So here's the thing I live about a mile from a dairy farm, usually I wouldn't be able to hear the cows but since I moved out further back on our property I started hearing the occasional moo. For a few months I thought nothing of it. After a while I noticed that the mooing always was around the same time of day and even at night. I thought that is was a bit odd and the cows should have been taken inside for the night during the winter. It wasn't until I was working in the garage that I heard a particularly loud moo as if the cow was right outside the building after looking around I realized what was going on.... to my amazement the sounds were coming from inside the garage! I went to investigate amongst the storage bins and sure enough there was a cow. A plastic fisher price cow. I guess someone had left it in storage with the batteries still in it; its been slowly dying for months but I still hear the occasional moo. The fact that a children's toy can sound so real being muffled through a few bins and walls is crazy, It really sounded like it was a cow off in the distance. I had a good laugh. So if you have a issue with phantom mooing just remember to check the batteries.
Description: Ted brings this case against his father Paul, who has become obsessed with cows. Ted argues that his father’s cow collection and his inclination to randomly say the word cow, among other issues, indicate the need to tamp down the cow-talk. Paul argues that his obsession is merited, because “cows are our most important animal friends.”
This is all just my opinion based on a flawed memory
I'd appreciate it if you pronounced my name correctly. Pinhead, with a silent "H". Petite ad:
