Whale Milk Ice Cream

A tasty marine treat

Ice cream made from the milk of whales might be quite tasty (I believe whale milk is very rich and fatty, so it would be of the 'premium' variety). And I imagine a whale produces quite a bit more milk than your average cow, so you could get plenty of it.

Milking whales would also serve as a fun and profitable challenge to 'extreme scuba divers' who are bored with just swimming around and looking at coral.

       where are whales udders??? poor little baby whales, having their milk nicked from under them. Its Margaret Thatcher all over again.

       Yeah. Might be tough getting them to stand still so the milk goes in the bucket.

       What a fantastic idea. I love whales and whale paraphernalia. Super!

       Croissant just for the extreme scuba divers.

       Whale milking is described in "The Deep Range" (1957), Arthur C Clarke.
"What flavour is it?"

       'Ee took me leg for half a pint o' milk that damn vanilla whale.

       Killer whales sometimes separate a baby whale from its mother and eat it. You could wait until this happens and then milk the mother for just long enough to prevent her getting a painful buildup of milk.

       I'm torn on this one. On one hand, it sounds a bit cruel. On the other, it would remove the same treatment from quite a few cows for every whale needed and I assume the whales will at least be free-range. Regarding the endagered species bit, this would make preservation directly profitable and should help grow populations. [+] for the creative thought.

       I presume the fishbones against this were actually a marine-based compliment. (+).

       We could cross this idea with the clothes dryer ice cream system.   

       Krill flavored, indeed. Might want to do a prototype batch of shrimp ice cream.

       on that note, I'm just gonna go an mix up a BaconShake™ for breakfast

       Um, I think that's whale ice cream, rather than whale milk ice cream...ew either way.
DrCurry, Feb 28 2006

       I want me some whale cheese... Can we make some of that too?
Pac-man, Feb 28 2006

       No, I think you'd get enough that you could package it in larger containers than that.
normzone, Mar 03 2006

       How is everyone so sure this would not taste good? I'm sure the first time a person started sucking on a cow everyone thought him disgusting.
Worldgineer, Mar 03 2006

       Why bother with milking a whale when it would be simpler to milk an elephant?
Jscotty, Mar 03 2006

       Ooh, look. Mouse milk is on sale. I love the cheese flavor.
