    Aug. 20 (UPI) -- An Iowa family's 5-year-old bovine has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records as the world's shortest bull, standing at only 26.6 inches high. Heikens Ark Jupiter, aka Humphrey, was purchased by the Gardner family of Kelona in May 2017, and it was only after buying him that they discovered he wasn't a calf, he was a fully-grown 3-year-old miniature zebu bull. "It's hard for people to believe there are animals so small who are full-sized," owner Shelly Gardner said. "Most people, when they think of a bull, think of a large animal and he is...
  • #MeToo Cow insemination is rape, milking is sexual assault says researcher

    A research paper currently being pushed by a researcher at the College of Brockport Gender Studies program wants society — feminists — to talk about the unseemly “sexual exploitation” of dairy cows in order to “fully fight gendered oppression.” The author claims the dairy industry is rife with ‘sex-based discrimination’ (of cows), and compares insemination of the cattle to “rape.” The milking of cows is, of course, “sexual assault.” This isn’t satire, so be careful, if you start buying into this, you too could be assimilated. According to Campus Reform: A paper currently being promoted by a New York University...

    SNOGGING cows – “with or without tongues” – is all the rage in Austria, endangering the animals and those smooching them, warn officials. The disturbing trend has been promoted by Swiss app Castl, which launched its bizarre Cow Kiss Challenge to raise money for charity. But the practice has been slammed, with politicians and farming officials saying that it's creating a nuisance and could lead to people getting trampled to death by upset cows, particularly those with calves. Castl has been encouraging people in Switzerland, Germany and Austria to kiss cows for a good cause since launching its “KuhKussChallenge” on...

    I live next door to a social justice warrior. You know the type. Always offended. Always angry about something. Yesterday I was sitting on my front porch when she rode past me on her bicycle. "Cow!" I yelled. She scowled and gave me the finger. Then she ran straight into a cow. Goodness knows I tried to warn her.

    ‘Wax My Ass, Scrub My Balls’ --- This Beto O’Rourke Poem Is Beyond Belief Beto O’Rourke’s recently unearthed membership in the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow” may not have included the “edgiest sorts of hacking activity,” but it did, apparently, include writing murder fantasies and exceptionally bad poetry. Writing under the now-exposed pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” a teen-aged O’Rourke appears to be the author of a poem titled “The Song of the Cow,” published in 1988 by “cDc (Cult of the Dead Cow) communications.” “I need a butt-shine,” the poem begins … and it really all just goes downhill...

    When Ryan Strasser, then an associate at Hogan Lovells in Washington, D.C., got down on one knee and asked Sarah Jones Dickens to marry him, he knew one thing: She’d like the ring. It was 4.06 carats, a near-colorless, old European cut brilliant diamond, mounted in platinum with 14 diamond accents. And it fit what he says were her must-have requirements: 3.5 to 5 carats with an inclusion rating of no “worse” than VS2 and a color rating of no “worse” than G, and with no fluorescence. The price? $100,000. And then, 11 months later…they broke up. According to Strasser,...

    A MUTANT cow has been born with two heads, baffling local farmers. Video footage shows the farm animal being bottle-fed by local workers as a second identical face emerges next to the first. The calf shares two pairs of eyes and heads between one skull and was found in Brazilian town Caiponia by the farm owner's wife. The woman, Zica Soares, said: "I never imagined something like that would be born here, we are surprised. "The vet says that we need to either put the calf down or look after him until the end. "He is very bad, really weak,...

    If we had an actual, physical folder of evidence that the food labeling system in the United States is broken, it'd be full to bursting. And we'd be adding "skim milk????" to the list right about now. Maryland dairy farmers Randy and Karen Sowers are, with the help of the Institute for Justice (a non-profit libertarian-leaning law firm), suing the Food and Drug Administration for essentially doubling down on a very silly law. The gist: South Mountain Creamery, the dairy producer owned by the Sowerses, want to sell milk without the addition of any synthetic chemicals. To do this, they...

