  1. I think the video is funny, especially the milker’s sentimental attachment to the cow. But what doesn’t make sense about the Texas law? In other states, is it legal to take eggs from other people’s chickens? Apples from other people’s trees? I live next to a cornfield. I didn’t realize that I could be eating that corn instead of paying 3 for $1 at the grocery store.

    I’m with Christine; what’s the problem with that law?

    I thought that given how urgently the police sped to the scene, the video was going to go in a creepier direction, like the police shooting the cow-milker but not fearing an excessive force lawsuit because there were no lawyers. (Of course, the direction they went in — the milker seeming emotionally attached to the cow — is arguably creepier.)
