Oh, milk. You kinda fucked this one up.

This is the part where I would assure you people that this is an unretouched photo that I actually took from my car window but I don’t know that it’s even necessary to clarify that, simply because it’s not possible for me to get high enough to come up with something this fucked up.

I’m not really sure what the message is here.  I’m assuming that it’s a tragic reminder of the horror of September 11th.  Brought to you by the goodness of milk.

Or maybe it’s just a weird coincidence that they’ve combined a 9-11 battle cry with pictures of cheese and whipped cream.  

Or maybe they actually meant, literally, let’s roll…away from the goodness of milk?  I don’t know.  I can’t even joke about it because it’s a fucking national tragedy.  There’s really nothing funny or milk-related about September 11th at all.  So please, Big Milk, stop now.  You are making my stomach hurt.

PS.  Yes. “Big Milk”.  You call tobacco companies “Big Tobacco” so you would call the milk companies “Big Milk”.  I don’t understand why I have to keep explaining this to people.

PPS.  Hi.  I know.  There’s pretty much no way to leave a funny comment on a September 11th related post.  You’re pretty much fucked on the whole “comment of the day thing”. 

PPPS.  Okay, fine.  Here’s something you can comment on with impunity.  Yesterday I twittered the link to a photo of a fail-whale tattoo.  As with many of my twitters, things quickly went very,very badly.  This is an artistic rendering of why I shouldn’t be allowed on twitter:

They really shouldn’t let me near computers at all.

  4. Yeah, except that the link that I linked to was actually a site kinda making fun of him and not actually his site at all. I’m an asshole. It’s pretty much official.

    Ps. I’ve been kinda crazy actually. My medications are not working well and I’m going to ask my doctor to test me for ADD because I think I’m losing my mind. Wait, did you want a real answer? You probably just wanted a “I’m fine”, right?

    I’m fine.

  5. Oh and also my ankle hurts.

  6. Because nothing bad will ever happen to the U.S. of A if we’re all pounding the milk down?

    I never liked milk anyway. We should do the boycott thing like they say to do on e-mail with gas.

    Wait, wouldn’t that mean no cheese either?

    What about ice cream? Can we still eat ice cream?

    Oh, shit. Never mind.

  10. Maybe they’re trying to say something about the Olympics? Like, from the goodness of milk comes USA on the world stage

  12. What happened was the Milk was put on the “Do Not Fly” list as part of the Patriot Act. So now not only does milk have to be trucked across the country, but it has to prove that it’s 100% American. No Al-Queda cows for us!

  18. I’m actually glad you tweeted about Critter’s tat— I probably never would have discovered his blog otherwise.

    I’m a (ahem) good Texas girl…and those guys with mohawks, ear rings and ink are just so freaking hot to us! Add to the fact that he is a devoted Daddy–and he is smmmmmooooking!

    Martie’s last blog post..Can You Wear Red Satin To An Episcopal Church?…

  19. The tattoo- I don’t blame you- I would have said the same thing, well, maybe not on Twitter but you are right, it is a horrible idea. And how were you supposed to know that he would be on Twitter???

    As far as the truck goes, perhaps there is a contingent out there that thinks that cows with massive milking ability are being hidden somewhere in Iraq and maybe Bush wants to send troops there to uncover the hidden milking conspiracy?

    Jen W’s last blog post..It doesn’t get more pathetic than this. No, I mean it.

  20. I don’t recall “Let’s Roll” being associated with 9/11, which is why I read the back of the truck and thought, “who’s the genius who PAID an ad team to come up with a BIG MILK slogan that grammatically suggests running the fuck away from all things dairy?” But then you told me about the 9/11 slogan part, and all my smartassery plummeted like a lead balloon. Or a fail whale carried by chickens.

  23. My ankle hurts too. Weird. Did you fall? Does someone have a voodoo doll of both of us with a pin in the ankles. I don’t think I pissed off the fail whale tattoo guy, so we can rule him out.

    Actually, I don’t think very many people know who I am, so maybe they just made a voodoo doll of you and then it ended up looking too much like me. Can that happen?

    Maybe you just fell? Hope it feels better.

  24. Shut UP, germ beat me to it. I think it was some sly ubermarketing (hey, I always forget the code for umlauts over my u, so please read that as oobermarketing) from the anti-milk segment of the populace. They totally snuck one of theirs into the environs of Dairydom to bring down the system from the inside.

    Hey, which ankle?

    pee ess…I’m sorry I’ve somehow contributed to this most recent faux pas. and I agree with chag, your interpretation is much, much more hot than the original.

