“A man just assaulted me with milk, cream and butter. How dairy”

"A man just assaulted me with milk, cream and butter. How dairy” (a pun on “dare he") is a jocular line that appears to have started in the United Kingdom in 2010. “I walked into Tesco and this bloke threw milk, butter and cream at me. How dairy!” was cited on Twitter on October 25, 2010. “A bloke has just hurled a block of cheese, some cream and a pint of milk at my head.  How dairy...” was cited on Twitter on November 4, 2010.

Mother Goose was amazing and funny! We liked Muddles because he is very silly and Gertie Gaga tells all the funny good jokes. One of the jokes was: when I was at the shop I got milk, cheese and butter chucked at me. I thought: “How dairy!” Hahaha. When we did a dance at the end, it went a little bit like this and a little bit like that and shake your bum. It was a great show.

btw, i used the term weapon as it turned the title into a double entendre, however this seemed to have fallen flat, I wont try to be funny in future. In fact, I went into the Co-op this evening and told a joke or 2 - one bloke didnt like it much and started throwing eggs, cream and milk at me - I thought how dairy!
