I've always heard the term "blue john" in reference to skim milk myself;
that's from someone who grew up in the idyllic NC mountains. I always
thought that it was because the milk sans fat did actually take on a
slightly blue color, but that, of course, could simply have come from
association with the term blue john.
As for blinky, the first time I heard it was just a few years ago from a
friend who grew up in Texas.
