What Percent Is Whole Milk?

Skim milk is for pussies. Everyone can agree on that. No fat in your milk? What are you, Haitian? 1% is for old people and people trying to lose weight but are stupid because how the fuck will drinking low-fat milk help with that? Maybe try jogging idk. 2% is my bread and butter. Big fan of the reduced fat. But what percent is whole milk? Is it 100%? Can’t be, that’s too much of a drastic leap. 3%? Nah, it’s too thick to be 3%. 5% maybe? Possibly 10%? Then why the friggin heck is it called whole milk?

EDIT: turns out it’s 3.5% says google. Kinda dumb.

That was pretty much all I had to say in this blog. Milk confuses me. But my word count has to be under 100 and that’s just unacceptable journalism so I will write more things about milk. Let me research…
