Save the cows!!!!!

Today it happened again.
A customer asked if we had cow mulch.

I say the time has come to stop this barbaric shredding of cows!
What sane person can pour bits and pieces of cows onto his or her flowerbed and feel nothing wrong with it?! (Not to mention the blood seeping into the ground water….)

cows
Run, cows, ruuuuuun!!!!!

Or…

… maybe they meant bark mulch?

:rofl:

Let me give you a quick German lesson:

Mulch - - - mulch

Rind - - - cow
Rinder - - - cows
Rindermulch - cow mulch

Rinde - - - bark
Rinden - - - barks
Rindenmulch - bark mulch

Dear customers, the only cow product you can buy for your garden is cow crap dung (Rinderdung).
Ah, you think Rindermulch is bark mulch? Sorry, no. Please go back to school and learn the basics of your mother tongue. While you’re there maybe someone’ll teach you the difference between going to and after people as well…

*sighs mournfully*

    So a native German speaker asked for cow mulch when they actually meant bark mulch? Were they from Bavaria?

    Over here in the U.S. cow mulch is called hamburger. I used to love to eat grilled cow mulch! Haven’t eaten it for years though. Some idiot from Texas (there are a lot of idiots from there!) came up with the bright idea of feeding cow mulch to cows. The Texans then outsourced the idea to England where multiply recycled cow mulch was fed in mass quantities to English school children.

    Well anyway, your German cows in the picture look like happy cows. At least they get to live outside and eat grass. :)

    Over here there is a TV commercial for a chicken restaurant. It shows cows holding up “Save the Cows, Eat More Chicken” signs. :)

    Mwahaahaaa! Great!

    @David: Without having seen or heard those customers I can say: No, they weren’t from Bavaria, they were from the region where we live.
    People around here can’t speak. Sad, but true…

    Mafdet, I was just making a little joke about Bavarians, as I know how much Mel hates them. ;)

    In Alabama, where I mostly grew up, there are a great many people who can’t speak either. They have their own dialect which is a mixture of hillbilly and redneck. They make really good cornbread though, and they like their okra crispy fried not slimy! :)

    Ahhhh, you mean it’s not just Americans who are language challenged! Thank God! :lol:

    P.S. Haloscan ate my cookies. :(

    @ David: Bavarians don’t speak German. I’d have phrased things differently then.
    But I was talking about native German speakers, yes. Foreigners learning the language would have had an excuse. Native speakers just don’t. :annoyed:

    No, no, the Brits are more “famous” for feeding Scrapie sheep mulch to cows…. :-|

    I think the cows were more bewildered than happy that afternoon and definitely wondering about the weird noise. (We were playing metal and punk tapes on D.’s infernal car battery powered stereo.) I think they came to spy on us. :shifty:

    No comment on the chickens…

    @ Frenzie: Indeed.

    @ Mafdet: Well, I just had to let it out. They make that mistake so often….

    @ David: It’s no quaint rural dialect. They just don’t know how to speak German.

    Hell, I love my okras crispy or slimey! Want fresh okras nowwwwwwwwwwwwww! :dream: (for those members of the Arab (or Turkish) league that aren’t too much into learning the fancier vegetable names: we’re talking about bamya)

    @ Lynnette: No, the people around here are very challenged too….

    Um. This here no Haloscan. This here Wordpress comment thingy. *spanks Wordpress comment thingy for eating Lynnette’s cookies*

    I thought Bavaria was in Germany. If Bavarians are Germans, why don’t they speak German? Are they like French speaking Canadians who live in Quebec? Quebec nearly seceded from Canada over their language and cultural differences. Do Bavarians want to be independent also?

    What?!! You love crispy okra?!! You never admitted that before. ;)

    Bavaria is in Germany. And the Bavarians do think they speak German…

    Happy Thanksgiving Mel! :) I hope you have all the stuffed okra you can eat! ;) Do they make soy turkey?

    Is it Thanksgiving over there?

    Happy Thanksgiving then!

    I don’t have stuffed okra cos there are no fresh okras for sale here. I’ll try in the greenhouse next year…

    :sick: soy meat. Wheat meat is the thing to eat.

    Damn, I started on Damascus pt2 yesterday (slow start, no reason to form queues yet), and thought I’d have ample time to continue today, but I think I am sickening for something and feel feverish, so no work. Brain is derailed. :-|

    Actually, quite frankly, the commentary is more interesting messages themselves. (Not to insult the author, of course:))
