Austrians told to stop kissing cows

Hmmmm....it is noteworthy that implied consent doesn't appear to be an issue in Europe.

You wouldn't have to tell me not to kiss cows. I kinda take it for granted.

That's because you live by the old code. One of the reasons I would feel rock assured in your company.

We raised cows when I was young. At that point, I was much smaller. Apparently, when a young bull starts to grow horns, they itch like crazy. So one of the bulls decided to scratch his horns on my chest. The worst part was that he had me pushed up against the barbed wire fence at the time.

No, I have no desire to get up close and personal with a cow. They are big, dirty, stupid, etc. Their only redeeming quality is when they are on the grill.

A bull is not a cow. Was it a bull who self identifies as a cow?

Common sense should tell you not to kiss a goat.

Hovannes, you are correct. Technically a bull is not a cow. But they both are in the category of bovine horribleness. We raised cows, as a collective description, until we had finished eating their predecessor. This always happened before bull/cow dispute became relevant.

More relevant to the social norms of the day, are there bulls who self identify as cows? Or cows who self identify as bulls? And if there are, does that Bovine identity take precedence over Biology? :confused:

Maybe I would. It would depend on the cow.

Cavalry Sgt.: How do I know this is your horse?

Paden: Can't you see this horse loves me?

Cavalry Sgt.: I had a gal do that to me. It didn't make her my wife.

I’m afraid I would pick an ugly cow and people would laugh.
