To say we are excited does not even begin to explain it. Tonight on the Oscars they are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of James Bond movies and a whole slew of the Bond actors are going to be there. Adele is even set to perform the theme to Skyfall. Seriously, we're secret agent cows and seeing one of the greatest spies in history at the Oscars is awesome!
Bond Bovine Humor
We don't have many gadgets like Bond on our missions and the closest we've ever been to "shaken not stirred" is when there was a very slight earthquake at milking time.
I did have one of the girls put together a nice montage of our dairy cow secret agents doing their work set to the James Bond theme song.
Obviously not all of the secret agent cows on the farm are excited about giving up something for Lent, but I suggested it might at least be a good character building opportunity for each of them. Some are giving up watching their soap operas. Others have chosen to eat the hay The Farmer feeds stems first then the green leafy parts, sorta like Thumper's father might have recommended. I know of at least three that are giving up saying bad words in "Moo" for the entire time. Some of these are tough!
For those of you giving up junk food and soda and trying to curb your bad habits I have a suggestion I'd like to make: try dairy foods! Whether it be milk, yogurt, cheese, or ice cream you'll find that they are not just delicious, but also nutritious!
Webmaster Agent 477 was recently emailed a link to The Hidden Costs Of Milk. She watched it with puzzlement and dismay. While she thought some of the information was good, other parts she disagreed with. So Agent 427 took it upon herself to remix the video with a few extra facts thrown in for good measure.
After watching her remix I realized it was lacking in direction. The video should not be the hidden costs of milk, but rather the hidden value of milk! Milk is nature's most perfect food! That is the right direction. I have commissioned her to create a new video to represent this and hopefully she'll finish soon.
