As a full time consumer of titillating internet pictures, there have been a few over the years that have really stuck in my mind. One of these is a meme where the starring role is played by a cow.
In this famous image, the creature has walked out ankle deep into the ocean surf. She is staring pensively into the middle distance. It’s beautiful, it’s evocative, and it’s plain evidence that the undisputed queen of the farm animals deserves more attention when it comes to memes.
While they might not be the sharpest tools in the shed, there’s no denying that cows are both cute and consistently amusing. Sorry to disappoint the meat lovers, but you’re not likely to find many steak jokes on this list. Instead, we’re here to celebrate all things weird, wholesome, and somewhere in between relating to cow memes. They need more time in the spotlight.
