Highland Tongue

Given this cow's red bangs, I assume that it can be none other than a kyloe, Scottish highland cattle. They're nice and shaggy so they can withstand the winds and rain that beset the highlands. That shaggy coat also results in leaner meat than most other beef cattle, who rely on subcutaneous fat for warmth. Mmm, subcutaneous fat. Time for another visit to Outback Steakhouse.

When I first saw this photo I was suitably disgusted by it having jammed its tongue up its nose. But then, in an attempt to be honest to myself, I realized that if I could jam my tongue up my nose, I would. I would do it a lot too. Much to the dismay of my wife, but to the delight of my children.

I love these cows! The disturbing thing is, I can do that too.

This is normal cow behavior. Dairy cows do it regularly. Im more disturbed by the beads of fluid that I imagine to be sweat or mucous of some sort on it nose.

Oh, on behalf of your wife, I'm begging you... please don't jam your tongue up your nose! What if it got stuck?
