Angry dairy farmers from across Europe took to the streets of Brussels to protest high quotas and low prices, showing their displeasure by blocking traffic with tractors and then spraying torrents of milk at the European Parliament and riot police. Wild.



(This reminds me of something from a Monty Python movie)

2. That's wild!

Milk seems expensive here but i guess it's relative. Certainly an unusual way to protest.

3. If they tried that here, milk would be classed as a "dangerous weapon"

And the farmers would be treated like terrorists.

11. Milk would be added to the list of controlled substances...

thus creating a new right wing screed that something must be done about milk! And will be added to the war on drugs.

Which would give rise to the Rickets Moral Majority.

Bow legged fashion would be all the rage!
