Q: If you dance with a cow, who leads?
A: The one with the tie.
I made this stupid joke up in my sleep (obviously). I am beginning to believe that listening to the Wiggles (an Australian based children's group) is taking its toll on my brain. I'm assuming this joke stemmed specifically from one Wiggle's song with lyrics that go something like, "I'm a cow. I'm a cow. I eat green grass and I give white milk, I'm a cow. I'm a cow." There is some mooing that goes with this song, but I'm not in the mood to transcribe them.
See what I mean.
For those agriculturally impaired people, the cow joke works (although weakly) on a couple of levels. Cows are female for one and generally don't lead while dancing. You can lead a cow around with a roped "tied" around her neck or if you are male wearing a "tie" you traditionally lead while dancing.
I'll be the first one to admit that if you have to explain a joke in that much detail it isn't much of a joke. But for a joke conceived while in a dream state, I'd say it is pretty good.
For a cow joke.
What an udderly ridiculous joke!
Time to mooove along .....
No bull. What's your beef? It's not like there is anything at steak here. I was just cudding.
Back in the day, Barney used to have a song that included these lyrics:
I like my head
How about you?
It let's me know I'm alive
Of all the things I can do with my head
I can surely do at least five
The rest of the song then lists those fascinating uses.
The Wiggles sound like lyric poets in comparison.
I think Barney's songs are derivative of early Nirvana. They are lyrical yet whimsical with a touch of irony.
Or they are just stupid.
If you're dancing with a cow you have bigger problems than figuring out who leads!
Fun catching up -- you never are boring! Peace, JP/deb
Growing up in Idaho I used to help my friend bring in his father's cows to hook them up to a milker. It was like dancing. And boy did it hurt when they stepped on your feet. Cows don't always like to be led.
