If it WAS a troll, he was probably expecting that you would put it on the Bonsai Kittens page. Those "You've Got Mail" sections are food for trolls' thoughts!

Comment: Did you ever wonder.....

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

Actually, this one has an answer. It's a song about a murder. Jimmy's
cracked corn was dried, and if you've ever held a dried corn you'll know
it's darn hard. If it's cracked in two, it'll have a pointy end.

Jimmy was a slave. What Jimmy did was put the corn-bit under his master's
saddle. After beng ridden a bit, the pointy end worked its way into the
horse's skin. The horse then bucked, and the master was thrown off and
died. In the commotion, the piece of corn fell out and was lost.

Like so many songs, nursery rhymes, and seemingly innocent stories, this
one has a hidden meaning.

Someone mentioned that snopes only puts emails here that he has verified to be from members. How does he know that they're trolls? I'm just wondering, I don't want to use the knowledge in any evil powers or to build up a mass army.

I saw that documentary. It was a very funny parody.

Comment: Hello,

Back in the early 80's my dad was on a business trip to Hawaii and while
there him and another co worker swear that they drove past a field that
had cows grazing, but these cows had holes through them large enough to
see through from the road.

I asked him again about it recently and he still swears that it is true
and he did not make it up. After doing as much research as I can think to
do I can up with nothing about any such thing.

Any insight there?

No, no- you have it all wrong! Avian is the water that uses bird feathers and gizzards in their filtering process.

Well, he was close except for the fact that it's 'Evian' and not 'Avian,' they were talking about wine rather than water, they banned the use of cow's blood several years ago, and the labels would be bright orange rather than marked with red circles:

quote:
The Post said the speaker also is exploring whether the United States should require "bright orange warning labels" on French wines that are clarified with bovine blood. Two U.S. wine experts contacted by the newspaper said a few French wine growers used bovine blood as a clarifier before the process was banned in the late 1990s after the "made cow disease" scare

Actually, this is partially true. Most of you will not believe this (I barely do myself), but it's possible to cut a hole in a cow's side, large enough for you to reach your hand inside and feel the stomach contents in the abomasum (The "true stomach" of a ruminant). I'm taking an animal nutrition class for my zookeeping degree, and our prof was telling us that, while not common, it's done for nutritional and vet research. Sometimes the cows are shown at state fairs and such for people to touch. He passed around pictures and damned if the cow didn't have a hole in its side. It blew my mind. I've never seen one in person, but from looking at the pictures, the hole is only fist-sized. I have no idea how the farmers and vets keep dirt from getting inside - he didn't mention it and it never occured to me to ask. I was too freaked out by the thought of it. University of Florida has a bovine teaching unit at their vet school, so anyone who's curious might want to ask more about it there.

Probably the only thing you would get is frozen gum that tastes both like mint and orange. It would probably tasted disgusting and it would be very unlikely you would get a high off of it.

Why don't you just go out and get some magic mushrooms? I have some growing in my backyard. [Wink]

I have seen one of these cows in person. At UC Davis, they had one on "display" to show all the grade school kids that came in to learn about cows and other animals.

Of course, this was also the same trip where we saw a cow being milked. One of my fellow girls scouts, upon seeing this said "That's were milk comes from? Ewww! I'll never drink milk again." [Roll Eyes]

Where did she think it came from? The dairy fairy?

I, too, have heard of the peculiar practice Cervus described. I think I even remember seeing a photo in the newspaper of a group of school kids, on a field trip, taking turns reaching into one of these cows. The cow didn't look bothered at all (yes, we are talking about a live cow, in case that wasn't clear!) and I could not tell how they kept the thing clean. Maybe they install something like the gas cap on automobiles . . .

(Jeez, I finally have a use for that stupid cow smiley and now it's gone!)

I remember seeing one of these cows on the local University farm when I was a kid. Yes, there'sa plug that fits into the rubber ring keeping the hole open.

I figured the farmers discovered that they could cut steaks from the cow and still get milk.

As if eating fungus grown on cow manure (hell, fungus grown anywhere...) couldn't possibly kill a person. Just keep sniffing the glue. That's a lot safer. Right. Mmm-hmm.
