Live Like You Mean It....

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Thanks, guys. It was a blast to put together. If I find the time, I'll put the suggestions into version 1.2.

The cow needs an udder.

Excellent job, even so. Made me laugh so hard my cat got up to see what was the matter.

Yeah, the current version is an udder travesty.

Oh. My. God. You're absolutely right. That's what was nagging at me the whole time I worked with it. Did I find a boy Holstein? Shouldn't there be something else there instead?

Now this is bothering me. Did someone previously 'shop the source image to remove the naughty bits?

It's obvious I have to make things right, but it will have to wait until next week.

[edit]
I may have used a heifer. I'm guessing the udder doesn't become enlarged until the first calf, but I'm also no farmer.

[son of edit]
Wait a second, does the "heifer" in that Wikipedia picture have a dong?

From that thread, here's another pretty good modification of the theme, already being merchandised.

Amusing-- they're trying to avoid copyright infringement by using a slightly different font, and modifying the cartwheel guy.

Living like you mean it. To me, that suggests the life intense. Something David Lynch-ian like Wild at Heart or Blue Velvet.

I dunno about you but I like my privacy.
The less people there are at the campground or the beach, the better.
So I'd be fine with keeping the tourists out with something like:
Ed Gein slept here
Or
Wisconsin: Home of Jeffery Dahmer

I like your thinking on this one....
Let's not name names though. How about something more subtle?

Wisconsin: A Pretty Good State, Actually, But We're Not The Kind Of People To Brag About It, You Know? So We Don't Actually Want One Of Those Official Slogan Things, Thanks.


Might be hard to fit that on a bumper sticker, though.

Oh Sconnie demon and faithful cow-panion, I wish I knew how to quit you.

Gonna be a little cluttered for the thong, I'm afraid.
