Today I am reading the paper and come across the article. Of course - cow rustling, not cow wrestling. I do need to get out this little world I live in inside my head.

Laughing at Myself
Yesterday I heard a news report stating that MO was instituting tighter cattle wrestling laws. Now, I grew up in Iowa and am fairly aware of various cattle diversions. Mostly the infamous cow-tipping runs. I have never heard of cow wrestling before. I was sitting in the car listening to the news announcer discussing all of this like it was very common and quite a problem. I couldn't figure it out. All I could picture were people wrestling cows for sport, but it seemed so ridiculous. Then I thought maybe cows were wrestling each other. Now if you have ever hung out with cows, that also seems very impossible. Finally I just let it go as something outside my realm of knowledge.
