In a bizarre twist on the Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy saga (also known as BSE or “Mad Cow” disease) bovines angered by dairy farmers with chapped hands marched on London to protest ham handed scratchiness. After several messy hours of negotiation the cows eventually calmed and the city returned to normal.
Chaffed and dismayed, the group of 47 Holsteins crossed London and met Defra officials (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs). Local cow language interpreter Angus Jersey was called in and talked with the Holsteins on behalf of Defra. After several hours of discussion the cows returned to their paddocks having receiving promises that Defra would investigate the “ill treatment of cow mammary.” Reportedly the cows defecated here and there along a meandering path across the city.
Said an unnamed Defra official, “shit this is a mess.”
“You should be on this side,” a Holstein reportedly rebutted.
