Cattle Class

This Ain't The Calgary Stampede

There was a stampede at McDonald's in West Haven, Utah. No, not customers. Cows. Yup, cows. Yup, I see the irony of this situation! Eight of them escaped from a trailer when the rear gate opened as the driver pulled in. It took about two hours to round them up. "Maybe they were going to hop in the freezer, save the middleman," Weber County sheriff's Sgt. Dave Creager said. The roundup was called "Operation Hamburger Helper" and a nearby resident even hopped on his horse. Wayne Sanders said, "I don't know where they came from, but I'd say they'd have to weigh 800 pounds apiece and they were on a pretty good trot."

FOOTNOTE: Would you like frights with that?

REAL meat at Mickey-D's? That's impossible! Even I won't eat that stuff anymore! Only Sonic for ME!

And I have been known to eat some pretty nasty stuff in the past!
