Troubletown.

THEY DON'T CALL THEM DOWNERS FOR NOTHING.

BEEF COWS THAT ARE TOO SICK TO STAND UP.

I JUST LOST MY APPETITE.

LIKE ABOUT COWS THAT TWITCH, OR HAVE NERVOUS TICS, FACIAL PARALYSIS, OR SLURRED MOOING ...

DON'T WORRY, 1 IN 40,000 COWS LIKE THIS ARE TESTED!

IT'S SOMEWHAT IRRELEVANT ANYWAY, AS THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS COME BACK APPROXIMATELY TWO WEEKS AFTER THE MEAT IS SHIPPED AS FOOD.

ENJOY THE MUSCLE.

STAY AWAY FROM THE BRAIN STEM, MRS. RUTTLEDGE.

YUCK! EVERY TIME THE NEWS REASSURES US THAT WE'RE SAFE FROM MAD COW, I LEARN MORE ABOUT MEAT THAN I WANT TO KNOW!

USUALLY IT'S NOTHING MORE THAN GANGRENE, LYMPHOMA, OR HEPATITIS, IN OTHER WORDS IT STILL MAKES AN EXCELLENT STEAK OR STANDING RIB ROAST.

PATRONS AT LE PETIT ECOUEURER, WHICH SPECIALIZES IN DISHES FEATURING BRAINS AND SPINAL TISSUE, SEEM UNFAZED.

I HAVE CONCERNS BUT I'M NOT GOING TO BECOME GHOULISH ABOUT IT.
