• What Should We Call the Milk Cliff?

    Unless Congress reauthorizes the current milk price support program that expires on December 31st, a 1949 dairy price support law will go into effect, sharply raising prices for consumers while guaranteeing a financial windfall for dairy interests.

    Much like the fiscal cliff, keeping the old law on the books was meant to goad Congress into passing a new farm bill, but if congressional incompetence remains more powerful than the dairy trigger, prices could rise to $6 or $8 per gallon. You can call it the milk cliff, or see what else the Internet hive-mind has come up with:

    1. The Dairy Cliff

    2. Udder Disaster (h/t Todd Zwillich)

    3. The Big Spoil (h/t Benjy Sarlin)

    4. The Lactose Ledge

    5. Armagoudan (h/t @nklopfen)

    6. Revenge of the 2%

    7. The Lactopalypse

    8. Jumping off the Bovine Bridge

    Feel free to come up with your own if you think these aren't the crème de la crème (okay, we'll stop now.)
