Boycott Sweden!

I couldn't believe the article I read on CNN this morning:

Swedish treat: Moose cheese
TOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -- It's healthy and tasty, for those with expensive tastes.

Farmers in northern Sweden are milking moose and making cheese, which they sell for a lot of dough -- nearly $500 a pound. The buyers include upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden.


How dare they! Milk a Moose!! Good think they didn't try getting that friendly with me. I'd show them.

So, please join me in my boycott against those cruel cruel Swedes.


Finally! Animal rights in action!

You wouldn't have this problem if you were a cuter animal. Do you cuddle?

These statement takes on another meaning all together because I know who The Moose is.

I've tried, but my horns tend to get in the way... But in the spring they have a nice velvety texture...

Sorry, Mooses(meese?) aren't cute, and they don't cuddle. You're lucky avoid the Alpo factory.

What you complaining about? "You can milk anything with nipples" according to Gay Fokker (in Meet the Parents)

And me thinking milk comes from factories

disclaimer: my father was CEO of the largest AI firm in the country, which owns well over a thousand bulls and several hundred cows (as surrogate mothers).

How is it that 4 mods have replied to the OP and not one has questioned his moniker? Or has the policy changed to allow blatantly obvious fake names?

The "Moose" is a Javaranch entity: the electronic embodiment of the spirit of the 'Ranch. You might have seen his picture here or there.

I usually only come out on the 1st of April (April Fools Day for those who aren't familiar), but thought that this was such an outrageous practice that I believed it was my duty to break my silence and bring it to the attention of all the JavaRanchers.

See it like this: at last Moose have gotten total equality to cows.
Used to be you were only slaughtered for meat and leather, now you're milked as well.
