Step. Back. From. the. Cow.
Much hilarity today when giving a tour of our dairy–I was explaining our free stall system and how we manage milking. Whilst gesturing at the cows’ bedding, one stuck her tongue out right into my armpit.
This left me with my arm up in the air, a big trail of drool running down my side, and about 9 completely convulsed undergraduates.
I love my job. :D

Also, a link that explains why cows commonly stick their tongue up their noses. It’s not just because they can.
