Once there was boy and his grandfather sitting on some steps watching some cows. The boy turned to his grandfather and said " Grandpa what are those things on the cows" and the grandfather said" those are horns" then all of sudden the cow "Mows" then boy asked his grandfather " which horn did he blow".
