In the "Life is Stranger than Fiction" department . . .

Cow Magnets

I especially love the "Educational Moo Magnet Kit." I may have to buy a bunch of those for stocking stuffers. That's just cool.

I'm guessing you didn't grow up around farming.

I was going to say the same thing. I grew up in an area where there were quite a few dairy farms. I had a bunch of these that I used to play with as a kid.

my grandfather was a dairy farmer and growing up we had a local college that used to rent space off of us with 3 cows that had "windows" into their stomaches... you could open the hatch, reach in and grab stuff :barf:

anyway, they used it to study the cow's digestive system and it's 4 stomaches.
