    Man Killed by Cow Falling through Roof

    A Brazilian man was killed when a cow crashed through his roof and fell on him as he was sleeping. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2...razilian?lite=

    “I didn't bring my son up to be killed by a falling cow," his mother Maria de Souza told Brazil's Super Canal TV channel. "He nearly died when he was two and got meningitis, but I worked hard to buy medicines for him and he survived. And now he's lying in his bed and gets crushed to death by a cow. There's no justice in the world.”
    When I'm old, I don't want them to say of me, "She's so charming." I want them to say, "Be careful, I think she's armed."

    how is the cow?
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I wondered about that, too, but the article didn't say whether the cow was injured or killed.

    Perhaps killed, cooked, and served up at the guy's funeral? It is, after all 3000 pounds (really?).

    I know, I know, this isn't funny, a man has died here, but still ...

    Maybe it was jumping over the moon and had a bad landing.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.

    I didn't quite understand that part. So is the guy's house against a wall that's directly against the back of the hill? Or did the cow make a big leap when it got to the bottom of the hill?

    The roof of the house slants into the hill, and I would assume the wall is directly against the back of the hill, yes. So a cow just climbed onto it.

    This sounds too much like a hoax
