DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An animal rights group is taking responsibility for hanging a sign on the Iowa State Fair butter cow, saying it represents "humankind's tyranny over defenseless animals."

Whoever is speaking for unmilked cows, needs to have a microphone and a pulpit. A little ejukashun can’t possibly hurt the animal rights crowd
If we didn’t eat dairy products, cows would be extinct. THEN what would the animal rights wackos have to say about that?
There you go again ..... making all kinds of sense! You know that liberals and enviroanimalwackos don't give a darn about logic or facts.
>> it represents “humankind’s tyranny over defenseless animals.”
Well, sure! Especially the tasty ones. :-)
And so it is written...
Your comment is just rude.
There is room for all of God’s creatures.....
Right next to the mashed potatoes. ;)
Be reasonable. How good to you think an animal rights activist would taste? The meat's too lean, no marbling, would be quite gamy, with everything it's read. Even if you beat with a police baton, it will never be very tender.
They don't have a good diet, they never get out in the open air, you'd have to overcook the meat just to make sure that any parasites it's ingested are dead. Remember, it's been out eating heaven-knows-what. Being free range, you have to cook it until it's dry, and all the flavor is gone, just to be sure.
Now, a good plump Baptist, on the other hand, basted over a mesquite fire...
A LEO/animal rights group collaboration?
If you want to push back.
And you know they’ve all eaten butter.
How about Marxist tyranny over tax payers!
So say the merciless slaughterers of innocent vegetables! sarc
Ummm! Please excuse my rant.
I am sure these whack jobs would hate to lose their ice cream. However, judging from their hatred of life’s pleasures at the expense of lower life forms, ice cream for them is like lye on the tongue. Maybe something else gone out of existence when cows became non-essential would tweak their pea brains. Plastics, adhesives, paint, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fibers, and coatings for paper and plywood are made from caseinates which is made from milk. Forget about Elmer’s Glue. It would, along with everything else, be gone. Also, an entire range of milk derived food products would no longer exist. No more pancakes, for instance. Great chiefs like Paula Dean would no longer bring joy to people’s lives from their cooking. Life would become zip, zap, zero—sterile!
I know it is on the far out, but these whack jobs think that humans would be better off if they were just fed a soup of scientifically created slop. Yep! That’s the ticket! Food would never be touched by the loving culinary arts of a cook in their own kitchen. No more fossil fuels needed to heat a pan of milk chocolate. Instead, it would be regulated by government law that no plant, animal, or sea critter could be taken away from their food chains and put in a bag of gluck for human consumption. Instead human nutrition would be made from approved laboratory derived synthetics.
In the Utopian dreams of the environmental whack job, humans should exist in a pod, never to set foot on Mother Earth. Environmental whack jobs hate anybody that wipes their feet on Mother Earth. Good night! Man must never desecrate nature. That is mortal sin!
In light of the wet dreams of the environmental whack jobs, I give a modest proposal. Man must be isolated from the natural world in such a way that they would exist in closed environments, fed by wires and tubes. Ah! The control over other human animals! No one would need to access to transportation. The only interaction one would experience would be from computers and a direct wire implanted in the brain. Imagine the video games and stimulation one would get with a computer hooked directly to the brain! Imagine sipping a soup that tastes like pizza! Oh the bliss of geek heaven! It would be a step up technologically from the existence of our domesticated animals now, but on the same level of dumb and happy.
The environmental geek whack jobs would reach their goal as masters of the human animal!
think of the pain they caused the cow, when the tape was pulled off. hypocrites
(yes, I know it was painless, but they probably don’t know that)
We could be rid of the ecoterrorists if we could convince them that plants feel pain. They’d have to choose between starving to death and abandoning their idiotic holier-than-thou beliefs.
>> Your comment is just rude.
I don’t care what you call me, momma — just as long as you call me for dinner! :-)
I think you are on to something here! Yes plants feel pain! I’ll tell them that over and over again for the cause!
Lol! You have a good point.
“For Dinner” is a strange name but if you insist. :)
Kinda reminds me of the theory that whales are as intelligent as humans. They ever prove that and EVERYBODY will be out hunting whales. teehee.
I grew up on a grain, beef and dairy farm. What the hell is a butter cow?
A sculpture of a cow made from mmmmm...butter...
A representational sculpture of a milk cow made from many pounds of butter kept in a refrigerated case with windows. Been at the state fair for many years.
Okay, thanks, makes sense now.
