Is this where the Davos forum on economic theft is taking place? Did all the BS catch on fire?

Glad there were no deaths.Seems like security was beefed up too much.I hope the injury to the single cow wasn’t to her calf and results in compensation for her since she now has a steak in the building.Thanks for not trying to rib us by milking the article. Grass, ass, to gas! Nobody rides for free! Just sayin…..

Mrs. O’Leary never got a bum wrap. She didn’t do anything…her Cow did…whether it is was a her Cow that kicked over lantern or copious amount of Cow gas that started the fire does not put blame at her feet. Now for the Cow…maybe it was his BUM that started the fire so it is a BUM wrap in a different sense. So possibly the blame could be laid at the Cow’s Bum? Now that is funny or nailing it!!!

Can you imagine if a “static electric charge” should hit the Congress of the United States while in session!

I think there is a good chance that the dairy had video cams recording when this happened. Could somebody in Germany find out and get them released? This video could be a national treasure, to be studied carefully by folks all over the world. I hope the dairy understands what it has here.

Crash866, That is what getting a bum wrap means; some is accused while innocent. :-)

Which makes one wonder how this does not happen in DC from time to time.

There is a high probability that the injured cow was burned, at least in large part, by her own faecal molecules. Let us hope she would be comforted somewhat by this irony if it should occur to her.

Mammals do not digest soy products very well. Change their diets and they get less and less gassy.
