The last breast milk I had was burped up by a baby while I was holding him above my head. It went right into my mouth - not good. I might have puked on the spot if I weren't laughing so hard. Still, I would try breast milk cheese.
I admit it. I find her funny and hot. I can't explain it other than I have questionable taste in women and comedians.
