Milking Is The New Planking
Students in Newcastle, England have come up with a worthy heir to the “planking” craze: “milking.” What you do is you buy a big thing of milk and pour it over your head in public. Seems very funny to me, for some reason.
YouTube-comment reaction to the video, posted 4 days ago, has been mixed. “that is foo kin quality,” said commenter “england8943,” while commenter “almighty jass” opined, “witless poshos.” “Poshos” appears to be a class-based putdown.
So far “milkers” have been filmed pulling the stunt in the middle of a road, outside bars, in a train station, and after popping out of garbage bins. (Due to my English degree, now I’m thinking about the characters in dustbins in Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, although they weren’t pouring milk on their heads and also they didn’t have legs.)
Anyway, I approve this nascent internet craze!

You try, and you try, and you try, and you try. But sometimes, love is not enough. You don’t understand. You don’t know what to do.
“Has anyone ever told you that you kind of look like Mr. Squidward from SpongeBob Squarepants? Only when you squint and make that face — the one I really hate.”
We neglect that we are one, an entity.
I may not be with anyone, but I’ve got enough self-respect to know that I deserve someone who values me. I don’t deserve someone that treats me so appallingly, and neither does she.
