ME: Whaddya mean? That's a cow!
HUMAN: No - it's a bull.
ME: Looks like a cow to me. How do you know it's a bull and not a cow?
HUMAN: Because bulls have, uh, bully sticks and cows don't.
Hearing that just totally confused me. I've eaten lots of bullysticks and can't imagine how those things on the bull's head could be made into bullystick. So, I gave my friend Buford a shout. He's the official taster for Buford's Bullies and I'm pretty sure that makes him an expert.
Here's what Buford had to say:
Wow. That's cool that you got to see a Bully Stick in it's raw stage, except I think you are a little confused. Although they do make a dog treat out of deer horns (otherwise known as antlers), the Bully Stick on the bull is poking out of his belly kinda. Just don't run up to a bull and try to taste it cause I think the bull would get REALLYSUPERCRAZY MAD!!!!!!!!!!! (and probably try to hit you with those things on his head, which would hurt too).
I still don't understand why I'm not allowed to chase the bulls. But at least now I know where bullysticks come from. And how to tell the bulls from the cows so I don't get in any more trouble.

Today the Flat me takes Chicago!! I met the natives, saw some really cool sights and hung out in the snow with my new Chi-town friends Klaus & Natty.
(the real me never knew there was so much snow out there!)
