Mother Nature Declares War On Depraved Cows

by | 25th, October 2008

DEATH to the cows. Especially the ones you can’t see . The Swiss are making preparations for cow-free world, as must be.

In Valdez Chico, near Montevideo, Uruguay, 52 cows lay dead, felled by a lightning bolt sent from Mother Nature.

Hurrah!

The Telegraph says the odds of being killed by lightning are slimmer than winning the top prize on Deal Or No Deal but more generous than you being selected by Prince Wozamatabili of Nigeria as a safe haven for $456bn in used bank notes.

Multiply by 52. This is God’s will.

The odds of being struck by lightning are approximately 1 in 576,000 and the chance of actually being killed by lightning is about 1 in 2,320,000.

But some cows will take risks:

“…experts say working or playing in open fields; boating, fishing, and swimming; working on heavy farm or road equipment; playing golf; taking a shower; talking on a conventional telephone; and repairing or using electrical appliances are all activities that should be avoided during storms.”

But cows will be cows.

And the Jakarta Post repots of a cow making its way out to sea in a beautiful pea green boat.
