I thought this article from 1914 might be appropriate for a Monday morning as weekends are traditionally the time for overdoing it. Monday is the day of wishing you had shown some restraint!
I expect that if these drunken cows knew what was going to happen once they ate the waste from Farmer Frank’s cider press they may well have shown some restraint too.
I wonder what they were really thinking as they lay slumped against the wall of their field? I expect that the twelfth cow especially was feeling nothing but regret.
Surely this farmer knew that a bucket of cold water just makes a drunk person angry. If he really wanted the cows to recover quickly he should have just put on a huge pot of coffee and fried them up a greasy breakfast.
Please tell me that the article I read on the Herald-Sun website this morning is true.
In udder news … officials may blow up cows | Herald Sun.
The article is about a group of cows that took refuge in a cabin in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado, during a snowstorm. Unfortunately, the cows clearly couldn’t work out how to light the fire and sadly, all perished. Now their frozen corpses are stuck inside causing an interior design dilemma for anyone else who might want to use the cabin.
Growing up on a television diet that leaned heavily towards Looney Tunes and the Muppets, to me this article is pure gold.
Two Air Force Academy cadets were the ones who discovered these unusual houseguests, and I can only imagine what they saw when they opened the door. Yeah, I know that it was probably just a herd of cows lying on the floor, but I know what I want it to have been….
The entire insides of the cabin turned into a huge iceblock, freezing the cows in a tableau of lost campers…. A couple of cows huddled around the hearth, disappointed looks on their faces and no matches in the box, one rummaging through the cupboards for scraps, another one banging on the frozen pipes with a stick (like it will help)…. you get the idea….
The thought of them planning to use explosives to fix this little problem is just the best ending I could hope for. Hopefully they use Acme brand dynamite, and get the Coyote to press the plunger. What could go wrong?
