POLITICS THROUGH COWS -- A TALIBAN CORPORATION:
You have all the cows in Afghanistan, which is two. You don't milk them
because you cannot touch any creature's private parts. At night when no
one is looking, you milk both of them. Then you kill them and claim a US
bomb blew them up while they were in the hospital.
