I came across this in a copy of the Ireland's Own a while back and though there was a fair degree of truth to the thing, and not a little humour but what the cows thought is another story. The milk of human kindness and all that. Anyway from Dan Conway's corner and I thought I might add a few pints myself.
Socialism: you have two cows, you give one to your neighbour who promptly eats it and then complains because you won't give him the other one.
Communism: you have two cows, the state takes both, ties them up in red tape and when their udders burst shoots them.
Bureaucrat ism: (EU) you have two cows. The state takes both, shoots one, milks the other and then throws the milk away. (Thanks Dan!)
Capitalism: you have two cows, the herd multiplies, the economy grows, supply exceeds demand, the bottom falls out of the market and the state collapses.
Fascism: you have two cows so you steal another two and then when your neighbour complains you shoot him
Let them out on the long acre I say, there's grass for everyone and if they don't come back wait awhile and another two will come along depending on the season that's in it of course! And there's Blackberries and the air's free and the water's free,
