Dannon’s Birth Control on the Bottom Yogurt makes it so you don’t to choose between the only two things that matter to you as a women according to TV. Mmm, crunchy! And it kills two birds with one spoonful — you’ll be regular in terms of your period and your butt period. Score! [via Yahoo!]
Yesterday, in Colorado, President Obama allegedly got “attacked” by some frozen yogurt. “A woman got very excited and spilled yogurt on me,” he said of the incident. God, I hate when that happens. I’m a frozen yogurt addict, so it happens to me a lot. Even when I’m not excited. Anyhow, the girl accused of “yogurting” the President is speaking out. University of Colorado student Kolbi Zerbest was falsely accused. According to an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” she did not spill yogurt on Obama’s pant leg. What really happened: The Secret Service made her put her parfait (not fro-yo) on the ground, and it was a photog who kicked it at Obama. That’s right, Kolbi, blame it on the paps. At least she takes full responsibility for eating the yogurt.[Business Insider]
Jezebel is reporting that Yoplait is pulling some ads after complaints have been rolling in that the women in the ads echo the inner monologues of people with eating disorders.
I don’t want to get into that (except to say I really wish the whole planet could get past the concept of “I ‘deserve’ to eat this or that”–we don’t really ‘deserve’ anything, food-wise, except maybe food that isn’t smeared with fecal matter) but I do want to say it’s about time Yoplait is being brought to the floor for another reason: their commercials give the impression that dessert flavored yogurt is as good as dessert, and that is simply not true.

Oh thank god. There’s been an update in the case of the yogurt that tastes like semen. A couple weeks ago, I told you about the 28-year-old Albuquerque woman who said the yogurt sample she was given at her local grocery store tasted like “bodily fluids.” In fact, in her statement to police she said, “I spit it out on the floor many times cuz I was upset. [The manager Catherine Flores] told me it was a Greek yogurt. People love it, it has lot of protein on it.” Ahem. Police arrested Anthony Garcia, 31, the supermarket worker who gave the woman the yogurt, because he had outstanding bench warrants, and sent the yogurt to the lab for testing. Well the results are in! And it seems that the woman’s discerning palette was correct! The yogurt did indeed contain semen, and though Garcia maintains his innocence, a judge issued a warrant for DNA and blood samples to make sure he doesn’t have any diseases.

Hello. Are you eating? Maybe stop for a second. Especially if you are eating yogurt. So, a woman in Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the police because she said a yogurt sample she was given at her local grocery store “tasted like bodily fluids” aka semen. Police arrested Sunflower Market employee Anthony Garcia, 31, on outstanding bench warrants, but are currently conducting lab tests on the yogurt in question to find out if it does indeed contain ejaculate — or just tastes like it. Speaking of… Keep reading »
Yesterday, we told you that sending in your Yoplait yogurt lids was an easy way to contribute to the fight against breast cancer — at the very least, those pink lids make you think about the disease every day when you eat your breakfast. However, we just want to make it clear that we don’t want you to start downing yogurt like it’s you’re job. Some organizations are against Yoplait’s Save Lids to Save Lives campaign, saying that the company uses milk from cows treated with an artificial growth hormone, which increases their milk production. Breast cancer is a health concern associated with the hormone’s use, but right now there is no clearcut evidence. We think you can decide for yourselves if you want to eat Yoplait, but if you are going to do so, you might as well send in your lids. Keep reading »
