Had to say it:
That it's made from cows' milk, which is the proper food of young calves, NOT adult humans.
Also, it's horribly unhealthy (in more ways than one).
Tastes great, though. Highly addictive.

Out of curiosity
Where does the term "meme" originate?
Which is really an elegant way of axing: "What exactly is a "meme"?

Re: Out of curiosity
I believe it was coined by Richard Dawkins, in his book The Selfish Gene -- after n-1 chapters of talking about evolution and genetics, little biological agents dumbly fighting their way past entropy, he spends the last chapter pondering how informational units might do the same. This was the weakest chapter of the book in my opinion, but it's had a lot of influence. Anyway, it either originates or popularizes the term.
