You Got to Be Kidding Me!

Don’t Have a Cow, Man…

Posted in Environment, Friends, Going Green, Silly/Funny by Stacy McMahon on August 20, 2008

I’m going to [try to] start a new category for easy and/or cost-effective and sensible ways to “go green” at home. Eventually, whenever I get it done, I’ll post about my rain-gutter irrigation system. For now, though, I can’t imagine a better way to start off than with miniature cows (link via Andrew Sullivan). They give a gallon of milk a day and mow the lawn for you! And unlike the goats Vicky‘s family once owned, they do all this without eating half the rest of the town, your fingernails, and head-butting holes in the walls.

Seriously though, I’m going to be carefully checking the HOA bylaws…

    What surprises me most are the naysayers commenting on the original TimesOnline article. Whining about such cliches as cruelty to animals. Starve ’em for awhile and see if they think the same thing. πŸ™‚

    Yeah, they mow the lawn, but don’t forget, they also fertilize it. πŸ˜‰ And take it from a guy who put up with the smell of cow manure in the summer for 20-some years, you don’t want any part of that, hehe.
