Better than Schoolhouse Rock

Cow

But wait little kids..where’s does the milk come from????

Cow Milk

Cow Milk

(yes, that’s real milk)

Happy Cow

My imagination is going haywire just thinking about how they would handle, “Teacher, where do babies come from?”

    I think these pics are udderly wonderful.

    Sooo …. those are surgical cow boobies?? Wow … titanium!

    Remember, learning where babies comes from leads to learning how to change diapers. I keep asking my kids which one will change my diaper when I’m old(er) and incontinent. I’ve yet to get an answer.

    Noooo, you didn’t just make me imagine how the “where babies come from” display would look! I need some bleach now.

    You can repurpose this project for the next question (avoiding the babies issue): Where does steak come from?

    “Hold still, Bossy!” Mooooooo! THUD.

    Thanks for the laugh. As for the birds & bees lesson – ever seen Robin Williams in Patch Adams? I imagine they may handle it something like that. Scary!

    Poor city kids thinking that cows are made of cardboard. Wait, maybe city cows are made of cardboard. That would explain the McDonald’s hamburgers!

    Great post!

  14. “where do babies come from?”

    they are from vietnam, africa or (the latest) potentially india

    I don’t know if that’s better than Schoolhouse Rock, but its pretty damn close. The surgical glove cow udders are a great touch.

  19. wonders — 4/8/08 @ 11:15 am

    Why was he sad? Did the milk not come out? :X

  20. RecipeGirl — 4/8/08 @ 11:19 am

    That’s very cute. When I was a teacher, we went on a field trip to a local dairy farm where they got to see real cow boobies being sucked by machines!

  21. Mary Coleman — 4/8/08 @ 12:46 pm

    Too too funny!

  22. Donald — 4/8/08 @ 6:26 pm

    I used to milk cows in high school. I went to a place called Church Farm School. No, it wasn’t a reformatory school nor a agricultural school, thank you very much. It was a place where I got a great college prep education, even with the alligator on my chest and the penny loafers, along with the experience of raising pigs…oh and milking cows at 3:30 am. A great education for a Philly city boy huh?

    Even with all that education, I often wonder where babies come from, especially my “baby” sisters!

    oops…sorry.

    mods, please remove the grammatically incorrect post the includes the “a agricultural” rather than the “an agricultural”

    thank you. :-)

  25. emiglia — 4/8/08 @ 6:42 pm

    I’ll definitely take that recipe for fra diavolo if you can find it! Thanks!

  26. Mike — 4/9/08 @ 8:10 am

    lol, that’s quite a visual. I just picture them teaching where more food comes from…just pull back a piece of the cow-patterned paper and what have we here? A fresh cheese burger.

  27. sia — 4/9/08 @ 10:30 am

    ROFL… loved taht surgical gloves cow boobies ;)

  28. Emily — 4/9/08 @ 11:50 am

    What a great way to help kids understand where there food comes from. Especially if they live somewhere where there might be be cows around.

  29. courtney — 4/9/08 @ 5:02 pm

    After a hetic few days, this was a delight to read.
