And Now, a Bit Less Screaming Over Ice Cream

A pesky legal action by Lady Gaga's lawyers aside, a U.K. ice creamery has one less thing to worry about now that local officials have deemed the business's product made with human breast milk safe for consumption.

After having lab tests run, local authorities recently announced they have received confirmation that the product contained no harmful bacteria or viruses. Giving the Icecreamists the green light to resume selling the controversial item, authorities said: "Our investigation into the safety of the product is now over." 

But all's not sweetness and light just yet. Saying that he is considering legal action, Icecreamists founder Matt O'Connor claims that authorities have damaged his business's reputation by saying the product could have been a health hazard before any tests were actually performed on it.

And what about that cease-and-desist letter from Lady Gaga's legal team? In a nod to that dispute, O'Connor writes on his blog, "Whilst we still have to deal with Miss Germanotta, its probably time for us to say thanks for the mammaries and get back to our mission; liberating the world one lick at a time with lashings of great boutique ice cream, crazy cocktails and some very bad puns."
