There was report this morning of a cow at a California rendering plant testing positive for Mad Cow Disease. Now that’s pretty scary in and of itself. However, at the end of the report, the reporter noted that “cow futures” had dropped on the news. I had to admit, my twisted mind found some humor in the whole idea of “cow futures.”
Cow futures…really? If I were a cow, I don’t think I would ever have invested heavily in cow futures. When you think about it, they really don’t have much of one.
Seriously, let’s hope my bad joke is the worst thing that comes from this news.
