Americans will do anything to avoid using the metric system, huh?Grandpa used to describe the size of everything in terms of a calf. For instance, if he was describing a large dog, he would say it was "about as big as a calf." Or about a car, he would say it "could seat for calves comfortably." (Oh, that was another thing: how many calves could ride in something.)
One time he was talking about a calf he had, and I asked him how big it was. He said it was "about three-quarters as big as a calf."
Sometimes Grandpa would tell time by calves. If you asked him how long something would take, he'd say "About as long as it takes a calf to drive over here." - Jack Handey
I used to work in a materials testing lab where we used both metric and Imperial measurements, but it wasn't until I got into a umm...different...business in the '80s that I learned there were 28 grams to an ounce.If it weren’t for drugs Americans would know nothing about the metric system.
Im guessing the cow had either chicken nuggets or a Fish Filet with F.F.Mooooo! Seriously! This person drove through McD's with three calves in the back seat!
