...Then There Also Must Be Whale Cheese!

Hey, anybody here ever have Whale Milk? I mean, Whales are mammals, and nurse their young, so they have to have milk, right?

Actually, I know the answer to that one. According to the Official Whale Homepage:

The mother whale feeds her calf with milk. Whale milk is very rich and fatty. In fact, whale milk can contain up to 50% of fat. By comparison, whole cow milk has a fat content of about 3.25% and human milk roughly 4%.
So actually, the title of this post is pretty much correct: Whale Milk IS Whale Cheese.

And yes, I did read the canister of milk at the local coffee shop incorrectly this morning.
