Pump those crazy delicious legs!

GREAT FALLS, Mont. - A cow that escaped a slaughterhouse dodged vehicles, ran in front of a train, braved the icy Missouri River and took three tranquilizer darts before being recaptured six hours later. News of the heifer's adventures prompted a number of people to offer to buy the animal.

I loved reading about this cow's daring hijinks.

Reminds of a time when I was driving to work when I was still in college in NC. My drive took me a past a small farm and that day somehow the cows had gotten out and were causing havok. Cows were everywhere, azaleas being eaten, the cornfield getting smashed, and I think I saw some smoking and spraying graffitti on the barn. One cow near the side of the road kept turning his head up and mooing louder than I'd ever heard a cow moo. MOOOO! MOOOO! MOOOO!

I rolled down the window and yelled "Rock on cow brother! ROCK ON! MOOO!!"

I'm not sure why I did that, but it felt good. Perhaps it's the result of all that childhood exposure to The Far Side.
