- Cows really do give more milk when they listen to music in the milking
parlour. Ask your government for a grant to study the effect of
milk production. Then make your fortune by inventing an iPod for cows so
they can listen to music as they graze!
- In the Indian language, the literal translation of the Sanskrit word for
'War' is, 'we want more cows'
- It would take a huge herd of around 2,500 cows to supply the 20,000 Wilson
footballs that the NFL needs for each season's games. However, no cows die
when the English soccer season kicks off. The reason is that soccer
footballs are made from synthetic materials.
- Bamboozle the innumerate. Tell them that it takes 20 pints of milk to
make one pint of butter. Then ask them how many gallons of milk would it
take to make a gallon of butter? (Naturally, the answer is 20 gallons.)
The RSPCA was called to rescue the heifer called 'Spinner' from a field
at Higher Fraddon, St Columb, Cornwall, England. The cow had to be freed
after getting her head stuck in a fly-tipped washing machine drum.
The lucky cow escaped injury after her ordeal; but the animal charity
warned today that fly tipping can cause animals harm. 'It is one of the more
unusual things we had had to rescue an animal from,' said RSPCA spokeswoman
Jo Barr. 'Young cows are quite curious, and she probably thought there was
some food inside the drum,' she added.
A member of the public spotted the frustrated 'Spinner' trying to free
herself from the metal drum. RSPCA inspector David Hobbs rescued the heifer,
and she has since returned to her herd unharmed.
Lesson: Keep your nose out of things that do not concern you.
Will and Guy hope that 'Spinner' has found the 'Energy Saving Setting'.
