Cowbike drawing competition

With reference to several recent items (1, 2, 3), Emma Moo-Cow bets we can’t produce a cow on a bike. Well, finding what a number of sites call Cow-A-Saki wasn’t too difficult (anyone know who it is?). However, I think she probably meant a pushbike. That’s harder, but let’s try:

  • One of the episodes of the laugh-free Flemish TV comedy series, Lachen is gezond (Laughing is good for you), features a cow that rides away on a bike and is hit by a lorry. Unfortunately, their budget and creativity are too limited to allow any of this action to be shown.
  • As a Dutch proverb teaches us, een koe zonder fiets heeft ook eigenlijk niets (± What reason to like/A cow without a bike?). Unfortunately I can find neither illustration nor source.
  • Cyclecide run bike rodeos in … California, but the idea is that you ride a bike that looks only very vaguely like a cow and then get very drunk. I think. I have only run over two pigeons (by mistake) in my cycling career, so I’d feel uncouth in their company.
  • Moostro is the most promising candidate, but she looks more like a merchant banker in a tux than cows I have known.
  • Duck on a Bike sounds quite promising. Anyone know more?
  • What the hell is this about?
  • Nokia does a screensaver, but it’s a scooter, not a bike. Fools.

So we failed? No, that means it’s time for the …
