Sister Veronica

An ineluctable ritual of the ticking over of the new year is the scramble by ‘psychics’ to predict a bunch of things that are going to happen in the year ahead. You may have seen Sylvia Browne throwing her hat in the ring recently with a whole bunch of waffly crap like ‘There are going to be some tornadoes somewhere’ and ‘Jennifer Lopez might be pregnant’. Here at The Cow, we believe that if you’re going to do some predictin’ then you ought to stand on your principles for God’s sake, and be specific.

So, seeing as Sister Veronica has been indisputably accurate with her horoscoping talents in this respect, I thought she might like to give the ol’ clairvoyance a shot. OK babe, take it away! Give us five predictions for 2007!

Whoa Nelly!

Sister Veronica has some kooky idea that we need to start getting the barn ready for the Christmas Nativity Scene.

I don’t quite know what she has in mind, but the cows seem to be making an awful lot of noise.*

Warning: NSFW (unless maybe you are a vet).


*The explanatory notes for Brigitte Niedermair’s ‘Holy Cow’ are here. Personally, the artistic statement sounds to me like a big steaming heap of bullshit.

Thanks (I think) to jedimacfan for sending me to this image that will probably stick in my head all day.

Holy Toast

It’s a miracle!

So, I was making toast in The Metropolis and when I took out the perfectly toasted slice, what did I see but an image of the Virgin praying! OMG!!!*

Oh, very well, yes, I admit, first of all I had stamped it with the Holy Toast Bread Stamp from ‘Fred’ so I wasn’t as surprised as all that.

But it does look good in the toast rack.

Now, what to spread on a piece of Virgin toast? Vegemite? Marmalade? Decisions, decisions.


*Sister Veronica is helping me out with a few tips on making The Cow “really hot and ready to pa-a-a-r-t-y!!!

Thanks go to Our Man in New York, Sarah, for the wonderful Holy Toast Stamp.

It has come to my attention that my readership numbers might be handicapped owing to the fact that I am not a cute twenty-year-old chicky-babe with a MySpace profile and nothing to say.

Now this may appear to be something of an obstacle for a forty-eight-year-old bloke who likes to shoot the breeze about the big topics like religion, science, net politics and accurate spelling, but as the Reverend of The Church of the Tetherd Cow I am ever-mindful that The Cow moves in mysterious ways.

Indeed, even as I was despairing that I may never see the likes of three or four hundred MySpace friends filling my life with inane platitudes and incomprehensible teenspeak, there was a knocking at the cloister door, and a destitute creature with no worldly possessions other than the clothes on her back stumbled in from the driving rain. As I towelled the poor wretch dry in front of the abbey fireplace, I knew that the solution to my increasingly barren Comment pages had been sent to me via a Divine Miracle.

Sister Veronica

So, faithful Acowlytes, let me introduce to you Sister Veronica* who will be popping by from time to time in order to help me make an unashamed grab for increased visitor numbers.

You can even write to her, for advice on personal matters or astrology, a field in which she tells me she is an expert.
