    Had a very strange conversation with a work colleague the other night (very worrying the more I think about it). We were discussing very random things, something which we are both very good at. We ended up discussing farm animals and which farm animal we would prefer to be. I can't remember his choice but I chose to be a horse (cue the riding jokes).

    Got me thinking whilst bored on night shift, what farm animal or animals would you be and why??

    Chickens are farm animals, chickens get killed by farmers, cows are farm animals, cows get killed by farmers.
    Badgers get killed by farmers, ergo, they are farm animals. QED.

    At first I thought I would like to be a pig because pigs get to roll around in mud all day. But then i realised i would end up being eaten, which wouldn't be nice.
    So I thought it would be cool to be a duck (would be cool to glide around on a pond all day) - problem is that ducks occassionally get eaten too...
    The thing is, I have always really really wanted to be able to fly...then I realised the ideal animal to be is a swan.
    Swans are elegant and beautiful, and they are completely free and owned by no-one. They just fly in during the summer, then fly off somewhere hot with all of their swan friends during the winter :)

    Cow - you get to stay inside during the winter, get to go out in the summer. You get fed twice a day and get to eat in between.

    actually i think all swans are owned by the queen. Thats why people never eat them cause its against ye olde law and it classes as treason or sommat (ive heard that somewhere)

    yeah thats true- a year or two ago some tramps were eating them in St.James park and were arrested....shame they dont do hangings anymore eh? :cool:

    Yup sounds good to me.....

    But think i'd rather be a butterfly- i know its not strictly a farm animal but i can be found in the farm meadows where the wild flowers grow in the ones they leave for a year ;)

    that way i can be a crawly catterpilla and fly and be beautiful....
    (Que Catterpilla from a bugs life....." one day i will be a beeewtiful Butterfly ")

    Spotted a slight flaw in your thinking processes there BMB. Badgers also get killed by road vehicles, doesn't mean that badgers are pedestrians, cyclists or other motorists. However, a badger on a pushbike appeals to my sense of humour.

    I have however seen a whole family of badgers on a canal boat so anything's possible!!!!!

    Actually you can't get much more pedestrian than a badger.
    Eat hot logic, cat...:clap:

    Actually you can!!! A pedestrian is by definition more pedestrian than a badger and I'm sure a three toed sloth would have something to say about a badger shaped interloper trying to claim the crown of being the slowest thing in these here parts. All three 'animals' named above, do however have one thing in common THEY ARE NOT FARM ANIMALS!!!!

    And giraffes are?! Anyway, when was the last time you saw a three toed sloth in Wem apart from when Jessop-Smythe is visiting?
