I've actually been meaning to post this one for awhile. I came upon this little scene while cleaning up after a good breakfast of Pancakes (its capitalized because pancakes this good needs capitalization), pan fried bacon, and of course, milk.
Now, when i say milk, i'm not talking about that B&P crap you buy at your local. I'm talking about MILK. Braum's milk. Pure, unadulterated (well, unfortunately, they do have to pasteurize and homogenize it), straight from their own dairy right here in state, Grade A Holstein milk.
I know your asking, what did he mean by B&P? So i'll tell you. Back a few years ago, a news crew from OKC did some studies on the cow's milk sold in all the local groceries, including many "national" brands. Their findings? All... that would be as in entirely, completely, totally, every one of them, contained in varying amounts...are you ready for this? Blood and pus... Folks, i'm not making this up...if i could find the report to post here i would...but i don't forget stuff like this. Oh, i did forget to mention...the only dairy company that consistently DID NOT have said putrifications? You got it...Braum's. Well, sure, you could argue the point that dairy's use all kinds of countermeasures to prevent all that garbage and obviously pasteurization and homogenization remove basically everything but the calcium and water. And who knows, maybe it was all bunk.
Regardless, i didn't drink it because of that...i didn't KNOW that until the report...i drank it because it was just WAY better tasting milk than anything i could find in any other store. Now, i know that some, if not a majority of you are out of state, and cannot buy Braum's milk, nor have you probably ever even heard the name. So, let me state it this way...to us here where the wind comes sweepin' down the plains...Braum's is to milk (and milk related products) as Ben & Jerry's is to ice cream where you are. Yeah, its THAT good. The only thing better is a local dairy that i stop by on occasion to get THE REAL DEAL (i.e. unpasteurized/ nonhomogenized beautiful cream on the top M.I.L.K.) and I should know...my Grandpa was a wheat and dairy farmer, and dang good at it too. He had the best milk in the county, if not the state...(WELL OF COURSE I'M PARTIAL!) so you could say, good milk is in my blood.
And i'd like to keep it that way...milk in my blood, not the other way round.
Jiminy Christmas! I have never digressed so far from my original intended subject!
Anyhoo, back to the comedic, yet profound scene... One (and i don't know which) of the Royals did this little number...i was just about to pick the cup up and decided there was some psychology at work here.
How do you view this? Is the cup half on...or is it half off?
