# Two cows

"You have two cows" is the beginning phrase for a series of political joke definitions. "You have two cows" jokes originated as a parody of typical "Economics 101" examples featuring a farmer in a moneyless society, using his cattle and produce to trade with his neighbors. The examples ran along the lines of "You have two cows; you want chickens; you set out to find another farmer who has chickens and wants a cow, etc." They were meant to show the limitations of the barter system, leading to the eventual introduction of currency and money. The "two cows" parodies however, place the cow-owner in a fully-fledged economic system where cows are used as a metaphor for all currency, capital, means of production, etc. The intent is often to point out flaws and absurdities in those systems.

See the Wikipedia entry on You have two cows for additional detail.

The following list of these "two cows" jokes was assembled from over 20 different versions found on the internet. Some of these jokes may not have been published and may have been contributed by one or more members of the the Wikifoundation community.

You again have to fill out forms for the missing cow and for the lost milk. You are then paid to sit on your bum and never put in a decent day's work again.

Almost everyone has milk since it is mass produced and cheap. The public and the other cow owners call you selfish and place a 50 percent tax on milk profits. You lose your motivation and milk outputs plummet. You sell your two cows and purchase two crippled cows that can't produce any milk. The public calls you couragous and supports you with government subsidies. Nobody can afford milk.

9. You have two cows. They misunderestimate you.

## E

Intern:
You have two cows. Or rather, your boss has two cows and you are responsible for the day-to-day feeding, maintenance and upkeep of them — in addition to the proper filing and distribution of their milk and other by-products while your boss takes credit for your accomplishments. However, you are still able to retain credit for any foul-ups regarding the cows; be they yours, your boss’, or the cows’. Although you will start this endeavor with great enthusiasm, you will slowly come to realize that you are actually gaining very little benefit from this arrangement other than padding your résumé, and your enthusiasm will concurrently wane in proportion to this process of realization. Eventually, before your designated date of departure from this slavish form of employment, you will begin to seek to undermine the cow-boss relationship that you originally sought so vehemently to promote.

1. You have two cows. The government "rescues" them, waits several decades, and gives them back to you.

Judaism:
You have two cows. You neighbor, having no cows, claims that the cows are his. The king decrees that the group of cows shall be cloven in two, each man recieving one cow.

Judicial system:
You have two cows. Somebody takes them away from you. You spend over twenty years in courts trying to convict the man of stealing your cows.

You later commit suicide and forty years later the Supreme court decides the cows could have been yours and allow two cows born of those cows to your family. The cows die of disease days later.

## K

## L

Labor Unionism:
You have two cows. They band together with everyone else's cows to form the Cow Peoples' Union, or CPU. They demand higher wages and shorter working hours. You respond by increasing wages and working hours. As your house burns and your windows are smashed in, you realize that your life depends on these cows, and their happiness is part of your survival. You decide to tell that to God.

1. You have two cows. You give away one cow and get the government to give you a new cow. Then you give them both away.

3. You have two cows. You let them do what they want.
4. You have two cows. To hell with everybody else!
5. You have two cows. A large succession of purely ad hominem attacks are made against your cows by vested plundering socialist interests and various other useful idiots created by the public school system. Your cows are then stoned to death by a mob who declares the cows to be "apologists" for capital. Strawman attacks accuse you of being a monopolistic fascist. Amidst this nonsense, you flee to a foreign country, while your home country commits economic suicide and then despairingly falls into dictatorship. You then laugh, and declare the death of your two cows to be worth the price of admission for a front seat ticket to the whole show.
6. You have two cows, but you keep trying to milk a pig, since the fact that the pig can't be milked, doesn't understand what milk or cows is, and has no interest in the farm as a whole, are sure indications that it will produce the best milk.
7. You have two cows. You see the cows function best when they are not treated like they are worthless and told they must produce their own milk if they are to survive in this world. The government steals them from you for trying to homeschool them and they are raised in public schools. The cows lose all confidence in themselves and learn how to apply for financial aid. They never produce a drop of their own milk.

