Poor cows! I love cows. Eat more spam, less cow!

Say... what is spam made of?

Also, Chick-fil-a is where it's at. Eat them chickens...  ;D

Ok...I LOVE Chick-fil-a!! Especially their billboards on the interstates! XD
I love it too! That + the fact that it takes a thirty second walk for me to get to the one on campus from my dorm means I eat way too much of it XD :P

Y'know, I like steak as much as the next person, but I really think I could, probably, do chicken/poultry almost exclusively. It's just so good....  8)

I don't debate, I ramble with STYLE!

I give you cow in Greek! (I did not include diacritics because the character map seems to be lacking some and it didn't make sense to me to provide some but not others which are arguably more important.)

Close... I get...

N:   βοε
G:   βοοιν
D:   βοοιν
Ac:  βοε
V:   βοε

The reasoning I've used is somewhat involved but I might as well supply it as I did not take this from a paradigm (as I don't even seem to have any available with which to check)...

A class of Greek nouns had stems which ended in F otherwise known as a digamma which was pronounced as an English w. βους is such a noun. So, where this digamma was between two vowels (an intervocalic digamma similar in concept to the intervocalic sigma) it dropped out (just like what the Athenians liked to do to intervocalic sigmas) and where it came between a vowel and a consonant it either became an upsilon.

There are other possible interpretations... I may look this up in a reference grammar later if I think to do it...
