Brand Spankin' New!!

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome....

To the "new" blog.

Looks pretty much like the old one, doesn't it? :)

So, to kick off the new era that is my new bloglink, I'm going to have a giveaway! Yay!!

And as part of that giveaway, I'd like to ask you a question:

Suppose we went to the moon, and found aliens there. The aliens look like cows, like earth cows, basically they ARE earth cows - except they can talk. Can we still eat them? I mean, they're cows. But they talk. But they're cows.

This question needs to be answered from a meat-eater's perspective only. Vegetarians don't have a horse in this race - so to speak - so I really only want to hear the opinion of habitual earth-beef eaters.

To enter the giveaway, complete the following steps:

1. Answer the deep, philosophical question in a comment on this post

2. Post the link and details surrounding this giveaway on your blog (for example, you need to mention it involves me having a new URL - and that, if they were followers under the old URL, they have to unfollow the old one and click to follow the new onw.) And, oh yeah, comment here telling me about it.

3. Include a picture of a cow in the post talking about the giveaway.

Each step gives you one entry. The giveaway will end on Midnight my time March 13.

The grand prize?

A Chick-fil-A gift card.

Fear not, international BBs. If I draw your name, I will give you your choice of a great gift card for online use.

  1. yum! depends on what they say....
    if they say "Hello, how very nice to meet you. I have a soul and would prefer you not eat me" then i guess leave em alone.

    if they say " Moo, i like to eat grass. Moo, i like to flip my tail. Moo." (which i think is more likely, seeing as this is a very realistic story and all), fire up the barbee.

    love me some Chick-fil-A!

  2. I'm not sure I'd be able to eat a cow that spoke. I'd have a very hard time rationalizing eating a living, breathing, talking, cow. Something that could literally yell "help!" when being, um, prepared for eating...I think I'd go vegetarian then!

    I LOVE me some Chick-fil-A! I swear, I eat there at least once every 2 weeks. =) It's an addiction.

  3. If I only had casual, shallow conversation with the cow I think I could do it, no problem. The ctach would be not asking her name. ;)

    Bring on the Chick-Fil-A
    (Seriously, as lame as it sounds, my fav place!)

  4. That is an interesting question...

    I think I'd have to go with no. If the cows can talk, we are going to have to find another source of meat. Although I guess it might depend on what the cows can say...are they intelligent? Or are they more like a parrot who just mimics? If they have the capacity to form intelligent sentences...even like Coco the gorilla who can use sign language...then I'd say it's a no-go for eating them. If they are just copying people who are saying "moo" to them, then that is a different story and I think maybe I could still have a hamburger. :)

    Although, if I had to just eat Chick-fil-A for the rest of my life, I could probably deal with that ;)

  5. i love this question! love it!
    you don't even have to enter me in the drawing b/c i would have to have the fried chicken nuggets things and i could swim in the BBQ sauce. and, because I'm not fond of eating red meat anyway.

    but no way jose. seriously. if they can talk, i'm assuming that they probably have a full vocabulary. and i'm pretty sure that they would wage war against humans that like to eat them. think about it. they ahve had family members brutally slaughtered. while they're stuck eating grass. i'd say, if cows talked, we'd be dead. a slow and miserable and painful death. maybe even and eye-for-an-eye.
    i'll just pet them and love them instead.

  6. hmm...if cows could talk?? I would say not to eat the talking cows as long as we can still eat the non-talking cows. It would be killer to have to give up steak;)

    I have blogged about the giveaway and I included a kinda creepy cow pic.

  8. Sorry this is sort of a random comment... I followed your unsubscribing directions. I hope it works now. It still doesn't shop up in my reader but maybe once you update again.

  9. There is no way I could eat a cow that talked. No way. If any animal spoke, nope. Then its like eating a person...kinda. Lol.

  10. I just found your new blog... now before you think I just forgot about you I have been travelling and I haven't been doing much blog reading. But I thought it was quite comical that you are giving away a Chick-fil-a gift card because I have seriously ate there twice in the three days I have been here (the first being a Sunday and so I couldn't have ate there if I wanted to). I introduced Grace to the best chicken in the world and she ate seven nuggets! lol

    But to answer your question... hmm.. that is pretty deep. I say we forget the cows and eat the Chicken BUT it HAS TO BE Chick-fil-a!

  11. I love me some Chik Fil A but I'm not sure I could eat cows that talked. Do I have to see them talking? Do I have to have a conversation with them? If I don't actually hear them talking, well, then maybe.

  12. I just found your blog and this is a rather interesting question. My husband would eat the talking cow, NO question. But me on the other hand... Talking cows would freak me out! If they can say, "please don't eat me!" or "help" I would run for the hills! And hopefully those hills would be full of chicken because Chick Fil A is my favorite fast food place hands down!!!
