In Defense of the Cows

I’ve had the idea for this website for all of one total day, and in telling people about it I’ve noticed a thread.  Something to the effect of:

But my cow is an angel!

I want to make this very clear: I don’t have anything against cows.  In fact, I am quite fond of our bovine companions.  Lovable, loyal, and dapper I say.  The very first SCA group I was a part of has a cow as its symbol and claims all land where cows live.  So since a dishonored cow could presumably not inherit, and I still want them to gain land, I have little interest in spreading dishonor among cows.  And as a carnivore, I respect the noble sacrifice of le boeuf.  So the title of the blog casts aspersion on no specific cows.  While I might make posts calling dishonor on someone’s person and their cows for things they have done, I’m using the cow as a metaphor for their whole being.  It’s a metaphorical cow not an allegorical cow, because I didn’t say the cow was like their whole being.

Well, alright.  One group of specific cows.  Ninja cows can suck it.  They really do know what they did.

  1. I’m willing to take a vow to never bring dishonor on my cow. Fortunately, my cows are all self-respecting cows and not those free-love hippy cows. Just kidding, some of my cows are hippy cows. I’ll try not to dishonor them either. But once they start drinking, I can make no promises about what they themselves may or may not do.

  2. Hello,I noticed your blog named “In Defense of the Cows | Dishonor on Your Cow” regularly. Your writing style is spectacular, keep up the good work! And you can look our website about 李宗瑞.
