he, asll this years i`ve been drinking 1/2 a gallon of homo a day and i didn`t even know.
??? Because you think it`s gay? I think yer mommy and daddy need to slap you some more. Makes you smarter, ya know.
"Hey Jack, I have an idea that can make our brand huge!"
"Whats that Bill? We`ve tried everything, and we still fall behind store brands."
"Well, have you heard that statistic that 10% of people are gay?"
"Uh yeah, where are you going with this?"
"Well, lets have a play on the word homogenization, and say that our milk tastes like homo, it will become the hot item in the gay community!"
"You`re retarded. Petty appeasement will more likely piss them off, it will bring the fundies against us, and on top of that-"
"I`m your boss. We`re doing it."
"Why even have a marketing department if you refuse to listen to it."
"Good point, you`re fired."
"But I have 4 kids, and my wife has cancer."
"Drink some milk, I hear that can cheer you up."
You`d sure get a lot of free advertising that way.
To be accurate, it *is* homogenised, i.e. it`s the same consistency throughout. It`s just that `homogenised milk` has come to mean `full fat milk` in some places, despite having a completely different meaning. So what they really mean is that this is skimmed milk that they claim tastes like full-fat milk. Although it won`t.
No, it`s a misleading shortening of a word. `homo` does indeed mean `human` (e.g. homo sapiens), but in this case it`s a shortening of a compound word in which one root is `homos`, meaning `same`, rather than `homo`. It refers to milk of the same consistency throughout. If milk is just left alone, it will be thicker towards the top.
`homos` is usually shortened to `homo` in English compound words using it as a root, simply to smooth out pronunciation. So, for example, `homonym` instead of `homosnym` or `homosexual` instead of `homossexual`.
Ah screw it guy`s let`s just write Homo. They`ll know what we mean."
I think the meeting went something like that.
True, but the `homo` prefix usually comes from the Greek `homos`, meaning `same`. It is in this case - homogeneous means `same kind`. In milk, it refers to milk of the same consistency, i.e. not having thicker, creamier milk towards the top.
So you have partially skimmed milk that tastes like homogenized milk. Why is that weird?
