Tipping cows

I heard a silly discussion on the radio (Ken Schram…sigh) this morning about a bunch of poeple in the blogsphere up in arms about tipping baristas at Starbucks.  Inane.

While I was listening to this I was buying my latte at Jitters (I hate Starbucks; their coffee is too boring; they are the McDonalds of coffee) I had to laugh. The tip cup had a little sign on it:

Tipping: Good for us, bad for the cows.

And, yes, I tipped the barista.

    And though we *never* did this in Texas, I heard the folks up in Oklahoma used to go tipping as football practice… Make sure the bulls are in a seperate pasture, and it ain’t "breedin’ time" if you ever do this…B-)
