Hey, everybody! I need some contestants for the Cow Challenge that I sent out on Monday! It’s going over like a lead balloon. I was talking to Lefty (my left-handed, left-brained husband) about it last night.
“So I’ve got this cow challenge on my blog. I’ve asked people to name as many cattle breeds as they can, on-the-fly, without looking it up on the ‘net. But I’m getting zero comments!”
He said, “Um, I don’t think most people really care about cow breeds.”
“What?! Not care about cows?”
“Well,” he reasoned, “Take sheep, for example. How many sheep breeds can you name?”
“Hm. I don’t know. White sheep? Black sheep…?”
“So there you go.”
“Can you name any cattle breeds?” I challenged.
He thought for a minute. “Filet mignon, steak, shepherd’s pie….”
Okay, so the guy has a point. But I’m still issuing the challenge. How many cattle breeds can you list?
