I've heard this at least cow hundred and cow times. I still don't buy it.
Cow can be a number if we use it as a variable. Like cow to the power of chicken equals 42.
It is a free man!
Viva la cowverlución!
It is a free cow
Het is een vrije koe!
No, Patrick, cow is not a number.
I know the episode you are referencing. ;)
Out of curiosity, which show?
Unfortunately, Spongebob Squarepants (Band Geeks is the episode). The original line is something like, "No, Patrick, mayonnaise is not an instrument." I know too much, I must retreat into the shadows.
I wasn't actually referencing anything, just kind of parodying the fact that Patrick from Spongebob is as dumb as a brick...
Figures I would see a reference where there wasn't any to begin with, but at least I got the show right. ;)
My life has been a lie!
This question brought to you by the number J.
This is not really true in Dutch farming. My uncle gave the cows, his girls, a name followed bij a number. So Anna 1, Anna 2. The daughter of a cow had the same name, so he allways knew the bloodline and he could compare their milkproduction.
It's name is Jean Valjean!
Hard to argue with that.
"I am not a number, I am a fre-sian"... :-)
Dit is een waarheid als een koe.
(This is an actual dutch expression... dont ask me to explain it..)
However a monkey is 500 and a pony is 25 (pounds sterling in British slang).
I have heard pony before but never monkey!
(I somehow thought a pony was more...)
I guess I'm up to speed with British slang again ; ) should I ever need it..
When does een have accents? I thought it was when used at the beginning of a sentence.
"een" is "a"/"an", "één" is "one".
Only when you want to stress that there is only one it is één koe.(not two) Got it?
One, two, three, four, cow, six, seven, eight, chicken, ten!
See, I know how to count.
I think you mean you know how to cownt.
Ba dum pshhh
A cow is not a number... Koe-l!
