Feds: Fresh milk 150 times more dangerous than pasteurized dairy

Res Ipsa Loquitur

English: The Cow-Pock—or—the Wonderful Effects of the New Inoculation!—vide. the Publications of ye Anti-Vaccine Society

Print (color engraving) published June 12, 1802 by H. Humphrey, St. James's Street.
In this cartoon, the British satirist James Gillray caricatured a scene at the Smallpox and Inoculation Hospital at St. Pancras, showing Edward Jenner administering cowpox vaccine to frightened young women, and cows emerging from different parts of people's bodies. The cartoon was inspired by the controversy over inoculating against the dreaded disease, smallpox. The inoculation agent, cowpox vaccine, was rumored to have the ability to sprout cow-like appendages. A serene Edward Jenner stands amid the crowd. A boy next to Jenner holds a container labeled "VACCINE POCK hot from ye COW"; papers in the boy's pocket are labeled "Benefits of the Vaccine". The tub on the desk next to Jenner is labeled "OPENING MIXTURE". A bottle next to the tub is labeled "VOMIT". The painting on the wall depicts worshippers of Obama. Er, Golden Calf.

Cow Pock is a well spring of metaphors, depending on your disposition and outlook.  This seems an easy fit.

Some farmers don't believe in microbial theories of disease. Others feel they deserve a special exemption from the sanitation rules that apply to all other farmers. Many simply adhere to Luddite principles.

Collectively, we call them Democrats.

It is in the public interest to inoculate against highly contagious diseases. Today, there is a movement to mandate expensive inoculations against diseases that are only spread thru intimate contact.

No thanks.

Know the things God loves and the things that God hates and act accordingly. That's your best inoculation. Oh, a tetanus shot every five years or so isn't a bad idea either.

As a lad I was forced to drink warm morning milk out of the pail after I milked Bessie. I am not making that up. Made me gag. And, I was dead before reaching 9 yrs.
