Kids today are such pussies.

LATER: Okay, so maybe they're not all pussies.

Shit! When I was in elementary school milk came in glass bottles, and you had to peel the foil top off. And the milkman delivered (where do you think I got these awesome cheekbones?). And the Wright brothers were experimenting with aeroplanes.

I'm obviously not as old as, ahem, Velociman, but I do remember milk in glass bottles.

At school we could buy a milk token for two cents and trade it for a paper half pint at recess or lunch.

As for home milk delivery, when I had my paper route they were a good source of "dairy" at 3:00 in the morning. We'd drink a quart and throw the incriminating evidence down a storm drain. Sometimes there was chocolate milk, but not often.

I think youngsters today would drink a lot more "dairy" if they could steal it off of front porches. Has anyone done a study on that?

Of course, Queenie, you're right about kids today. Hell, mine have velcro on their shoes, damned sissies.

The last time I drank Milk, I think it came out of a titty. I didn't have to open anything but my mouth. No unwrapping, it was just "there". Kind of a "self serve" type deal. Later in life, they tried to get me to tear up paper boxes, but that wasn't happenin'. I went straight for the CoCola and the Iced Tea.

Kid's today... well, they're what you let 'em be. I prefer mine a little on the redneck side. Keeps the competition honest.

Okay, so we didn't really go for milk in school much here in the UK when I was a kid, but if children are having to be talked through opening a carton for most of their lunch hour then I'd say not getting enough milk may be the least of their worries.

"Those damn square containers are awfully hard for kids," says New Hampshire Agriculture Commissioner Steve Taylor

Do you believe that bullshit? Assholes like him should taks a bus.
