Caution: Falling Cows

Oh Lordy! Do y'all have any idea how many years I have waited for a revelant opportunity to use this pic??

That day has finally come! Get a load of this:

Falling cow smashes van near Manson

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

MANSON, Wash. -- A Chelan County fire chief says a couple were lucky they weren't killed by a cow that fell off a cliff and smashed their minivan.

District 5 Chief Arnold Baker says they missed being killed by a matter of inches Sunday as they drove on Highway 150 near Manson.

The 600-pound cow fell about 200 feet and landed on the hood of the minivan carrying Charles Everson Jr. and his wife Linda of Westland, Mich., who were in the area celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary. They were checked at Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution.

The van was heavily damaged, including a broken windshield.

Charles Everson says he kept repeating, "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."
(The rest of this tragicomedy here.)

The unfortunate Bessie had to be put down. (Duh.)

I saw this on Northwest News this morning and almost blogged about it. Truth sure is stranger than freedom.

If rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck, then what does it mean when a cow falls on you on your anniversary?


(Steaks for everyone!??)
