No Tipping

No Tipping

“Let’s get this out of the way: Cow tipping, at least as popularly imagined, does not exist. Drunk young men do not, on any regular basis, sneak into cow pastures and put a hard shoulder into a cow taking a standing snooze, thus tipping the poor animal over.

While in the history of the world there have surely been a few unlucky cows shoved to their side by boozed-up morons, we feel confident in saying this happens at a rate roughly equivalent to the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series.”

    Nonsense. Cow tipping is real. I believe 20% is the current standard, up from 15%.

    An 18% Service Charge will be added for herds of 6 or more.
