The photographer thinks they will get the perfect shot, but it’s really the world’s largest cow that will get the last laugh. Or not the last laugh, just a laugh.
Of course, you’re a smart cookie, so you see that the cow isn’t that big – our old friend forced perspective is here for some good fun. Otherwise, you’d be able to make a lot of ice cream, thanks to Bessie. Maybe it’s a tiny photographer? Also a good option.
It Could Have Been a Lot Worse
It's a little bird, winging its way across the blue, on its way to a tree branch or a bird feeder or maybe a high power line to talk to some friends.
Look closer, though, and you'll discover that it's not a bird at all – it's a crack in a windshield. Amazingly, a rock got kicked up from a wheel and hit the windshield in a one-in-a-million (maybe billion or trillion) way. We wouldn't recommend trying to recreate this – for every dent that gives you something close to this, you'll get a thousand ugly marks that you'll hate.
We were honestly pretty confused when we saw this picture for the first time, but here's the explanation: during the winter, there was a flood. It's been known to happen, even during cold temperatures. The water rose, froze, and snow fell, freezing in place.
Then the water receded to normal levels, leaving the trees next to the lake with little bits of flat ice frozen. It's probably happened plenty of times all over the place, but it's certainly rare. So if you see it, take a picture and amaze your friends.
Colonel the cow stands at a staggering six feet, five inches tall. That's tall for a human! He weighs a ridiculous thirty-five hundred pounds. The owners of Colonel realized that he was something special and decided to keep him around as a pet.
His incredible size barely beats out the previous record holder for the world's giant cow, Old Ben, who died more than a hundred years ago and rose to six feet, four inches. They can't get any milk out of him, but they're going to get something that might be even more useful to their farm – fame.
Not Exactly Native
No, you aren't seeing the last of the Mohicans here – this is just good timing and the right positioning. While the line of Vitamin Water bottles does look like it would work as a classic, vibrant headdress, it's a two-dimensional image. Also, the photo's subject doesn't look like he fits the bill of a war chief.
But who knows, maybe he has some wild stories from Korea or something like that. The kind of stories that will put your hair on end. Today he might be bowling, but he was leading the charge back in the day.
