Breast milk for lodging

Boing Boing reports on this Craig’s List opportunity:

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.

I can’t say it’s my cup of tea. But if the appeal of breast milk catches on, it’s only a matter of time before it goes commercial and you can buy it at your local grocer. There will an organic option, a vegan option, and an imported (but fair trade, of course) version. My suggested brand name is Mama Milk. When it hits the market, connoisseurs will complain that the stuff in the store isn’t as good as what you used to get at the local farmer’s market.

Surprisingly, the apartment is in Berkeley. Go figure.
