Did you know that an ox is a castrated bull? You did? Geez, I guess I wasn’t paying attention the day they covered that. I always thought oxen were their own breed of animal.
Makes sense, I guess. Still, it makes gives me pause. Is a buffalo really a cow born with a deformity? And what about a water buffalo? Is that a cow with a drinking problem?
You make your way through life with all these preconceived notions, certain of your understanding about the nature of things. And then one day, wham. You discover that an ox (mighty though he is) is just a very unhappy boy cow.
It makes you wonder what other incorrect beliefs are clouding your thinking.
