This is quite possibly the funniest news story I have heard all year. A couple were driving down the highway when their minivan was struck by a falling object. They were unhurt but were apparently a mere matter of inches away from instant death. What was the falling object in question? A 600-pound cow.
Unfortunately the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, was not as lucky as the Eversons and had to be euthanised. Always being one to look on the bright side of things though, I wondered if perhaps they had a couple of hamburgers to celebrate. What a great first wedding anniversary story to tell the grandkids too.
I’m a bit worried about the part where the husband claimed he didn’t see the cow falling. Maybe this is just me but if a 600 pound Frieisen decides to go bungee jumping without a rope and smashes straight onto my car bonnet (that’s what we Brits call the hood. Yeah, I know, funny word isn’t it?) I’m going to notice.
Last Saturday my area had Diwali celebrations in preparation for the Hindu festival which is actually this Friday. Given that the cow is a holy symbol in the Hindu religion (yeah, I’ve always found that one a bit odd myself) I wonder how this news may be greeted in India. If you thought the reaction to Danish cartoons was bad you haven’t seen billions of underweight Indians try and hold a riot. They need to eat more cow.
