Chocolate Milk

Our question of the day at lunch:

N: "Mrs. Overman, how do they get chocolate milk?"

Me: "They just get regular white milk and put chocolate in it and then stir it."

B: "Oh. I thought chocolate milk came from the brown cows and this white milk comes from the white ones."

This makes me think of that Calvin and Hobbes cartoon where Calvin (a first grader) says, "Dad, who thought of getting milk from cows? Did they just think they'd squeeze those things and drink whatever came out?"

Glad I didn't have to answer that one! It DOES make you wonder, doesn't it?

I'm going to have to agree with your student. That was what I learned growing up with a baby sitter who lived on a dairy farm. Hahaha - for the record, I now know where chocolate milk really comes from. Hahaha!
