That's actually incredibly strange. Maybe she was like the "cow goddess" or something.

I can't get past the headline. Cow and Chicken were brother and sister, not husband and wife.

They uncovered a grave like this in Mexico also, but it was a donkey not a cow.

Not unusual. They'd often bury people with cows, hoping that their dearly departed would be resurrected. They truly believe in the idea of bovine intervention.

Let us not judge people of a different time. It was a very rural area and if everyone was an adult who are we to criticize. Besides, if it was OK for the Egyptians, it was probably OK for other folks as well.

/tolerance!

I love stuff like this. Probably has an easy explanation that ppl completely overlook.


"Hey that biatch Berthat died. What should we do with her body?"

"Eh...throw her in the hole with the cow."

If the chicken's feeling lonely, I know a couple of Farkers over on the Politics tab who'd give her some loving.

Were there ping pong balls and beer bottles found along with them instead of knives and decorations?

Leviticus 20:16 "If a woman has sex with an animal, you must kill both the woman and the animal. They must be put to death. And they are responsible for their deaths.

Wadda want to bet?

Yeah, that must be why they buried her with all that valuable stuff, too.

I like your explanation (practical).

Here's one of the vengeful sort: a woman is killed by a cow (I dunno-- kicked, crushed?) and her grieving relative in some position of authority orders the cow to be killed.
