Last year, I picked a few images from Adobe Stock to use to answer questions on the forum. I spent some time making my decisions, because people are sometimes so stressed by the time they get to us that I wanted to lighten the mood. When I get a clipping path question in InDesign, I use this cow. I have the clipping mask ready to go and I've used him repeatedly. I even think he ended up in one of my "Something for the Weekend" contributions. In short, I am very fond of this particular cow.
Fast forward to this week, and to Republican congressman Devin Nunes' lawsuit against Twitter and a few specific parody accounts. One is @DevinMom and another is @DevinCow. Of course I checked out (and maybe followed) the cow account.
I had no idea I was using Devin Nunes' own cow for my clipping path answers. I'm glad the cow is finally receiving the fame he deserves—because he is adorable— but I guess it's time to look for a new clipping path image.
I have a beautie from the French Alps if you're interested.
Oh, no, you have to keep it! We haven't even started to churn out dairy puns!
I was udderly dismayed to learn that I am going to have to find a new clipping path image.
Don’t be hasty. Take stock of the situation first. If you stop worrying, you might even find it amoosing.
That's Mooo-sic to my ears, Jane-e!
If you can't find another cow, a cattle work just fine.
I assume the cow feels like he has been T-boned
Those are the worst puns I have ever herd.
How dairy you say such a thing?
No, it's pasture bedtime!
Ponytail is right — we can be butter than this!
I think we have milked this enough
Really? No more cowments?
hay, I'm still thinking !
I hope those nice cows keep making milk, cause they don't know what's at steak.
No, no more cowments, Barb, we can put this out to pasture.
no sense grassing about it, cause it cud be worse
This thread has caught the attention of mainstream businesses around the world.
Finely chopped hay has led to a new scientifically proven process called CUD-A Acceleration.
A forum called 'creative cow' has been created.
I might as well admit it...
years ago ( maybe 30 ? ) I played acoustic guitar and used to make up songs. Usually they would never be completed... like this one... It doesn't even have a TITLE.
The idea is that some cattle ( not milk cows) in some setting that fits the image of the old west cattle ranchers …
Like it's a cowboy song. Maybe they would sing it quietly while working on their quarter horses around the herd, etc.
Being from NYC I imagined the cows have to move from pasture to pasture ( hence the fights with sheep people on the open range ( BLM land basically )).
I got one verse and one chorus... and ran out of steam.. maybe you can help me finish it finally, after all these years ??
It's a simple G chord ( hammer 3rd string in beat with a basic cowboy beat )..progression.
Well we gotta get you moving
You'll like where you end up going
then starts various verses..
It's slow 4/4 beat and meant to soothe the cows, but make them move … to next pasture.
any suggestions welcome.
Well we gotta get you moving
change to "Well we gotta get you doggies moving "
hehe.. almost time to get out guitar ...
i think we need a youtube | vimeo clip to really understand what this song sounds like mate
