  1. You know what’s going to happen now…. don’tcha! AND I’ve had my coffee this morning!

  2. Fun Ag Facts IX (Revenge of the straight to dvd facts!)

    Most cows give more milk when they listen to music. If you make them listen to really cool bump n grind music, Milkshake comes out!

    It takes 7 tablespoons of peanut butter (680 cal.) to get the same amount of protein in serving of lean beef (154 cal.) If you coat the beef in peanut butter first though, you’ll get a lot more protein and you can pretend it’s Satay Beef and you’re a great chef! (although you’ll fool no one).

    Almost 67% of the world’s okra is produced in India! India does NOT have a popular TV host called Okra Winfrey though…

    Apple pie was invented in Europe sometime during the 14th century. The english also invented the toilet seat! However it was the Irish who came up with the idea of cutting a hole in it first….

    Rabbits weigh from 2 to 11 pounds, Unless it’s a “mother in law” rabbit, in which case it weighs a hell of a lot more, does nothing but complain and overstays it’s welcome.

    Cows can hear lower and higher frequencies better than humans. They also taste much better than human’s too…….um…… I’ve been told….

    A 3-ounce lean cut of #beef has 4.5 grams or less of saturated fat which is why it’s really important to cover that cut with BBQ sauce, and eat lots of buttery salted potatoes and fries with it too! Gotta get that saturated fat taste!

    A mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse. A hinny is the offspring of a male horse and a female donkey. However, ANYBODY.. can be a jackass!

    96% of U.S. farms are run by families, farmer partnerships, or co-ops. However, not one of these farmers will admit to having giant 40 foot tall chickens in barns!

    Deer are herbivores, so they are the vegetarians of the animal world. Yet people can understand it when you hit a deer with your car, but when I drive my car full speed through a vegan convention “I’m” the monster…..

    California produces nearly 89% of strawberries in the United States. They also product 89% of all hippies in the USA. Good or Evil, you decide….

    Turkeys can run up to 20 miles an hour with short flight bursts up to 55 miles per hour, which proves how dumb they are as flying would be much faster than all that stupid walking they do!

    Rabbits can run 35 miles per hour. They are faster than cats. If rabbits could run any faster, I wouldn’t still have one stuck to the tire on my car.

    Iron, Zinc, Iodine, and Vitamin A are the big four micronutrient deficiencies in the world. Meat is the big deficiency in the Vegan World!

    Tomatillos need a second plant to enhance pollination and guarantee fruit set! So just goes to show, Tomatillos are the “kinky” of the plant world!

    Turkeys are the only breed of poultry native to the Western Hemisphere. Yet it’s “Chicken” that people agree is “Finger lickin good”. Take that Turkey!

    Beef fat, called tallow, is an ingredient in soaps, cosmetics, candles, shortenings, and chewing gum. So if you’re poor and can’t afford a porterhouse steak, eat a bar of soap covered with candlewax sauce! It’s basically the same thing….

    13% of U.S. agricultural exports originate in California. I just wish they’d stop exporting Hippies to Oregon!

    Only young asparagus shoots are commonly eaten. Once the buds start to open or “fern out”, the shoots quickly turn woody and tough. Which just goes to show that vegans are “Ageist” and only like the “young” plants. Boo!
