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.
