Most of you probably thought that we were done with Cow Facts two years ago. Or, at least, you were hoping we were.
Well, sadly for some of you, this is clearly not the case…
Not only is Cow Facts back in the saddle, it now qualifies (according to my own arbitrary rules for category qualification – the “Bill Kammerer Rules For Category Qualification”) as it’s own category – that’s right! If you search by category and input the words “Cow Facts”, you will be brought to a page that has all of the episodes of this timeless masterpiece gathered in one place…
Also, you will notice that this is part “Four” (4) of a trilogy. Now, we all know that a trilogy is made up of exactly three (3) parts. So why is there a part “Four” (4)? *
* Lest you think that I am some sort of mathematical moron, just let me say that there are three kinds of people in the world:
- The ones who can do math and
- The ones who can’t.
There is actually a very good reason for that, and I’m going to make it up right here on the spot so that you understand what that reason is.
A one (1) part trilogy would not be a “oneilgy” (though you might refer to it as a “monology”, I guess) because it only has one (1) part and needs no further titular explanation.
A two (2) part trilogy would be referred to as a “dualogy”.
Then, of course, we come to “trilogy”, a three (3) part series.
Then we come to where we would be now if I were going to be here – Quadrilogy – a set of four (4) episodes and then on to five (5) or “pentology”..
If I’m going to knock out four of these things, it stands to reason that I might just keep going on ad nauseam (refer to my biography) until way past the time that the cows come home, so to speak…
I can go on to Part Five (5) and blow through that with no problem, but Six (6) is where I draw the line...
Six (6) would be a “Sexology”, and I’m just not that kind of writer.
Therefor, if I do 137 parts to Cow Facts, it will remain a ‘Trilogy”.
End of major notice…
A Cow By Any Other Name
News flash!!! I have a new Cow Fact to report!
Cows smell bad. Really bad.
But I’m hungry now, and I don’t want to ruin my meager dinner thinking about that, so you’re going to have to wait to read about it…

Also, two could be a Biology. One of my favorites. Hey, I like Cows.
Good point Ted.. I like cows, too, but I wouldn’t want to smell like one.. (You’d tell me if I smelled like one, wouldn’t you?)
