SIX cows have tumbled out the back of a truck driving along a highway in the Melbourne's southeast.

The truck driver lost his load of cows over a one kilometre stretch of the Princes Highway near Morwell about 1pm yesterday after a security gate at the back of his trailer become unlatched, police said.

Removing the fact of the bovine breavement, I find something particularly funny about cows falling out the back of a truck!

Am I having a quiet day, or what?

I'm really surprised the driver didn't have to change his pants after seeing his cows falling off the back of his truck.

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The only thing that could make the story funnier is if a PETA person was following in a car, as the cows fell.

Criiikkieee!

What a disastrous mess!

Well, mate, let me tell you that Missouri (where I live) is the second-largest producer of cattle in America (behind only (guess what) Texas).

Not that we have such things happening routinely here...well, at least not on the big highways....they use them to transport 'nucular' waste rather than cows...it might happen on the smaller roads, though.

);)

We have the best beef I think....if you ever have occasion to travel to Missouri, look me up, and I'll treat you to a steak at Everett's Restaurant.

By the way, mate, how do you spell "crrikkiee" (or whatever Steve Irwin says)? (And what does it actually translate as?)

LOL, (hope you are smiling too) .... I know it's a stereotype, but I invoke it in jest. My best friend traveled extensively in Australia, and fell in love with the place and the people. She convinced me that it might be a good place for someone like me to escape to ...

You'd be most welcome!

If I ever get to Mizoorah (that's how it's pronounced, isn't it?), I'll certainly look you up. I LOVE a good steak.

"Crikey" is a very old Aussie exclamation of surprise, as in "Howard Dean's just been elected President"..."CRIKEY!!!!"

If your gunna die, the LaTrobe Valley is the place to do it!

Hordes of locals probably descended brandishing knives and forks.

You're not spruiking for a Mr.Mayne are you ? (Or perhaps you are him...)

Anyway, I reckon as soon as that cow hit the road this morning it was frozen cold stiff. The wind through the LaTrobe Valley on a winters morning would freeze the balls off a satanic cult's brass monkey.

GROUND beef! was my daughter's reaction.

These cows fell out one or two at a time over a kilometer and the driver didn't notice? What was he driving?

Many strange things happen in Australia. That's what makes it fun. A Ute is a good thing to run over things with, but not one's self. Prayers to the deceased Ute driver. John Howard has just made a decree that all Utes on the road must have their lights on all day as a mark of respect for the fallen Ute driver.

That Roo is from KASIO, the Kangaroo Australian Secret Intelligence Organisation. He is there on surveilance purposes...MOSSAD has been tailing him for years...

It's so icy, the Tigers have called off training for the afternoon. What wimps ! The Queenstown Football Team South West Tasmania plays in minus three degrees on rock hard ground all the time.

Quite mad those Tasmanians...

Can you tell him to report back to base. KASIO Headquarters hasn't heard from him in weeks, since he was last seen hopping into an Airport Frequent Hoppers Lounge Bar.

Um.....exactly why is this funny? I don't mean to sound like a prude but Jesus, it's just terrible that these animals suffered like that. Don't get me wrong, I love a good burger but you guys sound as heartless as some DUer's when they heard Laura Ingraham had cancer. Not to compare the two but we are better than that. Sorry, I just really have a lot of compassion for animals.

I said I felt sorry for the cows. It would be a terrible way to die. Especially in the LaTrobe Valley, once the home of Jaidyn Leskie...

Hey, I just don't find it funny that some animals fell off of a truck. However, I would find it funny if there were six terrorists that were run over by a truck.
