Who was the first person who saw a cow's udders and said "GREAT...I think that I'll DRINK what comes out of that"???

I don't know if you've noticed, but human women come equipped with their very own udders. It's not really a leap from that and "hey, I wonder what this animal's milk tastes like!" The real wonder is why in this society we really only drink cow's milk. Goat's milk is consumed on occasion but even that seems weird to most.

I want to buy a damn gallon BEAR'S MILK ROOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAR

I've notice this a time or two...and if I play my cards right, I'll get to see it for myself one of these days. :D

I'll warn you right now that if they are childless or have children who are beyond the nursing age, no matter how hard you squeeze on their udders no milk will come out and in addition it tends to give them an unpleasant demeanor. Even if they are actively lactating, it is considered crude to ask them to "pop some of the good stuff" into your Rice Krispies.
