The Latest Student Craze: 'Milking'
British students like pouring milk on their heads

(Newser) – What an udder delight: Students in England have taken to pouring entire bottles of milk on themselves in apparent protest against "being milked by the government," the Guardian reports. And they've filmed themselves doing it all over—in hotels, shopping malls, roundabouts, and gas stations. It's just the latest among weird UK student fads, including:

  • planking—lying face down in public
  • Batmanning—hanging upside down in public
  • the "cinnamon challenge"—eating a tablespoon of cinnamon in a minute without water ... apparently not that easy
One benefit of the earlier trends: They may be more hygienic than pouring milk on your head. "The smell of sour milk is present all over our house," says one "milkman."

This is actually one of the best uses of "milk" I've seen recently. It certainly shouldn't be taken internally.