    Speaking of worst tatoos, the worst I ever saw was a lady who had a giant penis tatooed on her ass (yes, penis was going into her asshole). See, it pays to be a nurse after all.

  46. Now I’m all paranoid that the lady with the penis ass tatoo will read this and get offended, and then I’ll be an asshole.

Um…yeah..like the time (er…yesterday) when I met my new neighbor the first time and was telling this whole long charming story about something that doesn’t really matter now and part of my punchline involved the phrase “tramp stamp” and her face changed, and she turned around, leaned over and picked up her kid and…well…I too, am an asshole.

    And my husband said something like, “Why do I let you out of the house?”

    And I am so getting my lawn set on fire this week.

  52. I don’t understand. Why, why?, would anyone want to get that tattooed on his body? I mean if anyone wanted a Twitter related tattoo the bird drawn by Hugh MacLeod at Gaping Void is way cooler.

    Becky Mochaface’s last blog post..We are all a little crazy

  53. Here’s the thing. If you’re a big dork, and get a dorky tattoo, you need to hear it. I am talking to anyone with a logo tattoo, or a cartoon character, or somebody’s name. You’re dumb. I mean it. Hear me now!!!
    What if in a couple years, you decide you are overwhelmed with whatever your tattoo is. Like everyone you know at every gift giving opportunity buys you Tweety Bird stuff because, “She loves TB so much she has a tattoo of it on her ass” (A girl in my high school did that). So then you start to hate Tweety Bird because everywhere you look there is that damn yellow bird. But you’re stuck. Unless you pay big bucks to have it removed or tattooed over. You’ll forever be reminded of the time you were obsessed with Tweety Bird.

    Thank you for letting me lose my mind.

    Woodlandmama’s last blog post..Maybe I should go back to 1964!

    ali’s last blog post..Eating Disorders in the Media: The Little Misconception That Could

  60. Maybe the whole “let’s roll” thing is purely a trucker term that the 9-11 people somehow knew. So it’s one of those things that the truckers kinda got it stolen from them and now they are trying to slowly take back by camoflauging (I have no idea how to spell that) with milky goodness talk.

    The whole fail whale tattoo thing is really weird. I Twitter but I don’t Tattoo. and even if I did both I wouldn’t mix the two. Just seems really scary…

Not like a foot VD or and STD or is it STI now because STD is too scary a word to tell teenagers when you’re trying to prevent them from catching themselves some garbage dick so we’ve got to soften it to Infection, which sounds light and fluffy like unicorns and rainbows, except they’re unicorns and rainbows with knives in your under-bits? I dunno. Either way, no, I don’t have metatarsal warts, I have a totally DIFFERENT sort of foot thing. And would totally let you suck on my toes stick my feet in your mouth if you needed to.

  63. I think this whole milk truck debacle is unfortunate but explainable:

    Dude drives milk truck. Milk truck already has fancy, shiny, milk-products decal. So pretty! Then dude driving truck decides he wants to pay homage to 9/11 victims so he buys his own, “Let’s Roll” flag decal.
    THEN HE SUFFERS FROM UNFORTUNATE DECAL PLACEMENT by putting it right over the milk junk. Instead of, you know, on the side of his truck or something. (Although maybe there are some kind of regulations governing this. I have no idea.) Either way, once the Dairy Board gets wind of this (and they will now, thanks to this post) they’re gonna slap his ass so fast with a “Cease & Desist” order he won’t know what hit him or his milk truck.

    Momma’s Tantrum’s last blog post..Advisement To The Golden Arches

  67. Lesley (comment #63) beat me to it. It seems that some truckers are allowed to decal their own trucks. I’ve seen a lot of religious decals on commercial trucks, although not unfortunately juxtaposed with corporate logos the way this one is.

    Kile’s last blog post..Motorcycle accident 1986

  69. I think – I hope I’m wrong – that BIG MILK, might be suggesting that the courage, etc displayed on those who took down that flight (am cringing as I write this) CAME from DAIRY products. Which is to say, BIG MILK things I may as well stop teaching my kids to think for themselves, think on their feet, think, think, think, be brave, take action and try, try, try & just give them a cheese stick instead.
    That is not my plan.

    I’m horrified I that I think I even understood what BIG MILK meant. Please don’t hate me. I may switch to SOY now, perhaps I will receive different, better messages.

  79. Um. Please never doubt my ability to make a “funny” (some people see it as rude and/or inappropriate) comment at any occassion.

