For those who have long suspected that the education system in America has become an assembly line for the drones and dummies who will fit perfectly in a liberal society, this story is for you.
A recent survey by a U.S. Dairy industry group determined that a whopping seven-percent of respondents actually believed that chocolate milk came from brown cows.
In a country where millions now believe that they are surrounded by approximately 63 million Russian agents, this is not a positive development.

According to the New York Post “Disturbing number of people confused about chocolate milk”:
Seven percent of American adults think chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a new report.
The Innovation Center for US Dairy, an industry group, said that startling result was part of a survey conducted in April of 1,000 people about the role milk plays in their daily lives.
A solid 48 percent admitted they weren’t quite sure whether chocolate milk comes straight from ‘ol brown Bessy.
More than 29 percent said they use their children as an excuse to buy chocolate milk for themselves.
And then there was the 7 percent who said they believed a bunch of bull that brown cows are the ones that produce chocolate milk.
I suppose that there can be some optimism in the 48 percent who weren’t sure whether chocolate milk came from brown cows but somehow that isn’t exactly reassuring.
It seems that the 2006 satire Idiocracy is looking more like prophecy by the day.
