Have you ever gone cow-tipping?

This seems to be a fairly common story from people (and of course, the closer to country land you are, the more often it's told. Well, being a Miami-native, I've even heard it from someone.

So, have you gone cow-tipping or know someone who says they have? Well, according to this study, you (or your friends) are lying. Unless you and four more friends all ganged up on one cow.

Just spotted this over at Fark, and wanted to share. Hope it's not a repeat thread.

As a farm boy, I think it's all an urban legend. Anytime we tried to sneak up on a cow in the middle of the night, the cow would always wake up before we could get near it. Then said cow would go lumbering off into the darkness.

Guess we weren't very ninja-like in our cow sneakings.

We had the same problem. Whenever we got close, the cow would just wander off, probably pissed that we disturbed it. The only thing we ever managed to accomplish was getting our shoes caked in cow shit.

"Cow tipping" is like "snipe hunting". It's something you try to get someone else to do.

Now, "bull dragging" is something else!

Some things we really did when bored out in the country: Wade around in the pond to get leeches we could freak out those rich kids with.

Put snakes in mailboxes

Leave burning bags of dog s**t on the doorstep when "****** knocking" (hey! that is what it was called at the time, I have no idea what it's called now.)

Build forts out of hay bales.

Chase turkeys around, just to hear the noise they make.

Accidentaly set the oil-top road on fire.

Why was that called......(substitute a less polite word for negro here) knocking? I never understood that...was this a common prank performed by black people at some point in history? Perhaps shenanigans played against the massa?

Don't think I've heard of bull dragging...certainly never did the leeches thingy...those things creep me out! Never did anything on your Danger List (TM) except for the knock-n-run (no shit was used though). Oh yeah....what's snipe hunting?

You guys just suck at cow tipping. It's all about leverage and quickness. If you sneak, they just wake up and wander off.

10% for a standard cow; 15% for an exceptional cow.

You need a group, you need an incline, it can be done. It isn't worth it, but it can be done. I would guess that the success rate is around 4%

I heard that cows are like sharks. If they go to sleep, they stop breathing, so they never sleep.

The greatest land predators, and God gave them blunt teeth. Wotta bitch.

I was just going to say "did kvrdave just suggest how to tip a cow and NOT include gunning it down?"

Nice cow tipping vehicle!

I'd like to get a 4% raise.

I think "blank" knocking was something done to bug "blanks". It's definately a white kid sport.

My late sister-in-law's friends and family all swore they have done it. That was the first I ever heard of it. I believe them, they were hillbilly enough to do it.

Case in point: Her brother had a trailer, basically on the side of a mountain. When you did #2 in the bathroom, you couldn't throw the paper in the toilet (because of a problem with his septic system). You had to throw it in a trash can.

I guess that makes sense Mrs. Danger...I've decided to call it "person of color" knocking. I'm trying to think of an even more PC name for it.
