  •  Two cows were grazing alongside a highway when a tanker carrying milk passed the field they were in. On the side of the truck in big red letters were the words, “Pasteurized, homogenized, standardized, Vitamin A added.”

    One cow turned to the other and remarked, “Makes you feel sort of inadequate, doesn’t it?”
