"They both have had cow-vehicle accidents."

Truly, a match made in heaven.

...and they're getting married in Haiti. Hmmm....looks like they could go out simultaneously, too.

"You don't have your little thing to show off to the other one."

Must have lost it in that cow-vehicle accident.

I hate this story at the same time that I am both repulsed and eerily fascinated by it.
 
2006-05-15 08:46:19 AM  
What will they ever talk about once they've been married for a few years? I mean they've even both had cow-vehicle accidents. ;-)

Man, the birthday sex must rock.
 
2006-05-15 08:51:31 AM  
They were in the same nursery as infants?

They're used to the smell of each other's diapers. That'll come in handy later on.

"Even I stop and think about it. Like the other day she was on the phone, and they were asking for her birth date. She said four twenty-seven of '82. I'm like, that's my birthday. No one has a birthday on my birthday."

Like, you're a dick, Brian.

And the manager just looked at us like, yeah right, whatever," Naomi said.

And you're, like, no better, Naomi.

Nice that you both, like, like each other though.

The president of the company I work for has a daughter who was a "roommate" of mine during our first days on the planet, also. Same day, same year, same hospital, about 2 hours apart.

She's already married, though.

Although both were raised on farms, they like to argue about what kind of meat is better.

"Dairy's better," says Brian, who grew up on a dairy farm.

"No, beef is better," says Naomi, whose family raised beef cows.

"We always go back and forth on the dairy and beef thing," Brian said.


err....dairy meat?

\either the reporter can't write for shiat, or Brian doesn't know what the hell 'meat' is
\\down pillows are better!
\\\no, the red sox are better!

Sadly I know the locals pronounce it Hay Tie. It's a town in SD. Also there's Sinai pronounced sign ee eye.

maybe a little of both. I think the reporter was trying to comment on which one was better to raise on your farm. beef or dairy cattle. They are distinctly different operations. Also however beef cattle and dairy cattle TASTE different. Dairy cattle have babies too...those babies grow up to get eaten. They have distinctly different meat qualities however from "beef" cattle which are genetically optimized for producing meat rather than milk.

In two years:

"I want a divorce"

"OMG-- so do I! That's, like, awesome! LOL!"

My reaction is something between utter fascination and wanting to vomit. Although I have to admit, the cow-vehicle accident really makes me think. I mean, isn't that crazy???
 
hlx
2006-05-15 09:47:16 AM  
of course they had cow related accidents- they were both raised on farms that had herds of cows. duh
 
2006-05-15 09:49:17 AM  
It really makes you wonder how many cow-vehicle accidents just go completely unreported. I mean, this cow-vehicle thing must be epidemic in the farming community. I think Oprah should definitely do something about this.
 
2006-05-15 09:56:04 AM  
Hazard to guess 99% of the commentors so far are from a major city on the coast(or from a costal state) and their parents are divorced (or were only raise by one parent).

Sappy? Kinda. It happens though folks...I dated a girl that was born the say day and year I was. You really just don't focus on it until that last week before your birthday. Otherwise, it's one of those 'it's humorous but otherwise...big deal' kind of things.

As for them divorcing...well if they stay up in SD or ND, they have a pretty good chance at a longer marriage. Midwest couples have longer marriages on average than any costal state marriage.

Lots of 'cute' stories out there...this one just happened to catch a journalist's ear.

wtf is a cow-vehicle accent?

Current girlfriend's folks own a dairy farm. It happens more often than you think. Especially if that mother gets it in her head you are too close to her calf (I.E. If she can see you, you are too close). Cows will charge your vehical if they think you are a threat.

Not to mention the whole 'walking out infront of a car' thing.

If you own a dairy or beef farm, it's almost a given.

As for the taste: normally dairy cows turn into your ground hamburger meat. There is a difference between dairy and beef cows when it comes to steaks. Being that her folks give me damn near a 1/4 to 1/2 a cow every six months or so (and all the free milk we want, though I usually only use it for cooking), I can qualify the previous poster's remark on the taste difference.

eek.

A cow stepping out infront of your moving vehical or a pissed off cow charging/ramming your vehical.

Bulls and heifers with new calfs love to charge damn near anything that moves. Some cows are just naturally assholes, while others turn into big pets.
 
2006-05-15 10:09:35 AM  
I rode a bike into a cow when I was 9 or so. Does that count? Personally, I always figured that meant I was being a dumbass, but it's good to know it's more common than I thought.

So cute! Someone should inform them about reality before it's too late.

I really think

That this new writing style

where we have only a short phrase or maybe a sentence

and then we skip a line

is going to

catch

on.

poorly written story that could have been a cool feature. shame that the reporter can't write.
 
2006-05-15 11:03:16 AM  
what a load of happycrasspassshiat. sappy indeed.
I'm going back to read the 18month old with missing hand story again.

OK, it probably is sappy, but I was kind of touched. Perhaps because my first kiss and crush was in Ms. Kelly's class behind the bookcase with Stacey Phelps who was also born on the same day as me. I haven't seen here since 8th grade, but I wonder from time to time. She was certainly hot as I recall. Hmmm, maybe I'll go check google and foobies and see if I can find her.

Who cares about a bunch of weird Lincoln-Kennedy style coincidences, as long as you love the person you're with? Living your whole life on a gimmick is a little iffy.

Also, people naturally find things in common with each other. That's normal. My fiancee and I, for instance, both like sex. OMG that doesn't mean anything.
 
2006-05-15 11:19:42 AM  
bdub77 "My fiancee and I, for instance, both like sex."

So do myself and my partner. Now if we could both just like it on the same day....

man what a boring ass relationship... I mean shiat, they argue about which meat is better, Dairy or Beef. I bet the sex sucks.

Oh wait, they already did that by voting out Daschle and banning abortions.
