Before you get to writing the local ice cream truck licensing authority with complaints of a porno themed ice cream truck you saw over on The GeoGee Experience Blog, pump your brakes, pull over, put the keyboard in park.
The truck in the photo is definitely involved in the commodity of milk, so it is not false advertising. Its driver does not blare that annoying bell enhanced jingle, or hawk frozen confections to whoever hails it to pull over.
It hawks good old real mommy breast milk. Sort of.
It’s formally dubbed The Milk Truck., The converted ice cream truck with a big ole’
titty breast on top — isn’t the rolling noisemaker kids run up to. It is a space for mothers to breastfeed, dreamed up by artist Jill Miller. Miller, who received her MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles, unveiled the project in 2011 at the Pittsburgh Biennial at the Andy Warhol Museum with the “mission of advocating for the rights of babies to eat wherever they are.” Now that’s a good thing, and I’m down with that.
The colorful pink, red, and blue mobile breastfeeding unit is a safe, welcoming haven for mothers to feed their babies. It has been no secret some restaurants and public establishments have frowned upon Mothers breastfeeding their babies in their establishments.
I for one do not see the problem with a baby eating when it wants, just as we do. In addition, no, I don’t have some veiled perverted agenda for supporting public breastfeeding. I’m just one that feels a Mother that wants and needs to feed her baby should be allowed to do so in peace and in a comfortable environment, be it public or private. I’m serious when I say that
Therefore, here is a step toward, hopefully more venues where Moms can finally feed their hungry babies while they are out and about in peace,
Now let me warn those of you that indulge in cigarettes that don’t come out of a pack of 20 with your state stamp on the package that may see this truck and attempt to tell someone you saw it. DON’T DO IT!
“Heyyy, Heyyy, dude, man I saw a truck with a titty on top of it” Listener thought and response. “Man you better leave that stuff alone you smoking, you’re gone” I’m serious man, it had a boob on top and two little ones on the side looking at me”
In addition, I would like to propose in the quest to “Keep it Real” I think, as the truck gets older, the breast on top should sag over the side just a little. (Female readers thinking “This guy should really stick to blogging, he absolutely has no future in comedy). Got it ladies-still love the heck out of every one of you though.
Coming up in a future post. The mobile sperm donor truck. Guess what’s on top of that one! It won’t be going through any tunnels or under any overpasses that’s for sure!