    I think you can safely assume that “Let’s Roll” is in reference to 9/11 considering it’s right under a rippling ‘Merican Flag. I suppose the lesson is that…American milk is better than European milk…? Because we might get…Mad Cow disease?

    And I love the Fail Whale. Love the idea, love the tattoo, love your inadvertent bitchiness.

  80. Wow. Wow. Wow. The Milk people really need to see this post. The BIG Milk people. Stunning.

    Did I ever tell you about the time I wrote an article about a guy in a giant pizza slice costume who was sent by the milk advisory board to do cash giveaways in pizza joints — to highlight the fact that people were eating pizza with “real California cheese” on it? I know, it takes too long to even explain. Head hurts.

    Anyway, I spent the day with him and the guy asked me to take pictures of him in a strip club in the pizza suit. He’d been in a van with that suit, alone, for two weeks already, on tour. These are the things one comes up with, apparently.

    He told his handlers what we’d done, and the milk people totally freaked out, so I didn’t end up getting to use those photos (or mention the strip club) in the article, but now that I’m a breastfeeding mom, I think the pics would have been SO ON POINT.

    Missed opportunity. That’s all I’m saying, milk marketers.

  91. I know I can’t be the only one who remembers Gee W saying, “Let’s roll” as part of a pep talk he gave to the people of NY. Remember? Then a whole bunch of companies decided to put that slogan on their trucks to symbolize the American spirit. For a couple of years, I saw them all over the place. Not so much anymore.

  92. well we just won’t talk about the fail whale vibrator then will we – they might be on twitter as well.

    and i’m not even touching the let’s roll Big Milk thing, although that’s a really weird looking canister thingee with the little red phallic thing pointing up at the flag – is it giving the flag the bird? i’m confused and will shut up now.

    Gina (@amoxcalli on Twitter)’s last blog post..Arroz con pollo

  93. I blogged this a while back but it fits here:

    After 9/11/2001, my always very patriotic patriotic father turned super patriot, when I mentioned that a local store had a display of flags on sale after the attacks he said, “Anyone who doesn’t own an American Flag already should be shot”. This was followed by my sister delivering perhaps the only funny thing ever said about 9/11:

    “The way he’s reacting you’d think they attacked the Hustler building.”

  94. You know, you should post all 10 of the first comments and then you’d never need to feel anxious.

    Yes, I would be a great person to have around the day after a disaster.

    And back to the topic at hand…um, I really have nothing to say about Sept. 11 or a weird ass twitter tattoo. Some people collect string.

    Kylie’s last blog post..Stalkers!

  95. So, here’s my question – how did the Critter guy find out you tweeted about his tattoo? Does he follow everyone in the Twitter-verse?? Did someone rat you out?

    gurukarm’s last blog post..I’m baaaccckkkk!

  96. Did you know you’re hot?


    people, go vote for Jenny.

    Now I have to go google this fail whale vibrator thing Gina mentioned. I need a good laugh

    ktjrdn’s last blog post..That’s all I have to say about that

  97. There’s this circle. In that circle are all the people who get tattos. Now, there’s another circle and in that circle live all the people on twitter.

    Seriously, I NEVER EVER EVER would have guessed there was ANY intersection between those two circles.

  99. Razor,

    “Let’s Roll” were the last words spoken by Todd Beamer on Flight 93.

  100. If there wasn’t the U.S. flag above the saying I might be ok with it assuming it was just a poor marketing judgment. But cripes that is ridiculous.

    Careful driving!

    Sara’s last blog post..Eight Not-so-Normal Ways to Know That He is The One

  101. I think “Big Milk” is totally fitting. Afterall nowadays there’s just about as much crap in conventional milk as there is in cigarettes.

    And I’m totally with you on the Fail Whale tattoo. It’s a VERY bad idea. Who would do that??? Honestly, dude.

    (Boy, I sure hope the same guy that busted you on Twitter isn’t going to bust me here in your comment section. On the other hand, I have a right to free speech. And he has a right to lame-ass tattoos. So we are all set.)

    Elisa’s last blog post..Take me to the fair… or NOT!

  102. jennydecki’s comment made me lol. once again it appears I defy convention by living in the bisection created by body art and tweeting.

  103. For some reason I think “Big Dairy” would be even better.

    I’m also wondering if the Beamer family is getting royalties for that phrase from Big Dairy.

    Because I am nothing if not crass and materialistic.

  104. And I love the way at the very end, down at the bottom, the truck says, “Got milk?” Very strange! Maybe it’s a milk/911 conspiracy.

