Popbitch has an amusing little thing called cow economics. It uses the idea of owning cows to describe various different types of economic systems. A couple of my favourites include:
AN ITALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows, but you don’t know where they are.
You decide to have lunch
AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.
