn't come from breast milk ice cream! I think this is more about the sensitivities of a couple of Brits unable to see the funny side of this enterprise. If people want to pay £14 for an ice cream delight that's their business. What if the council finds out that this ice cream is 100% virus free and hepatitis negative? Maybe they will go to the Council of Europe for a verdict, from the fallen madonna with the big boobies.
