Angelic bovine

If I didn't see yesterday's sticker in the taxi, this is what I would have used for the June CDP theme day. I was reluctant to use it though, for fear of offending dear ol' Louis la Vache. With his Holy Cow Coffee Company, these cows are probably close kin of his, even if they live halfway around the world. Poor Louis might still get hurt, but at least it isn't on a theme day.

The Chophouse is a restaurant in TriNoma mall that specializes in charcoal grilled steaks. Aside from the smiling cow with a halo in its logo, it also has a winged cow standing guard beside its front doors.

My husband and I have never eaten at The Chophouse, and I doubt if we ever will. We find the name quite unappetizing and besides, what hard-hearted person would be willing to eat such sweet, angelic cows?

I love your second shot. Heavenly shot.

The halo and wings certainly provoke my sympathies for the cow!

Look what being angelic gets you.

I'm surprised they haven't all turned on us by now :-)

On behalf of this bovine brethern everywhere, «Louis» thanks you for boycotting this restaurant.

(wink, wink)

Your post didn't hurt «Louis'» feelings - he's avoided the packing house so far...

Holy cow! I wouldn't eat there either. Aren't they afraid the cow might fly away???

Cool post Hilda!

A very good question. Talk about sending mixed messages.

Louis's herd is growing daily. Soon he will branch out from just coffee.

I'm pretty sure Louis is snickering when no one is looking ;D haha. As for me, I think I'll stick to being a vegetarian!

I like the sign. I think Louis will appreciate it too. :)

Lois said...

The cows are cute, but I probably wouldn't eat there either!

Jacob said...

Lois Anne and I would not eat cows, either. What kind of world do we live in that we must eat other living things?

I'm fairly certain there are no angelic bovine residing within the borders of California, and most especially none with a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Hee-hee!

Yes, it's too fresh a reminder of where our hamburger comes from.
