Mean Betty on Lindsay Lohan, Babies and Breast Milk
What do Lindsay Lohan and breast-milk cheese have in common?
Poor baby! Uh-oh … Mean Betty better not say that about Lindsay Lohan or LiLo just might sue. That’s exactly what the enterprising young lady is doing to the financial company E-Trade, because she believes they modeled a “milkaholic” baby in their latest commercial after her.
In the spot (which Mean Betty finds rather odd, regardless of Lindsay’s alleged connection, but that’s neither here nor there), a baby girl accuses her boyfriend baby (??) of cheating on her with … none other than … that “milkaholic Lindsay.” Take a look yourself, and as you watch, keep in mind Lindsay Lohan is suing to the tune of $100 million.
According to the New York Post, LiLo’s lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, says “Lindsay” has the same single-name recognition as, oh, say, Oprah or Madonna.
“Many celebrities are known by one name only, and E-Trade is using that knowledge to profit,” Ovadia said.
“They used the name Lindsay,” Ovadia said. “They’re using her name as a parody of her life. Why didn’t they use the name Susan? This is a subliminal message. Everybody’s talking about it and saying it’s Lindsay Lohan.”
In other weird milk news, a trendy NYC brasserie is serving breast milk cheese.
And people are eating it.
Daniel Angerer, who runs Klee Brasserie in Chelsea, said customers started demanding “human cheese” after he blogged about his efforts to make it, the New York Post reported.
“The phone was ringing off the hook,” the chef explained. “So I prepared a little canape of breast milk cheese with figs and Hungarian pepper.”
“It tastes like cow’s milk cheese, kind of sweet,” he added, noting that the flavor depends on “what the mother eats.”
