How now brown cow

My favourite fact that I’ve read all day, from the pages (actually, just page 23) of the January 2006 edition of Men’s Health magazine:

1 in 10 people in the UK haven’t seen a cow for 10 months.

Which either means that not enough of us get out to the countryside as often as we should, or that there are an awful lot of British cattle missing out there.

I assume that they mean a live cow, and that a packet of Bird’s Eye beefburgers doesn’t count.

You can Send a Cow to someone this Christmas. My Mum sent me a goat!
