That ending was a lot of bull.

The Vicar of VHS said...

Once there was a man who dreamed he was a cow...and the dream was so real, he thought he truly was a cow, and that his previous life had been the dream...and when he awakened into the world of man, he wept for his lost cowhood. And ever after, for the rest of his life, he never could be sure whether he was a man who dreamt he was a cow, or a cow dreaming that he was a man. Here endeth the lesson.

...

Hey, all cows are Buddhist, right? Or was it Hindu. Anyway, I found the story moooving.

Of course this terror tale was cheesy, but at least it was butter than some. In fact, it curdled my blood! The only beef I have is with the udderly ridiculous premise.

I could go on, but I don't want to milk this anymore...

Oh, I forgot to say that the splash page is great, but the last panel on the next to last page is definitely the cream of the crop.

Whattaya call a cow with no legs?
Ground beef!

Whattaya call a cow that jumps a barbed wire fence?
An udder disaster!

Whattaya call a cow that has an abortion?
De-calf-enated!

Take my wife. Please!

Thank you Jeff and The Vicar... that's right folks, if you love cow humor then you came to right place. And just a reminder, they'll be performing here all week so tell your mom, tell your pop.

And don't forget to tip your waitress.
