OT: Don't Have A Cow

This is udderly off-topic, but I had fun this afternoon at my bike shop when I helped herd a cow out of the parking lot and back into the neighboring pasture:

No sooner did Jeff go back inside than the bovine returned. I guess the grass is always greener...... When the cow saw me and I called it hamburger, it ran back through the broken fence.

And when I went back inside the cow returned yet again. It just wouldn't mooove. So Jeff returned with a big pole....

And chased the cow at me. "Fat lotta good that did!" I shouted. I yelled "steak" at the cow, and Jeff herded it back to the broken fence.

Cow back in the pasture, the guy who built my bikes rebuilds the fence.

Oh the pleasures of living in the country......

This must be true.

I used to herd children for a living, now I herd adults. Been thinking of taking a cat herding course...
