I’ve had the idea for Mulk, the pro-biotic milk-alternative, for quite a while. I think a carton of Mulk may have even appeared in a previous strip. While I’m not a die-hard health-food nut, I’m very interested in alternative/advanced nutrition and do try to keep healthy. We shop at a lot of different stores, many of which carry a variety of milk alternatives. In addition to soy, rice, and almond milk, I’ve also seen flax milk and maybe sesame milk, but I think that was in a dream. I think the role that milk plays in kids’ lives is both fun and hilarious. I think it’s fair to say that a lot of kids don’t like milk, but it seems to follow them wherever they go. It’s at school. It’s at home. Wherever you go adults are always telling you to “drink milk” because it’s good for you and “makes you strong.” Milk! Milk! Milk! …I bet most kids think it could never get any worse, but we know it could. And, in case you didn’t catch it the first time, Mulk is…GRAY. Be thankful you have milk, kids. I fear Mulk may have no nutritional benefit at all.
