Wow.. before I clicked I had a hunch that it would be something like:"Santa isn't delivering any presents this year because the abused reindeers left him alone". Instead I was met by one of the most stupidest things I have ever heard of. Milk produces male impotence... I'm just shocked by the sheer stupidity of it.

Santa's waaay too old to be worried about impotency!

Unless his doctor prescribed Viagra. As Gus McRae pointed out in "Lonesome Dove" -- "The older the violin, the sweeter the music."

The Rhode Island billboard owner took down a PETA ad where the Virgin Mary is holding a dead chicken and partially refunded their money after it kept being vandalized. Not a good move on PETA's part in the country's most Catholic state.

I would think that most normal vegetarians are embarrassed by PETA. My wife is a veggie and doesn't think like PETA at all.

Of all the things that can make you impotent, including all sorts of modern chemicals, I'm sure milk is WAY down the list even if there is some link.

As much as I despise PETA and don't think their claim holds water, I thought the slogan was funny (but not really appropriate for a public billboard.

I think it would have been a good viagra ad instead.

I am seriously surprised that billboard is allowed. Seems a little “blue” to me.

And on that note, it is hilarious and good advertising because it is being “talked about”. :-D

Reminds me of good time spent in Spokane.

After seeing the billboard, I had visions of Santa and Mrs. Claus getting frisky, dancing in my head - not a welcome thought.
