At Last! Ice Cream From Breast Milk

Just what the world has been waiting answer to all our problems.

Go to the BBC News blog (Feb 24).  For those who can't pass up the nouveau sensation, stop by the Icecreamists restaurant in London.

Imagine you are an anthropologist some five hundred years in the future, and you come across a weathered and scored advertisement for ice cream made from human breast milk.

At the same time you see evidence of poverty, illness, crime and all the other ills that societies have attempted to address throughout the ages.

How would you put it all together?  Will they call this the Post-Modern-Post-Rational Age?
