The jumping cow stories remined me of when we headed back home after vising my sister at college in Philadelphia. Somewhere around Mid New Jersey there was a HUGE traffic snarl that stopped everyone. This was probably simply a moving traffic thing. However as I looked out the window into a culvert by the roadside (next to what I think was a farm), I could not help but note that on OUR side of the fence was a seriously big goat or sheep, of a seriously old type breed (one of those shaggy kinds with the huge pointy horns that one associates with Satanic symbols) casually strolling up towards the road.
