Farting Cows Start Fire At German Dairy Farm: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Methane gas from 90 flatulent cows exploded in a German farm shed on Monday, damaging the roof and injuring one of the animals, police said.


High levels of the gas had built up in the structure in the central German town of Rasdorf, then  `a static electric charge caused the gas to explode with flashes of flames,` the force said in a statement."


Holy Cow!

Don`t ever accuse me of failing to cover serious subjects, here`s the beef, as they say:

Cows are the most comical creatures in the animal kingdom; they are jumping over the moon, falling through barn roofs or farting up a storm.

These hapless cows not only produced a lot of milk, but they also generated enough methane gas to blow up their dairy farm.

The fire wasn`t big enough to create a gigantic barbeque, but one poor cow was treated for burns.

Cows suffer enough indignities; please don`t add insult to injury by engaging in the sadistic game of cow tipping.

I think I`ve milked enough humor out of this story...
