On my way to this next venture, I discovered an added bonus roadside attraction while driving through Ashley, MI.
Along eastbound M-57, I found this little delight.
Sorry the picture quality is a little eh, but I had to pull over quickly and snap it through my windshield. Not to mention the fact that there was a cop coming…
Makes for a good chuckle along a rather long stretch of road, especially when you discover the name of the next intersecting road.
Gotta love a farmer with a good sense of humor.
After the rest stop (which I did not utilize, by the way, despite it literally having my name on it), I made my way to Elsie, MI.
The small town with a big heart has a big town mascot, ELSIE THE COW- S. Ovid and W. Main, Elsie, MI 48831.
Elsie seems to have a bit of a sordid past.
The name Elsie implies that she is indeed suppose to be a girl, but it turns out Elsie was originally a black angus bull that has been painted black and white to look like more like a cow. When you look at this animal, you can tell purely by the body shape that Elsie was/is a bull.
Ellis the bull, perhaps.
Mom and Dad wanted a girl, ended up with a boy, so they dressed him up to look like a girl. Classic case of taking your problems out on your kid. Poor Ellis/Elsie.
Thank heavens for Target, in case nature calls while shopping. Restroom selection dilemma avoided.
Go visit the quaint small town of Elsie and pay your respects to the gender-confused cow… bull. Coll? Buw?
Until next time, dahlings…
