“What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?” (joke)

"What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?” is a popular food joke. The Spanish word “soy” means “I am,” although the word “milk” is “leche” in Spanish.

Conan O’Brien‘s late night television talk show included the comedy sketch “In the Year 2000” on October 18, 2000, and one person predicted:

“A college student will take his first puff of marijuana, and will realize that ‘soy milk’ in Spanish means ‘I am milk.’ He will laugh...for 6 solid hours.”

Comedy Central made this into a Sarah Palin joke on November 7, 2008:

“Sarah Palin is so dumb, she thinks soy milk means ‘I am milk.’”

“What if soy milk is just regular milk introducing itself in Spanish?” was cited on Twitter on September 10, 2013.

Just have ta mention… Soy Milk does not mean ‘I Am Milk’ in Spanish. ‘Milk’ means nothing in Spanish. Milk is “leche”.
