That's one way to do it

This isn't the first time I've heard of farm animals being used to further a romance.  No, it's not what you think.

Chris Gospel of Strichen, Aberdeenshire, got down on one knee in a field to ask for Eilidh Fraser's hand in marriage.

But the 30-year-old did not need to pop the question, as he enlisted the help of Curlytop the cow by writing "will you marry me?" on the animal's body.

Mr Gospel said: "She was a star. The writing was on the side and as were were walking up she was facing us.

"Eilidh could see something written on the side but not what it was. Curlytop came up to us and then turned.

"By the time Eilidh read it I was down on one knee and proposed."

The microbiologist said yes and a picture was posted on social media, with Curlytop's message in the background.

. . .

Mr Gospel said Curlytop would get an invite to the wedding, but was unsure whether it would be accepted.

He added: "She's still not forgiven me for writing on her."

There's more at the link, including a picture of the cow in question (literally).

The jokes write themselves, don't they?
  • Good thing he wrote it on a cow.  That way, she knew his proposal was no bull!
  • What if she'd slapped him for proposing in that way?  Would that have been dis-udderly conduct?
  • It must have been a moo-ving experience.

This will get milked for all it's worth.

I would say something about the udder silliness of it, but that speaks for itself.

Did he ask the question in a pasture or barn? In a barn she could have stalled him.

So, you finally asked the old cow the big question, eh Chris?
No, no, no! How many times do I have to say this? Eilidh is my girlfriend. Curlytop is the old cow.

Dairy ask if he had any plans in case she said no?

Very Mooving.

You might be a redneck if...

Good thing she said yes, otherwise it would have been an udder catastrophe.

I think it was quite a bovine gesture. He really set the moo-d. Do you think the wedding will be a leather and lace affair? One would have to chew the cud before deciding. Hopefully they aren't going to steak their future on these puns. Some are the cream of the crop, while others are not rib tickling good but more like a punch in the brisket and rather cheesy. Maybe they could have the ceremony in Jersey in a cottage. Blow the horn and ring the bell and maybe we can avoid a stampede.
