I've always wondered too, who got the idea to squeeze these dangly things under a cow and drink what comes out.

I would rather be in the boat with a drink on the rocks, than in the drink with the boat on the rocks!

Offered fried cow's tongue (a considerable delicacy in some parts), the missus replied, "I'll eat nothing that comes from an animals mouth!". Without missing a beat, the host responded, "Would madam care for an omelet, then?"
