    Who's the most famous cow in the world?

    Of course, I think it's my Harvest Moon cow. But his fame might be rivaled by whatever cow it was that burned down Chicago. That dude is probably the most powerful cow of all time.

    Was Mr. Ed a cow? He was a brown cow, right?

    Oh no... I love it.



    Edit: Yahoo answer: The most famous is the 'cow with no name'

    I would imagine that in continental Europe the most famous cow is probably the Milka Cow. She's a big brand ambassador for Milka chocolate, and they've been using her for decades. Another contender would be the Laughing Cow that does cheeses.

    Elsie. Or Mrs. O'Leary's cow. Or that one on the Laughing Cow cheese maybe.

    The snide answer, circa 1934: Eleanor Roosevelt.

    The Borden's cow, Elsie, is relatively famous. For a cow.

    Is this athlete-obsessed culture, everyone knows the cow that jumped over the moon.

    Ermintrude from the Magic Roundabout. The only cow I can think of to have a starring role in an international film release. Possibly the only pink cow in existence.

    You win something unspecified if you can guess Rimbo's answer. (Bonus points if you know the origin of the name!)

    I like these posts because they're kind of like an RSS feed for the podcast.

    I don't know who the most famous cow is, but my favorite cow is Belle from Animal Crossing. She used to call me Twinkles. We wore matching shirts and I mailed her an armoire. Then I didn't play for a week because MGS2 came out and she moved to another town. I learned a hard lesson that day, my friends.

    It may be a plain old black-and-white Holstein, but it's still the most famous cow in music history.

    I agree. Elsie, despite being a brown cow (which, these days, who wants a brown cow?), is probably the most famous -- at least, among older Americans.

    Ironically, the cow's name wasn't actually Elsie -- it was "You'll Do Lobelia". More info here, including the interesting tidbit that she was hooked up to a "rotolactor" -- which sounds like an awful, awful experience.

    Fine, then. But you can't go around arbitrarily reassigning bovine genders to suit your petty agenda. It's a crime against nature!

    Also, how about an honorable mention for Frank Zappa's talking cow?

    I couldn't find a decent scan of this one. I don't think the cows are supposed to be so oddly grey.
