Nothing makes a better barnyard frisbee than a dried cow pie.

This plan is both foolproof and cunning.
It's simple, so simple it's stunning.
You think that I lie?
Then go step in a pie.
I guarantee you will start running.

This isn't revolutionary. Monkeys at the zoo have been harnessing this power for years.

Charlton Heston: Soylent Cow Pies are people! They're people!!

Future Woman: We though we were eating cow flop!!

Charlton Heston: Noooooo, it's people!!

MaxxLarge, you're limericious!

BEHOLD, The power of cow pies.
2006-06-30 02:16:35 PM  
hmm, there is another way you can make cow pies work for you... it has to do with something that grows under them.
2006-06-30 02:18:00 PM  
but what about the sawdust industry?!?!?

/im telling you, the environment isnt worth saving on account of economic costs

Glad to see it catching on.

can you guess the item that grows under cow pies kids? I will give you another hint, you eat 'em. I know I know, it sounds gross, but let me tell you kids, its glorious
2006-06-30 02:21:56 PM  
YOU may eat shrooms, but I don't.
2006-06-30 02:22:25 PM  
Old news, I have heard of two other farms that did this first.

Does this mean eating one will be like coke?
2006-06-30 02:29:33 PM  
i know of a city in indiana that runs all of its natural gas via manure.

and they pay people to buy flexfuel cars

Vermont is trying to follow the Bush administation's lead of running a country on Bullshiat and HorseCrap.

Dead on the River

X-D Bwahhahahaha good stuff. Most trolls carefully sneak out from under their bridge and go attack someone. You've just broke the bridge to shreads with your massive troll back sir.

As a Vermonter, let me just drive the point home.

Vermont > The rest.

As soon as we secede, we're totally going to be the next Amsterdam.
2006-06-30 02:45:52 PM  
Please, Vermont, secede, and join Quebec. The rest of us New Englanders hate you smug socialists, so go where you're wanted.
2006-06-30 02:49:15 PM  
This is not news or new. When someone develops a piece of machinery to automate the process and put it on farms everywhere...that will be news.
I have a book from the 60's about producing your own power.
It describes biomass digesters as an old technology that will make a comeback.

BFD, they have been doing this in India for centuries. It's about time we caught up with third world technology.

They could make more money if they fertilized pot plants with it. Well, yes, that is illegal, so there's that....

I live in Vermont. Whatever you may think of the politics here Gothmolly, it is a beatiful place to live, and the people are, for the most part, nice, and don't hate their neighbors.

Animal poop trifecta in play.

BFD, they have been doing this in India for centuries. It's about time we caught up with third world technology.

India has been generating electricity on farms from cow poop and selling it back to the power company for centuries?

No, no, no. PSILOCYBIN mushrooms grow on top of cow pies, not under them.

Louie, the guy who uses his catch-phrase over and over, right? Yeah, I used to watch "The State" on MTV when MTV was still tolerable.

One in Washington uses tomato waste from a salsa factory and waste from a fish stick plant as fuel, Brickl said.
Yikes... Can you imagine what that place SMELLS like?
2006-06-30 05:28:48 PM

Proof that cow chips are indeed good for you to eat.

/no html for the time as i'm in a hurry
2006-06-30 07:41:08 PM  
Somehow I don't think making these poor creatures sleep in the own faecal matter is such a good idea, if PETA finds out theyr'll be hell to pay.
