The USDA is rife with corruption as they spend more than 80% of their annual $140+ billion dollar budget on "nutrition education".
WHAT?? Are you serious? It's hard to believe, do you have a source for that?

My earlier numbers were based off of some older data I had tucked away in my brain. I just looked at the 2017 numbers and here they are. The 2017 budget is $155 billion. We will spend $110 billion on "nutrition assistance" which is comprised of roughly 10 different programs. The largest one being "nutrition education".

That is a big waste of money thats for sure, unreal.

One, or nearly so, out of every two Americans believe this?

Uh-huh. That article wasn't nearly so amusing as the wondrous responses to it.

I recall a video going around some time back that showed "half" Americans didn't know what DC stood for in Washington DC..made me chuckle with some of the things the interviewees came out with. Unfortunately no clue as to how many were interviewed but guessing it wasn't "half" of Americans lol

Most people live in cities. When you add up the people that live in suburbs, rural people become a minority. If you took that same survey and did a regional study, you would surely find significant differences. What plant does corn come from? Every rural person I know can identify a corn field. Moreover, you will find laypeople who can identify where cuts of meat come from too (mostly hunters). Now factor in how abysmal our education system has become and be glad most Americans can even identify a cow.

Well.. Where do buffalo wings come from? I've never seen a buffalo flying. Something is fishy here.

Or is it fowl??

Just what is chicken of the sea, anyway?

Not only that, you call scones, biscuits. You drink sweet tea (who the heck drinks unsweetened tea?). You call lemonade, clear soda. You use weird and strange flavoured dairy creamer and not pure milk from a white cow. You're all bonkers.

Once i watched a documentary about food in the former USA.
They showed some pupils a variety of different vegetables, nobody could name any of the vegetables. Maybe they would recognize them coming in a package out of a fridge in the supermarket, when the name is written on that package.

Best thing was, the kids were asked how many legs a chicken owns.
Most of them said six.

Because if you buy packets of frozen chickenlegs, there are 6 chickenlegs in these packages.
So those kids thought chicken have to own six legs...

Sad world...

The old saying "how now brown cow" springs to mind.

Are you sure there isn't chocolate cows?? I mean I see chocolate easter bunnies. So if we can have a chocolate bunny why can't we have a chocolate cow??

I knew a guy who thought they fed chocolate to cows, waited a while, then milked them. Seriously. That's how he thought they got chocolate milk.

I worry about people sometimes.

Agreed. 4H Clubs and FFA were big when I grew up in a rural area. Projects for both were often raising an animal and taking it to the county fair for judging. Afyerwards the animals could be sold at auction, many of the ribbon winners were purchased at prices well above market value by businesses as a means of advertisement.

Anecdotal reply to your hypothesis. I asked my six-year old this question.

Me: "Where does milk come from?"

Son: "Cows."

Me: "Where does chocolate milk come from?"

Son: "Cows?"

(uh oh)

Me: "So you think cows make chocolate milk?"

Son: "No."

Me: "So where does chocolate milk come from?"

Son: "You take milk and mix a piece of chocolate into it."


Me: "Where does chocolate come from?"

Son: "I don't know how chocolate is made."

Here in Japan we believe chocolate comes from the chinese who brought over the camels and milked them.

it's kind of like asking someone where does fried chicken come from, and when they say a chicken...
you say wrong!! it comes from a chicken, then an egg, which comes from a chicken, a cow, and then wheat... and oh ya, let's not forget about the oil, which might mean corn, or peanut, or whatever...

the chocolate is just an ingredient added to the milk to enchance it.
