What the shit China? We give you capitalism and you give us adults drinking breast milk like kids from a water fountain. There are two ways to drink the breast milk. One is with a pre-packaged bottle. And the other, more popular way is to suckle the milk directly from the breast.

Via India Times: Rich adults in south China's Shenzhen city hiring wet nurses to drink breast milk has provoked disgust and outrage over the Chinese internet with thousands of micro blog users lashing out at this "latest game" of people who came to wealth overnight. The wet nurses are provided by an agency, which scouts for poor women who have recently given birth and would be happy with some financial support. The new mothers offer their services for a few days to weeks in a month with prices varying from $2,000 to $4,000.

"Adults (clients) can drink it directly through breastfeeding, or they can always drink it from a breast pump if they feel embarrassed," Lin Jun, owner of a wet nurse supplying agency, Xinxinyu, was quoted in the local media as saying.

Some Chinese believe that human breast milk has some special nutritional qualities that are good for health, particularly for those who have undergone surgeries. Many Chinese web users are saying it is not just unethical but also shows the arrogance and neglect of women by the country's wealthy.

The first dude that convinced his wife to let him suck a breast that wasn't his wife's because it's, "healthier" to drink breast milk than milk from cows, deserves a serious, "How the fuck did he pull that off?" award. We could get use to the idea of hiring a couple of nurses or "suckling stations" throughout the Rooster office. It's going to be a sticky couple of months when the Chinese figure out how they can naturally drink protein as well.
