Cow Milk is a Lethal Weapon

Well, you’d be wrong. I get mad at a lot of things. Take politicians, for instance. They promise everything and always come up short, especially when it comes to putting a tenderloin in every bowl.
I get angry at cats too. They just yap it up all day long…meow, meow, meow…and then expect to be waited on hand and foot. How much can a dog take when he’s trying to nap the day away?
Want to see my big head get red hot? Turn on the TV and have me watch rich, lazy dogs that have done nothing to deserve the camera time. You and I both know I should be the one in high definition playing the leading love bug.
But there’s one act that trumps all of that: the willful misuse/destruction of food.
Needless to say, I was not happy when I read this story from The Telegraph UK is any indication.
Over 2,500 farmers from across the EU blockaded the area outside the European Union’s headquarters, burning tires and hay outside an emergency meeting of farm ministers.
They drove hundreds of tractors to the centre of Brussels and covered the streets in milk and manure.
The jittery cow, frightened by firecrackers, sprang loose and chased an office worker down the street.
Farmers want regulations to shield them from market fluctuations and have been protesting for weeks, arguing production costs are currently up to twice as high as market prices. They have dumped tens of millions of gallons of milk into streets and fields to highlight their plight.
If they’d just throw cereal into the streets too, then maybe all is not lost.
