Sentence: When Angus moved in with Cattelena, he herd that her bovine was to menagerieatrois with them. Sometimes he wished he had been more of a maverick and had had time to ruminate; take a poll or gotten a Papal Bull about the hayrrangement. Suddenly, phrases like "Hit the Hay", "BedSpread", "Counterpain", "Rustling the sheets", "Udder ecstasy", "Beef Tongue", "Ranch Dressing", "Ride a Limousin" and "DetOX" took on a whole new meaning for him. And many's a night he awoke Friesian because someone had steered the covers off him or he had a very sharp pain in his calf! Every morning, there was a stampede for the bathroom. At this rate,and with his short horn, he would never be a fodder.

Etymology: menage a trois ("sleeping" arrangement of 2 with a third participant, wink, wink, nod, nod, say no more, a wink's as good as a nod to a blind horse) & menagerie (a facility where animals are kept)
