ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

Sirdar said...

They probably wouldn't be so funny if there wasn't a hint of truth behind some of them. :-)

Pope Benedict XVI said...

You have inspired De Pope, yes, yes.

If Im a Democrat wif two cows, & Barbra Steisand sings fer me, seems like I suddnly gots a third cow, donit?

Cissy Strutt said...

Australian:
We've got two cows. There're out the back somewhere. Help yourself & leave the money on top of the fridge. No worries.

Cissy Strutt said...

um - Australian spelling - there're = they're

Preposterous Ponderings said...

Moooooooooo!

That's cow speak for good post.

Colonel Colonel said...

Malach- I thought it was very funny when I first saw it, glad everyone enjoyed it!

Sirdar- You mean it's not true? I know at least the California one is.

De Pope- *shudder*

Joey- But if you're a Democrat you don't care.

Cissy- You can't fool me- I know how far "out back" can be in Australia...

PrePondering- I wonder what bloggers would do if they had two cows?

Mike said...

Great. I think this is a great model for industry. Way better than stupid things like Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

you REALLY did inspire the pope. you have inspired me to have a cheeseburger for lunch.

Colonel Colonel said...

Mike- I think GM already uses it.

T-Bird- Great, now I'm going to get blamed for the new Global Jihad against cows. But I am proud to have inspired such a delicious lunch choice!

Bruce, a work in progress said...

Toooo funny. And unsettlingly true. I lived in Florida when we were trying to figure out which cow was prettier. I didn't think the ballot was that hard to figure out. Unfortunately when the dust settled we didn't get a pretty cow at all. We didn't even get an ugly one. We ended up with the back end of a horse.

Phoebe Fay said...

Ah good one. And good to see the blogosphere is milking it for all its worth!

Colonel Colonel said...

Bruce- Are you even sure you got that? The back end of a horse at least produces stuff that is good for the garden.

Phoebe- yes, I have a feeling of udder accomplishment.

Sara Sue said...

This is great! Can't wait to get to the Poop's Place and read his spin-off. By the way, bloggers do have Tucows.

Kerstin said...

cow school

HA!

Colonel Colonel said...

Sara- Yes, yes, the Poop spun off into Popeville...

Kerstin- Hey, you think being a cow comes naturally?

C.Rag said...

I like big udders too. They're made for groping.

anaglyph said...

I've got one cow and I keep it tied up.

Colonel Colonel said...

C.Rag- And when it comes to groping, The Guvernator is a pro.

Reverend- That's best. There are folks out there trying to grope its udders.

AngryMan said...

Mmmm . . . cows.

Colonel Colonel said...

Angryman- oh sure, it's all fun and games until somebody loses an eye...

Thankfully, nothing was said about how a South Carolina corporation would work with cows. In some places the cows would be able to sue the rednecks for sexual harassment.

Tequila Mockingbird said...

cow sexual harrassment? ick! and i thought cow tipping was awful...

The Real Mother Hen said...

I saw Pope and Malach made a reference to this... so I checked it out. This is SOOOOO... funny :)
And I'm going to copy this shamelessly :)

Colonel Colonel said...

Beach Bum- I had a few clever rejoinders regarding rednecks, but all of them would have resulted in my inability to travel anywhere south of New Jersey...

T-Bird- Cow tipping or cow-tippling?

Mother Hen- Welcome to MMB! I'm glad you enjoyed it and feel free to copy as much as you want- I copied it from somewhere else a few years ago.
