People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has revived its anti-milk "Got Beer?" campaign, with advertisements targeting students at the University of Florida, Florida State University and other campuses Thursday urging students to abandon dairy in favor of the brewery. The quarter-page ad features a silhouette of a beer bottle and reads: "Got . . . beer?! Better than milk, find out more at MilkSucks.com." "College students care about cruelty to animals, and they need to know, if they're consuming dairy products, they're promoting animal abuse and harming their own health," said Bruce Friedrich, director of vegan outreach for the Norfolk, Va.-based organization. In addition to the Florida universities, the campaign also targets schools identified by Princeton Review as the nation's top party schools. In addition to Florida and FSU, the list includes Penn State, Indiana, Colorado, Alabama, Buffalo, Clemson, New Hampshire and Wisconsin. PETA also planned to run the ad at the University of Pennsylvania and at five schools Princeton Review identified as "stone-cold sober": Brigham Young, Wheaton College and the Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard academies. The Daily Universe at Brigham Young and The Daily Pennsylvanian at Penn have refused to run the ad. PETA first came up with the slogan -- a spoof of the popular "Got Milk?" campaign -- two years ago, but it was retired after being criticized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving and other groups. Lisa Ritchie, a registered dietitian and assistant professor of family and consumer sciences at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., said it was ridiculous to claim that drinking beer is healthier than drinking milk. "I think, really, it is a stretch to say that beer is going to be better, that you can't drink milk responsibly," Ritchie said. "Beer is an empty-calorie food where you get about 130 calories in a can. It's not a real nutrient-packed substance, where milk, in an 8-ounce serving, you get an awful lot of nutrients." Mothers Against Drunk Driving has renewed its criticism of the campaign, calling the ad irresponsible. Wendy Hamilton, president of MADD, cited recent studies about binge drinking on campus and called the ad irresponsible. "It's absolutely ridiculous . . . it's an irresponsible, recycled publicity stunt that literally puts cows before kids. It's appalling," she said.
