Comments: Paranoid....

That's a herd of cows that's been fed off the back of a slow-moving pickup truck as it putters through the pasture. Probably a truck where the teenage kid tunes his daddy's radio to the rock & roll station while he's doing it.

They associate the music and the engine noise to feedin' time. Next time pop the trunk and toss 'em a hay bale.

Avoid watching South Park for a couple of weeks.

Possums? Persimmons? Possums eating persimmons?

Son, stick to corn dogs and snakes. This shit's gettin' skeery...

Damn, man...all the good shit happens where you live. What do I get? Chased down on subway platforms by rats and waterbugs so huge you can see the "I love mom" tattoos on their 'ceps.

There's an AUDI commercial in there somewhere... The video will be much like yours, but it'll be Meatloaf beltin' out heifers by the dashboard light.

Then again, maybe that's how the aliens get 'em for that cattle mutilation crap... You know they just pull up their spaceship 'side the road, and whip out a ham sammmich... and pipe some Piano Man over the PA system.

Shoulda fed them the sandwich... bovine carnivores. That'd be cool. Just don't lean over the fence too far.

Heheheh... you shoulda let them check out the chocolate milk, too. See what they think...

They were all heifers -- think of them as akin to teenagers -- all hormones, no brains.

Oooh! Look at the pretty car! Let's go look at the car!

Not much different than the press at the Detroit Auto Show, come to think of it...

cows don't normally behave that way. They are timid and docile.

Zombie cows, however, will try to rush you.

I think they were just checking out the sandwich to be sure it wasn't beef...

Eric,
You crack me up. Entertaining the livestock with Billy Joel.

You should come up to Indiana. It would be interesting to see this old farm through your eyes.

That is just perverted and dirty, to be sampling one's own secretions. Yeeefers.

I saw the look in the eyes of that one old cow..she was trying to tell you to "TURN THAT SHIT OFF!"

EVERYONE likes a ham samich, maybe the cows wanted a bite? This way you know the cows were not an Islamic sleeper cell, hiding in the Tennesee hinterlands.

Dude, face it. You're just that hot... ;-)

Things may not have been so serene if they had suspected that you were munching on a roast beef sandwich instead of ham:0)

Posted by DanToom on March 21, 2007 12:27 PM

Um, they were checking out the car dude...does it have leather seats?

I've seen this sort of thing happen a couple of times. Once in the middle of nowhere in California, I saw guy changing his tire by the side of the road. At the edge of the road, a group of cows had come up to watch as though it was the most exciting thing they'd seen all day. It was very cute.

Another time, in Oregon on a cold and foggy day,I was driving by a rolling pasture where a huge bonfire had been built to clear some brush. There was a group of cows standing around, staring at the fire just like people might gather around a bonfire. That was just the most amazing scene....especially in the fog and all. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera.

Damn, so that's what cows look like.

You had me at cow...

You had me at cow...

Ok. I had a moment, as an avid cow fan, I must say, I throughly enjoyed this post, and the lovely cow video that came along with it-- (this coming from a woman who has 30 stuffed cows in the backseat of her car, one of which being a 3 foot Chick-fil-a Cow ;0)

It was the chocolate milk. They couldn't believe you were drinking chocolate milk.
All they wanted to know was, where do you find chocolate cows.

Just found your blog while I was googling a town in TX. What a hoot those cows are. They remind me of the commerial for "Happy California Cows"
