WOW what a cool website, Branny! THANK you! I didn't know there was an actual expression about a Spanish cow; I wonder they didn't make it an English cow...

zmjezhd, I was going to put a question about your link, but (thank goodness) realized it was dumb beyond imagining.

Er--I'm not sure what wikiness is (speaking of dumb); I just realized the answer was staring me in the face and I hadn't seen it! [waki]
