Knickers’ burps could cause real coo-tastrophe
Glad to hear that Knickers, a giant Holstein-Friesian steer, standing at an astonishing 6ft 4in tall and weighing in at a scales-bursting 1.4 tonnes will now spend the rest of his days chewing the cud.
His farmer was told to “burger off” by an abattoir in Western Australia as Knickers was too big to be processed, which has delighted millions of animal lovers and vegetarians around the world.
Not sure how the residents of South Queensland, who had to flee catastrophic bush fires and devastating flash floods this week will feel about his lucky reprieve, after climatologists said the methane produced by the burps and parps of livestock like Knickers is the greatest cause of greenhouse gases and largely responsible for the increase in global warming.
Given the size of Knickers, one eruption from him could probably blow Australia off the map!
