    Uh … but wouldn’t the magnets damage the cows’ digestive system?

    I hope a hawk gets that pigeon.

    No – the magnets are powerful, rare earth magnets that do not react with stomach digestive juices and acids. This is actually pretty neat as cows are always picking up the odd bits of wire and other small, iron and steel objects. The metals eventually are dissolved by their stomach acids. The magnets keep the metal from moving on down and snarking up the plumbing until they are dissolved.

    Well congratulations all! We’ve solved the mystery of how beef gets rich in iron.

    The pigeon man would like to thank Wal-Mart for the opportunity.

    Pigeons and Pot-Bellied pigs make the best pets. You can always eat them when you’re tired of them.

    John Lawton took only about two hours, not two days, to complete his celebration. Also, I hope he is as good at math and logic as he is at flying. (Click the link, he’s received awards.) He would only have to make 45 figure eights to cross the border 90 times.

    Knowing the power of bureaucrats, maybe it was 2 hours to do the flying and 2 days to do the resulting paper work?

    Anyone dumb enuff to pay $400,000 for a pigeon should have it eaten by a hawk.

    @bbwoof

    Win enough pigeon races, and you would recoup your initial investment. Not essentially different from paying big money for a horse.

    People in our area were once paying hundreds for pot belly pigs. A year later: Ads: Free to good home, pot belly pig!
