“Cows look calm, but really they are gay nymphomaniacs"

...is the quote of the day, from The Secret Life of Moody Cows, in the Times Online, via AL Daily.


"You know, once you go black angus..."

From the article:

ONCE they were a byword for mindless docility. But cows have a secret mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture friendships and become excited over intellectual challenges, scientists have found.

Cows are also capable of feeling strong emotions such as pain, fear and even anxiety — they worry about the future. But if farmers provide the right conditions, they can also feel great happiness.

...Dairy cow herds can also be intensely sexual. Webster describes how the cows become excited when one of the herd comes into heat and start trying to mount her. “Cows look calm, but really they are gay nymphomaniacs,” he said.

This is utter nonsense. Every self-respecting bovine that I know would not be able to stomach/stomach this. Lots of times I have come upon cow villages where they're all setting around chewing cud and dicussing ways to get people to buy more chicken. Sexually though usually cows/bulls don't see eye to eye.

Haha, "udder" nonsense, got it. But I don't know. Research seems to show that cows like their taters served up with beef.
