Let This Rube Goldberg Machine Show You How Cows Eat And Poop

Have a good weekend!

Hi, it’s late on a Friday, it’s raining and horrible in the northeast and I’m drinking whiskey (Ed. note: Dan, didn’t I fire you already?) and here’s, like, the best thing I’ve seen all week. It’s a Rube Goldberg machine, only it’s wooden (cool!) and it’s modelled after a cow’s gastrointestinal system, which is complicated and not very much like our own, what with the chewing of cud and the several stomachs and all.

Make sure to stick around until it poops.
