No really. Milk is Oil according to the EPA, EPA classifies milk as oil, forcing costly rules on farmers:

Having watched the oil gushing in the Gulf of Mexico, dairy farmer Frank Konkel has a hard time seeing how spilled milk can be labeled the same kind of environmental hazard.

But the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is classifying milk as oil because it contains a percentage of animal fat, which is a non-petroleum oil.

The Hesperia farmer and others would be required to develop and implement spill prevention plans for milk storage tanks. The rules are set to take effect in November, though that date might be pushed back.

There will be no Gulf Oil Spill in dairyland. Our government is on the job.

I wish I could think up some more snark about this, so help me out.
