Got.....beer????????????

The New Hampshire, the student newspaper at the University of New Hampshire, rejected an advertisement from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) that spoofed the Got Milk? ads.

Instead, they wanted to do Got Beer, claiming beer was better for you than milk.

Now, I don't really care if they believe this.

BUT.

We've got a serious alcohol problem on our college campuses that caused more kids to fail out, become alcoholics, and even die because of irresponsible alcohol use.

And PETA think this ad is a good idea?

odd.

I Like Beer...But I Love Skim Milk

I think that's ludicrous.

It's one thing if you want to spout off on the horrors of milk and dairy products, but suggesting beer as a substitute is not right.

I thought milk does the body good. I consume massive quantities everyday. I think their main concern is not milk but the ethical treatment of animals, and their willing to make any claim or push any idea(no matter if its rubbish) in the pursuit of their goal.

PETA does things to get attention drawn to their beliefs.
This campaign gets them huge publicity, and starts disscussions on the matter.

I hardly think PETA is to blame for any alchohol abuse on our campuses, no matter what they say about it, that has more to do with the gov't and the beer companys.

So if you can not get people to care about or listen to your cause(s) use shock tactics. Good idea. I would looooove to see the room of rocket scientists they have volunteering there time on the PETA ad Champaign team.

same here. if you don't want to even consume dairy, that's your prerogative, but don't spread crap about how beer is more healthy than milk. at the very least, beer dehydrates, which means you can't really drink it in lieu of milk, because you'll need something to drink afterwards, unless you want to be dehydrated, pass out, and die.

PETA is not concerned about your health.

One of their goals is to take away the right of humans to eat meat and dairy products (yes, The_Wanderer, even all of those cheeses that you enjoy).

Actually milking a cow does not harm the animal. As a matter of fact not milking a cow can lead to infections and problems for the cow. Most farms I have been to, the cows are well cared for, most times they are in their stalls when they are being milked, or are sick and need to be kept from the rest of the herd. There are tight regulations by Federal and State agencies to ensure the health of the cow and the quality of the milk.

Beer somehow being better than milk is outrageous....but then again so is throwing red paint on people with fur coats. Encouraging alcoholism is far more ethical than letting the American Farmer make their living.

your arguments are all well and good but

you seem to be forgetting that PETA, an organization for which i am neither here nor there, is making the statements based on a published work from harvard university

evidently the book to which PETA refers to is a cook book published by harvard researchers with the obvious backing of of the school.

to clarify, if it should become neccessary, i am neither for or against this idea of beer being 'better' for an individual than milk. if any of you are involved in advanced research of any kind you will know how easy it is to twist things. once these studies hit the media, or worse, advocacy groups(PETA) the twisting becomes exponential. it just seemed to me some of you were ignoring the statements made in the PETA release

I can't imagine pouring bud light into my fruity pebbles?

What's wrong with these people?

Or how about Golden Grahms and Killians Red!

The very thought!
