According to my dictionary, the word "Uncle" has French roots.... so I guess that "Uncle Sam" should find a new moniker.....

How many French does it take to defend Paris?

That is why the cows that laugh, Les Vaches qui Rirent, laugh. They know they have a secret weapon, the dreaded day-old baguettes, and an invincible leader, the rouged bull. CIA have never managed to get a picture, but Walt Disney, on the FBI payroll, did catch some secretly-shot footage of their cousins the hippopotami, in his Fantasia.

You forget, the pistol packing lawman was headed for Switzerland and Italy, where he would most certainly be threatened by rogue cows and irritable nonnas alike. I still say a large provolone would surely provide the needed security against these formidable attackers, as well as a hearty snack.

Buon Appetito!

Ok, now I get it. The rouge cows are Commies! No doubt affiliated with the Red Brigade and the Khmer Rouge. And in their study groups they read Chairman Moooo's Little Red Book.

(I'm much better at this after my second cup of coffee.)

Wait, wait, that should've been "Cowmer Rouge". Damn. I'm not as awake as I thought I was.

Actually "rouge cows" are a marketing ploy of the French cosmetic industry and should be boycotted.

One misplaced 'g' and things get out of hand. Ok, I typo'd. It was 1am.

Now I've got the Beef Council's lawyers after me for defamation. Some sort of image thing. The Dairy Farmers Association is up in arms as the cows strike over the rogue image. Got milk? Too late! Apparently 'rogue' is no longer PC. Many cows came from the wrong side of the pasture and were not exposed to the necessary education on the proper use of baked goods. It's not their fault. Really.

And then there's the two tie-dyed PETA people camped out on the front lawn, protesting the testing of cosmetics on animals. Kumbaya all you want, I'm getting tired of mowing around you!

So, formally, I ask for a pardon and issue a retraction on the matter of cows, where it relates to rouge-ness.

Remember, to err is human. To forgive, bovine.

Exactly so! Les Vaches Rouges have been in operation for many years. As Ben Haines will confirm, they have strong links with the London Underground.

Clifton, you may have made the original typo, but you were followed (on the original thread) by a host of lemmings who copied your innovative spelling. I'm sorry you're having so much trouble, but perhaps you can sell the story rights for a made-for-tv mooovie. I'm sure fodorites will help come up with a title.

Sylvia, I think you are on to something. Les Vaches Rouges are probably responsible for some of the more errant variations in the Mornington Crescent rules, dontcha think? Perhaps they have just mis-read the rule book?

Is a rouged cow any relation to a mascared pig?

Clifton, It is udderly unfair that so many organizations seem to have a beef with you over your minor typo. Perhaps they will be cowed if you point your lawnmooer in their direction. In any case, I hope they don't milk you for all you have, and that they mooove on soon! Good luck!

There once was a cow that was rouge
And also exceedingly huge
While usually lazy
One day it went crazy
Scaring all of the people in Brugge

There was once a pistol-packing rouge cow
That said "I'm going to Switzerland now
I want to find that tourist
That was by Fodorites dissed
And kiss him 24/7, and how!"

Some people are just afraid of any cow that thinks differently than they do.

Relax, go to the dreaded rouge pasture land, and you will see that they are no different than you. A lot can be learned from one who quietly chews his cud while others stay home in their pens and moo away for no apparent benefit.

Then one foggy Christmas eve, Santa came to say:

"Rudolph with your nose so rouge, won't you help me guide my luge?"
