Had to laugh at this one, but wouldn't it be, "Tails from the Freezer"? :-D

I've never herd of anything so ridiculous. How dairy thoughtless of the Forest Service not to consider how this would affect all of us.

I knew of a lady from Chicago, once... Kate O'Leary... if this were her barn, and those were her cows... well, this problem would have taken care of itself.

I personally gristle at the idea of tearing down historic architecture.

Yeh, I have a T-bone to pick also. Wouldn't a cattle guard work just fine, or some posts spaced close together, or some other mechanism work just fine? Guess they don't see this rib-eye to rib-eye with us.

After taking stock of everything I have herd I am persueded that they have really butchered this. Clearly a cattle guard to skirt the cabin's patty-o would remeatiate the situation in a New York minute.

Udderly ridiculous. The policowly correct thing to do would be to recycle the roof and moove the wood elsewhere.
