If I say to you someone is “milking”, it would usually mean that someone is getting milk from an animal like a cow. At a push “milking it” ca mean trying top get the maximum profit from a situation. But this month “milking” has a new meaning, thanks to the wonderful webby thingy.

(The latest craze to sweep the internet “milking” can go alongside planking as a pointless exercise, albeit in this case less dangerous. The craze, started by 5 students at Newcastle University, involves pouring milk over your head in a public place without showing any emotion and then walking away. The video ‘Milking Newcastle’ went viral and had over 300,000 views within 5 days.

When I found the video, I was surprised to say the least. It’s an odd thing to do, but relatively harmless in the great scheme of things, but of course everyone has an opinion: So far the video has amassed 632,566 views 2,825 likes and  1,189 dislikes.

I will just say that it is a bit of an insult to the cows who produce the milk.  Yes, I am an old fart, by all means make up your own mind:-