    Shoegirl’s last blog post..No More Dress Rehearsals

  105. I don’t know anything about the truck, but I’ve decided I’m some kind of freak because I think the tattoo is cute.

  106. maybe milk is supposed to be patriotic? going for a new look at it these days? who knows? i is pretty funny though.

    katelin’s last blog post..The keys to grownupness.

  107. With all the craziness that’s happened in our country since the Trade towers were bombed, it almost makes me wish 9/11 never even happened. Almost. But I refuse to let anyone make me jaded.

    Stefanie’s last blog post..Open Letter To Angelina Jolie

  108. So, I had a real comment planned. But then I saw a link for Stockholm Syndrome in the BlogHer ad links, and for some reason, it made me laugh. Then I couldn’t figure out why in the hell I would laugh about Stockholm Syndrome. And so now I’m just going to hit submit comment.

    Shamelessly Sassy’s last blog post..The Ho Bath

  109. Milk always hurts my stomach (it’s a lactose thing) and this is yet another reason to be happy I don’t drink milk…

    sadira’s last blog post..The World Wide Photo Walk…2008

  110. ok, weird back of the truck.

    and I thought I was addicted to twitter…but now don’t feel so bad.

  111. Big Milk are such a bunch of punk assholes. 🙂

    So with you. I hate companies that use the flag or the cross to sell shit.

    PS- I hear you’re HUGE in the Netherlands.

  113. If “the Netherlands” refers to my ass, then yes. I am totally huge in the Netherlands.

    Just A. Reader

    I never knew the Netherlands was hot.

  115. Twitter reminds me of high-school. You’ve gotta be careful what you say, cause you never know who’s going to read it, and it’s easy to forget that it’s so “out there”.

    Katie’s last blog post..Eyes Bigger Than His Stomach?

  116. hahah…of COURSE he’s on twitter.

    ali’s last blog post..self mock. again. #932

  117. When I saw those tweets in real time, I spewed milk out my nose. It was a keyboard tragedy.

  118. I didn’t even know “let’s roll” was associated with 9-11. Guess because I was too busy trying to recover from being there and watching folks jump to their deaths oh and there was the whole running to save my life bit too.

    But on a lighter note – haha on the fail whale tattoo a reminder to be careful when tweeting!

    Mekhismom Aka Renée’s last blog post..The Love of a Child

  119. It’s plainly unpatriotic to make fun of milk, its transport vehicle, and its motto. Shame on you. Didn’t you see the flag?

    phd in yogurtry’s last blog post..toe fugh

  120. Jenny,
    Perhaps you are huge in the Netherland’s on skid row. You’re kinda my guilty pleasure and I’m only half as freaky deek as the Dutch. That half, by the way, might make your momma blush.

    I can't read my nametag

    I don’t drink milk. Or twitter. Or have any tattoos. But I do like whales. And I fail a lot. And I am at least a tiny bit thankful that it was Big Milk and not Brunswick that hijacked the “Let’s Roll!” phrase because if Brunswick had adopted it instead we’d all have to stop bowling out of protest and who would want that?

  122. “Big Milk” heh…..I think they had some fill in doc at the kids’ peds convinced that milk kicks serious butt because when she was talking about how my kids don’t get enough of it she used Jazz hands when referring to “The magical powers of Milk”

    domestic extraordinaire’s last blog post..Do you like Crocs?

  123. PS. Yes. “Big Milk”. You call tobacco companies “Big Tobacco” so you would call the milk companies “Big Milk”.

    Actually, I prefer “Big Cheese”.

    “Let’s Roll…” – Big Cheese

    It just *sounds* right, somehow.


    Ed T.’s last blog post..Moving Monday

  124. The truck kind of made me wonder if they’re planning on slipping some excstasy in the milk. I mean, “Let’s Roll?”

    Wendy’s last blog post..Twitting with New Friends

  125. Um, yeah. Are they trying to say that drinking milk stops terrorist attacks? I don’t get it. But, then again, I don’t get a lot of stuff.

    Is it disgustingly giggle-worthy that the comment of the day was written by Karl? Anyone? Just me? Okay. *Giggle*

  129. You know maybe they wanted to do something to honor 9/11 but at the same time leave the ad for what their company is based on. You’re not very bright are you?

  130. Guess because I was too busy trying to recover from being there and watching folks jump to their deaths

  131. Clawing my way to the top would be waaaaay too much work, so you’re safe from me. Aside from the fact that I’ve begun reading your posts aloud to my husband because I kind of worship you now.
