People are now hugging cows to get through Covid-19

Oct 13th

Well this is awfully strange. A new wellness trend out of the Netherlands has people cuddling cows as a way to cope with the stress brought on by Covid-19.

No, seriously, this is real. I'm not kidding:

The new trend, called "koe knuffelen" in Dutch (which translates to "cow hugging") has actually been popular in the Netherlands for more than ten years. MORE THAN TEN YEARS! Again, not joking at all here.

The process begins when the cow hugger takes a tour of the farm to see what he or she is getting themself into. Then, oh man, is this even real life?... Then the cow hugger lays down with a cow for TWO TO THREE HOURS. So strange.

Oh wait, not weird enough for you yet? Here we go.

"Giving the animal a backrub, reclining against them, or even getting licked is all part of the therapeutic encounter."

Alright, that's enough.

Somebody call up AOC or any one of the Green New Dealers and have them put an end to this, stat.
