Al Cow-eda

Here in the States right now the Homeland Security threat level is a warm orange colour which roughly translates to “be afraid, be very afraid… but not completely terrified just yet”.

Just to show how vigilant the country needs to be against terrorism, when a case of mad cow disease was found in Washington state, the Agriculture Secretary rushed to assure the public that the case was not terrorist related.

Phew! For a moment there I had visions of airport security screeners profiling crude pantomime cows (or at least the ones with moustaches).

Terrorist cows; what a silly idea. Everybody knows it’s the snakes, hippos and royal bull terriers that you have to watch out for.
