Warner Bros. and Green Lantern have teamed up with the "Got Milk" campaign and even have an interactive website to promote it.

They ask if you are worthy, and go on to say you need some "lowfat chocolate milk" to give you fuel, while promoting it's vitamin and mineral "benefits."

This may sound a bit preachy, but milk just ain't good for you -- and it bugs me when I see these "Got Milk" campaigns.

Sorry, it's not.

Milk's for baby cows, folks!

I'm not going to go into all the pros vs, cons, if you are really interested you can google it for yourself, but I haven't had a glass of milk in over 7 years -- and I haven't shrunk an inch.

I have two young kids who haven't had a drop either -- and they have never had one cavity, earache or infection (boy, do my friends who have kids of their own love hearing that one!). Funny, they are growing up to be strong lads, as well!

Okay, enough of that.

"Got milk?"

Yep  - got my Almond Milk, right here!

(Sorry, Soy is no good, either! - Doh!)
