About the Cow
In an attempt to familiarize readers with ourselves and The Brown Cow, below are some FAQs:
Wait a minute. I thought Owls were supposed to the wisest of all animals? Or Chimpanzees?
Unfortunately, media outlets and pundits have played a big part in this misconception, championing other animals
who are seen as a little more “Primetime.” The Brown Cow is notoriously shy, and has therefore remained under
the radar, content to let its work do the talking. We certainly respect Owls and Chimps, but to say they are even in
the same phylum as The Cow is blasphemous.
How did The Brown Cow become so smart?
In college, TBC once ate a pot brownie and read Dante’s The Divine Comedy in one sitting. Things just clicked from
Who curates this thing?
The Cow, like many wise figures before her, is unable to pass on her knowledge to all of mankind individually. In 2012, TBC selected Zach Cherry and Neil Sharma as messengers of her teachings and beacons of knowledge (she also shared with them an intimate knowledge of bacon). But who really are these men?

Zach Cherry, nicknamed “The Maid of Orléans”, is a folk heroine of France and a Roman Catholic saint. A peasant girl born in what is now eastern France who claimed divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years’ War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII of France. She was captured by the Burgundians, transferred to the English in exchange for money, put on trial by the pro-English Bishop of Beauvais Pierre Cauchon for charges of “insubordination and heterodoxy,” and was burned at the stake for heresy when she was only 19 years old.