You have two cows. Once you have installed them, both produce milk 24 hours a day, every day. The tail of one of the cows doesn't work, and the other one walks backwards. You could fix this yourself, but you don't have time - since they are free, you kill them both and get new ones each month, hoping to get normal cows. You never do, but the amount of milk produced increases each time. You are also allowed to distribute cows.

Mathematics #5:
You have two cows. You leave the proof of this as an exercise to the reader.

Mathematics (Invalid proofs):
Given that you have two cows, infinitely many cows exist.
First, observe that at least one cow (c0) exists. Let $\mathbb{C}$ be defined as the set of all cows and define $\mathbb{F} \subseteq \mathbb{C}$ to be the set of all cows in your farm. Define the predicate $E(n) = \left( \left|\mathbb{F}\right| \ge n \right)$. Noting that n is an ordinal number, that is, $\mathbb{F} = \left\{ 1st\ cow,\ 2nd\ cow,\ 3rd\ cow,\ \ldots \right\}$, the second cow cannot exist independently of the first cow, i.e. E(n + 1) iff E(n).
Consider the case when n = 0. Since c0 exists, E(n) = E(0) is true. Similarly, it is given that c1 exists, and so E(n + 1) = E(1) is also true. Therefore, $E(n) \Rightarrow E(n + 1)$.
Therefore $\forall n \left\{ n \in \mathbb{Z}_0^{+} : E(n) \right\} \Longrightarrow \mathbb{C} \supseteq \mathbb{F} \equiv \mathbb{Z}_0^{+} \Longrightarrow \left|\mathbb{C}\right| = \aleph_0$ . Q.E.D.
(The flaw: $E(n) \Rightarrow E(n + 1)$ works for n = 0 only because E(0) and E(1) are both true by assumption. If n > 0, we only have $E(n + 1) \Rightarrow E(n)$. It's a good thing that it fails, too, because if it worked, "You are holding two apples in your hand." would imply "You are holding an infinite number of apples in your hand.", which would not bode well for your continued survival.)

Nuclear fission:
You have two cows. You smash some milk into one and it splits into two smaller cows and many gallons of milk. The new milk causes the other original cow to itself split into two smaller cows, giving you much more milk than you started with. You go to look for a field of cows to split so that you can provide more milk for everyone else just so long as you don't make too much milk, which would be dangerous.

Nuclear fusion:
You have two cows. You smash them into each other with so much force that they are transformed into many gallons of milk and a bull.

Olympics-ism:
You have two cows, one American, one Chinese. With the help of trilling violins and state of the art montage photography, John Tesh narrates the moving tale of how the American cow overcame the agony of growing up in a suburb with (gasp) divorced parents, then mentions in passing that the Chinese cow was beaten every day by a tyrannical farmer and watched its parents butchered before its eyes. The American cow wins the competition, severely spraining an udder in a gritty performance, and gets a multi-million dollar contract to endorse Wheaties. The Chinese cow is led out of the arena and shot by Chinese government officials, though no one ever hears about it. McDonald's buys the meat and serves it hot and fast at its Beijing restaurant.

Along with other cow owners, you trade one cow for guns and ammo to defend your property rights against unconstitutional taxation, and hide your other cow. The government then invades your land to collect "the people's" taxes, and in self-defense, you fire the first shot. Having committed the ultimate crime of defending yourself against government, you are water-tortured into telling the whereabouts of your cow and your children are "reconstructed" by public schools into believing that the state action was to stop slavery... even though you owned no slaves. All the slaves in your state are freed, then immediately re-enslaved via conscription for the Federal government to be used as buffalo soldiers to commit genocide on the native Indians. Today, all blacks, whites, and the few remaining natives are enslaved to the Federal government via income taxes.
2. You have a Union of two cows. The cows have different ideological and economic needs. Before the healthier cow can control the weaker cow, the weaker cow secedes from the Union of cows.

Stock Market:
You have two cows. They produce lots of milk until a bear comes and attacks them. They are severely wounded, their children die off, and they refuse to produce milk.
