Cows Picket for Udder Relief, Bovine Rights

cows_united.jpg

Apparently having "unalienable rights" can mean more for the common cow than just avoiding aliens. The fine folk at Sustainable Table have launched a campaign called Cows Unite, in which our bovine buddies battle it out for organic sustainability.

Check out the Bovine Bill of Rights, which states, among other things, that cows have the right to dignity and joy. Well, hey. Unlike the citizens of most countries, they clearly know what to ask for. No wonder the aliens are always abducting them.

We wonder what cows themselves would actually have to say about how much personality we project onto them. Would they laugh? Would they demand royalties in grassy knolls? Would they become self-conscious about their spots?

this brings back memories of the viral 'bovine unite' campaign that Eisner Communications did for the Maryland lottery some years back. Same sort of feel, similar name. Not too much exists from the campaign anymore, but:

Say "RIP OFF". There have been at least 3 cow revolution campaigns in the last 3 years. I'm ready for someone to please introduce the cow guillotine... and end this crap.

I liked the idea better two years ago.

Though we are extremely appreciative to get a good mention here, I just wanted to let you know that Organic Valley is actually behind this campaign - they created it. Sustainable Table is one of the groups supporting it. (Note: I'm the Founder/Director of Sustainable Table.)
