    Much of it so bizarre, it defies explanation.  However, with regard to the "milking" quote, it has been reported that the prions that cause mad cow disease have been found in the milk of cows with the disease. So, it would be relevant that the cow was milking, if someone was inclined to really monitor the food supply.

    Speak the truth, but ride a fast horse.

      I'll wager that they'll say something along these lines: "There's no compelling evidence that BSE can pass through milk and endanger consumers."

      It's a line reminiscent of when those same people used to say there's no evidence that BSE is in the U.S. Those people now say in their Most Reassuring Tones that there's only a "low prevalence" of BSE here.
