You think your neighbors are bad? Try living with a lady who kept cows in her upstairs apartment.

Hmm... I think they're milking it a bit.

It's a good thing they moooved out, or the downstairs neighbor would have had a beef with them.

"...health and safety officials had ordered the cows to be cleared out..."

Bovine intervention.

Cows on the ground floor are okay, there's little risk, but when you put them on the top floor the steaks are too high.
Heh heh - we've got the cow puns down pat.

Don't have a cow, man.

i used to live right below a family that planted a wall-to-wall vegetable garden in their living room and had countless egg laying chickens and a rooster. i kid you not. this wasn't a duplex, this was a highrise and they were on the 21st floor, me on the 20th. eventually the ceiling over my bedroom started to cave in and management was forced to do something about the situation.

oddly enough my 2 roommates and i really missed being woken up by the rooster every morning, once it was gone 8-)

for torontonians who may read this: it happened at the st. jamestown complex at wellesley and parliament, "the winnipeg" building, circa 1985. back when the area wasn't quite yet the slumlord's wet dream it is today.

Lucky for the neighbors the cows aren't armed.

Clearly a case of cows and effect.

Hey, these puns aren't calf-bad!

Well, maybe half-and-half.

If I were a neighbor, I would have moved out in a hoof.

That apartment building must have been fit for manure beast.
I got nothing else...sorry.

I tell you, this all sounds like bull.

That's a moooo-t point, Fofer.

I'd be veally upset if something like that happened to me.

You should always keep your cows on the bottom floor. Haven't you ever heard of ground beef?

Forget it, I cow you later.

He can't force her to chuck them out. How dairy be so bossy! He butter cud it out, or veal have to go steer him straight.

Isn't this the silliest thing to go pasturize today?

GWB on the issue:

madprops, you win. This thread made my day; in fact, it got me so excited and jumpy, I had to switch to de-calf-einated coffee!

posted by eddydamascene at 8:50 PM on August 31, 2002


I guess the apartment lactose qualities important for keeping cattle; maybe there just wasn't enough ruminant. Besides, the other neighbors were really loud, playing their Casein The Sunshine Band records all night long. I could be herd all over the building. Oh well, maybe they'll find a really Bos farmhouse to live in.

Anyway, you should all go to bed, it's pasture bedtime.

Did they round her up and take her away in the patty wagon?
BTW pa never herd of her but manure.

Evanizer's right, go to bed. Trust him, he wouldn't steer you wrong...but enough with the ribbing...

At least cows have stable lives.

All this punning made me sick to my stomach(s).

Well, I'm not sure I can see the moovie when it comes out. Guess I'll just have to rennet.