    Scientists at San Francisco-based biotech start-up Muufri -- (get it, moo free?) -- have developed a formula to re-create cow milk: six proteins for structure and function and eight fatty acids for flavor and richness, according to Muufri’s website. The milk product is also free of lactose and cholesterol and because it’s created in a lab, its seen as a sustainable alternative to traditional dairy cattle operations. According to Muufri, lactose is “partially indigestible by 75 percent of adults,” so the decision to leave it out creates a healthier product. Founders of Muufri, Ryan Pandya, Perumal Gandhi and Isha Datar,...

    A runaway cow that avoided captivity for weeks died Thursday after it was caught and put on a truck to be taken to a farm, a local official said. The red Limousin beef cow fled Jan. 23 as it was to be transported to a slaughterhouse. It gained celebrity status as it defended its life and freedom, tricking searchers, swimming from island to island and roaming a lake-filled region near Nysa, in southwestern Poland.

    COMMANDMENT I: If You Choose To Carry, Always Carry As Much As Possible Hollywood actors get to see the script beforehand, and nothing is fired at them but blanks. You don’t have either luxury. Criminals attack people in times and places where they don’t think the victims will be prepared for them. It’s what they do. The only way to be prepared to ward off such predators is to always be prepared: i.e., to be routinely armed and constantly ready to respond to deadly threats against you and those who count on you for protection. It’s not about convenience; it’s...

    A new New Jersey ice cream shop called “Dairy Air” has shocked locals with its sexy cartoon cow logo — a bawdy beret-wearing bovine flaunting her curvy, branded derriere that one resident slammed as “offensive and sickening.” “This kind of marketing scheme is the reason we currently have a sexual predator in the White House,” Tingle continued, pleading in the note for the ice cream parlor to “reconsider” the logo design.

    Since leaving the White House in January, Michelle Obama has stayed relatively quiet and deprived us of her almost daily power-dressing inspiration. However, the former FLOTUS stepped out in N.Y.C. on Thursday in a vibrant summer sundress that we’re seriously hoping to copy for our next warm-weather event. For a day out in Manhattan, Obama chose a knee-length frock with vertical stripes of shades of blue and green that elongated her frame. She paired the vibrant dress with cat-eye sunglasses, hoop earrings, and nude pointy-toe pumps, keeping her accessories minimal to let her dress take center stage. ADVERTISING Michelle Obama...

    Michelle Obama went as low-key as Melania Trump had gone high-style, choosing to deliver her convention speech in a cobalt-blue silk crepe A-line dress with cap sleeves. The dress, custom-made by New York-based designer Christian Siriano, who shot to fame after winning the fourth season of “Project Runway” in 2008, fell to just below the knee and was paired with a pair of metallic heels that industry trade publication Footwear News identifies as Jimmy Choo pumps.
  • There’s no Trump without Palin: Meghan McCain scolds conservatives for backing Trump

    05/06/2016 11:35:22 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 125 replies
    Donald Trump’s coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if you’re a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But that’s the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    A small-town Alabama high school cheerleading coach was arrested on Tuesday on charges that she had a sexual relationship with a male student. The teacher is Katherine Nelson, reports The Birmingham News. Nelson, 29, is an English teacher at Brookwood High School in Brookwood, Ala. (pop: 1,828), just east of Tuscaloosa. She also coaches cheerleading and golf, and directs musical theater. The charge against the married teacher is engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19 (while also a school employee). Investigators say the sex occurred back during the 2012-2013 school year. The age of...

    Firefighters in Britain said two crews responded to a report of a cow with its head stuck in a garden chair. Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue tweeted a picture showing the cow with its head trapped in a plastic lawn chair about 7:50 a.m. Thursday. The tweet said crews from Mounts and Wellingborough responded to the address in Boughton, England, to attempt to assist the boggled bovine. The fire department said the cow managed to "self-release" from its predicament, but not before firefighters snapped a picture of the cow wearing its unusual headgear.

    DEKALB, TX (KSLA) - Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moo: A DeKalb, TX cow has managed the extremely rare feat of giving birth to 4 live calves. The black calves, 3 bulls and a heifer, were born to the cow owned by Dora Rumsey-Barling and her husband, Jimmy. The cow, described by Dora as "just a run of the mill red cow," had been bred to an Angus bull, so all 4 of the calves are black. “We didn't think she was due, even for one calf,” Dora says. Buzzards spotted circling over their 100-acre property in the Hubbard community south of...
