On Friday, on my way to lunch I passed a cow who was scratching her nose, and using her back right hoof to do so. Whilst standing up. I was very impressed!

Then at lunch I had a buffalo burger. It tasted almost exactly the same as a hamburger.

That sounds almost physically impossible. Did you get a picture for Photo du Jour?

No! I was driving at the time. What a shame. You'll just have to take my word for it.

The farm in question is right in Pitman, and I love checking out the animals on the way to work. I wish there were a convenient place to park nearby, but it's right on a road, and I would feel too self-conscious, I think, to go up to the fence and take pictures.

I've only had buffalo once, and it was at a super nice restaurant, but it was SO INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL AND YUMMY! I wish it wasn't so expensive in the supermarket.

Are you talking, like, for REAL buffalo? Like, chopped-off bison?

Yes, bison. Does that sound unbelievable or something? They're just like cows, only bigger and hairier.

I coulda sworn that bison was NOT the same thing as buffalo (even though at the diner, they used both terms). So I just looked it up, and I ate bison. Not buffalo. But it was called a buffalo burger. Because the laypeople, they don't care about distinctions such as these.

You should try an actual buffalo steak. They taste much the same as steak, but better.

Yeah, I wasn't expecting to be able to taste much of a difference in ground meat form. But it was only a dollah more, and so much less fat and whatnot!
