Why Rent A Room When You Can Trade The Breast Milk For Free?

umas_bosomas.jpgDT reader Mimi has a communal living situation next door to her that involves a mime. So she was perhaps better prepared to see this recent Craigslist posting than I was:

We are offering a free room for a woman who is willing to provide breast milk for consumption to the household. We are an otherwise vegan house but have recently read A.O. Wilson's study of the benefits of human breast milk to all human beings of any age. This is not sexual. Neither appearance nor sexual preference are of any concern to us.

We are willing to accept one child into the house as well. We do not want to take breast milk away from a nursing child however. We also don't need gallons of breast milk but whatever you can muster; it is a nutritional supplement for members of the house who want to partake.

The room is 10'x 15' in a sunny house in Berkeley. There are 7 other people in the house and we live largely communally - shared food and house supplies. You must still pay for food, only rent is free. Reply to this posting and we will set up a time. Contact Dana.

I swear, I tried to find an image of the breastfeeding Brazilian mimes from the 1996 WABA Global Forum, but I failed. Also, who is A.O. Wilson? Do they mean E.O. Wilson? What is his study about breast milk?

How nice of them to "accept one child into the household." Do they not know how you get breastmilk in the first place?? I'd like to see the childless person who's producing enough milk to supplement a household of 7. I think "Dana" needs to put down the "A.O. Wilson" and read up on Grey's Anatomy.

Now that I think about it a little more, he's probably more of a sad clown than a true mime.

My question is - if your production goes down so it's not enough to feed 7, do you have to move out?

[no problem, just score some surplus breast milk off Craigslist. Not every lactating woman is looking to move in with a bunch of vegan mimes. -ed.]

So, wait... Uma's looking for a roommate?

(Sorry, I had a difficult time actually reading the text of the story)

[yep, seven of them. all vegan. -ed.]

"What is his study about breast milk?"

Yes sir, he likes it, he likes it a lot.

My first thought: Mmmmmmmm. Uma booooobies....

My second thought: Dubya. Tee. Eff. EWWWWWWWW!

See, it's not nearly as far of a trip from delight to revulsion as you might think!

Fucking hippies.

Under what vegan system is it OK to keep a human for milk but not OK to keep a cow for milk? At least the cow gets food, all the human gets is a room.
