The way she moos

This afternoon I was planning to share another print ad I recently spotted in a magazine (see cow print ad #1 here and cow print ad #2 here). I actually starting writing the post, but then I took a break and read a fellow blogger’s post and thought I’d highlight her post instead. Why? Because she’s got a cow image in there. With lots of cows…

Wow!

Now that you’ve met your cow quota for today, hop over to Robin’s blog and her post on “Sentences that sing”. She features a really good sentence out of her upcoming novel. And no, the sentence doesn’t mention any cows. :-)

It’s another funny, yet gross, cow birthday card

I’ve run across several cow birthday cards in the past. Some of them were cute and funny, some of them could sing happy birthday, including my own cow singing birthday card my mom sent me, and some happen to be quite gross.

Today’s featured birthday card is more of the latter kind, but I’ll let you tell me what you think. I found this cow birthday card at my local grocery store. Here’s the front of the birthday card:

 Boy, I love the pearly white teeth on that cow. I want her dentist’s contact information.

Now, here’s for the inside of the card. Did you guess what it would say?

 Cow pies for a birthday. How come I didn’t think of that? Now, who wants some pie?

Time for a little cow humor

I’ll admit it, this is sick humor. Really sick. But I’m not responsible for it, I’m just reporting it. I’m warning you, today’s cow sighting is not for the weak stomachs. Or the vegetarians. Read on at your own risk.

Today I paid a quick visit to Sears, the department store, to exchange some pants and buy new ones. Sears has the most unbelievable (but true) guarantee on kids’ clothing called Kidvantage. If your kids wear out their clothes before they grow out of them, you can exchange the ruined clothes for new ones, for free. Yes, you read this right! I don’t buy pants anywhere else than Sears now, since my kids love to make holes in the knees at least once a month. And with my youngest inheriting clothes from my oldest, I have a chance to pass on hole-free pants.

So I exchanged three pairs and also bought three new ones. On the way out, I walked through the men’s department and a stack of T-shirts caught my attention. Be ready to be amazed. Or grossed out. I present you with the sickest cow humor I’ve encountered so far this year:

Pretty bad, huh? But there’s worse, because pigs get it too. Right next to the cow T-shirts, I found this pig T-shirt.

I now dare you to eat eggs and bacon or a hamburger without thinking of these T-shirts!

Get ready for a little bovine humor

My most memorable cows (yes, cows, not cow) of the day appeared in another episode of Curious George tonight. Have you noticed we’re stuck in a Curious George trend? I’ll admit I don’t mind it so much. The episodes are actually well done for preschoolers and I like the real-life applications featuring real kids at the end of each episode.

Tonight’s Curious George’s episode featured a baby opossum and at least a dozen cows frantically running around the barn at night. I didn’t see how this mess started but the numerous moos are what made me look at the screen. When I saw the multiple cows running across the screen, I thought I was suffering from vision problems. I’m better now that the episode is over, thanks.

Rather than showing you these crazy cows, let me share a little bovine humor today. I’ve been looking at funny cow images for inspiration to start a children’s book. While doing my research, I ran into some pretty fun cow cartoons and I hope you’ll appreciate them too. Enjoy the funny cow sighting overload!

My favorite cartoon has to be Star Wars. What about you?

Today’s cow is a two-for-one

Today’s featured cows look funny and behave in an even funnier way. Their names are Minnie and Moo and they’re best friends. I found them in the second book we’ve read of the Minnie and Moo series called “Minnie and Moo and the potato from Planet X” by Denys Cazet. Read about the previous Minnie and Moo apparition on this blog.

In this book a very alien-looking potato lands in the field where Minnie and Moo are resting. The alien potato quickly enrolls the cows in a rescue mission to save the earth. Part of the mission is to fix the space tractor (the farmer’s tractor will make an adequate replacement) and to find space fuel. Now, it so happens that space fuel is cow’s milk, but only milk with a very high fat content…

Luckily, Moo is the one on the farm who makes such milk but when she’s asked to provide five gallons of it, she freezes. The other farm animals staring at her make her nervous, so her best friend Minnie asks them to go outside and sing Moo a song, just like the farmer does at milking time.

Of course, the story has a happy ending. Just when I think I’ve seen everything there is to seee about cows, I stumble upon such books as the Minnie and Moo series. Their recipe for success? Wacky stories, funny cows!
