Cattle Cutting Cheese Catastrophe

Cattle cutting cheese? What's up with that? Most living creatures phoot. Why is that newsworthy? Just heard that cattle phooting is the second largest contributor to global warming.  Higher then transportation. It's inconceivable!

Massive numbers of 'em stockpiled. Force fed corn or soy. Hard to digest. Stomachs made for grass, so there's massive upset. Creating voluminous gas. Now this isn't just any phoot. It's methane. It's flammable. More toxic then CO2. And being released in incredible quantities. Ever driven by a stockyard? It's a smelly mess for miles.

The average American eats half a pound of meat a day. Twice as much as USDA recommends. So meat producers pack 'em in even more. 10,000,000,000 animals a year to feed our need. Which means more and more stinkin' phoots pollutin' the air. It's a Cattle Cutting Cheese Catastrophe.
