Mangeratrois

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: mayn jur a twa

Sentence: It was becoming udderly impossible for a cowboy like Chuck (a Taurus) who lived in El Toro to consummate his relationship with the lovely Bovina, from Covena (still a Virgo). The reason for this was that she allowed her pet Hereford, Elsie, to sleep on her bed. It was cute when Elsie was a newborn orphaned baby, but reaching her mature size, the bed was far too small. Chuck thought a full-grown cow belonged on the range or in the freezer! Because of this mangeratrois, he would get charlie horses in his calves each night;hoof in mouth disease;hay fever;wake up Friesian each night because Elsie steered the covers off him and have cowlicks in his hair. Chuck was getting desperate to become the Loin King, the only thing that kept him going was the delicious, recurring dreams he had...mmmm, Porterhouse, Sirloin, Tenderloin, Rib Eyes, Beef Ribs, Filet Mignons, Chateaubriand,T-Bones, Prime Ribs, Ground Round, Rib Roasts, Rouladen, Salisbury, Standing Rib, Swiss Steak, Steak Tartare,Hamburger, Beef Stew...Cud this couple really live happily Heifer after?
