Weekend Fun: Uncontented Cows??

Do these cows look "miserable" to you?

Since these wackos got the publicity (which is what they want), let's have a little fun with this.
PETA explained its stance in a news release Thursday ... saying "bullpen" is insensitive to cows. The org. said baseball should instead use "arm barn" to avoid the issue.

"Words matter, and baseball 'bullpens' devalue talented players and mock the misery of sensitive animals," PETA exec Tracy Reiman said.

I wonder how PETA came up with "Arm Barn"?  Here are my suggestions if baseball really wants to rename the bullpens: 
  • Pitchers' Patch
  • Curveball Cubbyhole 
  • Baseball Bunch
  • Hanging Curveball Hangout
However, given PETA's perennial lack of a sense of humor, I would have thought they would have proposed "Arm Pit" over Arm Barn. After all, in their world, barns are places where animals are unhappy.

Kansas is the #1 cattle state. We see them all the time. 

Maybe its me, but these cows (I took this photo east of Strong City in June) look pretty content.
