~“Chickens and Cows”~

Published: Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 09:44 AM.

A farmer offered the boy a cow to help out.  What did the young man do with the cow?  He decided to raffle it off.  The venture sounds logical to me.  As a matter of fact, for a 14 year-old, it sounds brilliant.

The boy is selling tickets for $10 a pop and hopes to sell a thousand.  That would more than cover the cost of his trip and perhaps give him a little spending money.

You know what happens with stories like this.

I understand that there are folks that do not eat meat and feel none of us should eat meat.  They can have their opinions, this is America.  However, they should leave this young entrepreneur alone and let him raffle his cow.

These folks sent the young man a nasty letter about mistreating cows and animals in general.  They also sent him pictures of nice looking women in lettuce bikinis.

I guess that is supposed to make us want to eat lettuce, instead of cows.

The young man is not telling anyone what to do with the cow should they win the raffle. In other words, he’s not telling them to eat it.  However, this is America, if they want to eat it, I think they still can.
