How many eyes does a cow need to sell coffee?

Living in San Diego means we’re lucky enough to call home a city where people from around the world come to spend some precious vacation time. There’s so much to do and visit around town, I can honestly say we can’t be bored. But living in such a popular city also means we have to share it with tourists at every holiday, during Spring Break and the whole summer.

So this morning we decided to head down to San Diego’s Balboa Park before the summer crowds join in by next month. We visited a few attractions we’ve never been to before, such as the Balboa Park miniature train ride, and the carousel. That’s where I found… No, not a cow. There wasn’t a single bovine on the merry-go-round. Apparently cows are not popular animals on carousels – my previous carousel encounter reached the same conclusion. But I did find this animal:

Is this a pig? With cow spots? Hmm, would you call this a pig cow, or a cow pig? Oh, wait, I’ve seen this before, right in my kitchen. It’s called the Fisher-Price magnet animal farm!

After our exciting train and carousel rides, we strolled around the park some more. Right by the Prado restaurant, we caught sight of this sign for Daniel’s Coffee Bean shop. This cow is my first discovery of its kind – it’s a cyclop cow!

This sign provides one more clue about cows. On top of promoting the sale of milk, creamer, wine and beer, cows can also help to sell coffee! So if you want to sell a lot of coffee, forget about using  clipart of a steaming coffee cup, coffee beans, or even  a green silly-looking mermaid. Go for the kill and use a cow!

  1. Wow! A one-eyed cow and a cow pig….a cow pig with what appears to be horse’s legs and hooves! LOL
    You have me curious now with the idea that there are no cows possibly on carousels….the next time I see a carousel I MUST keep my eyes open and see if I can find one or not!
