This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the most useful animal?

Steve delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Djere, Kaitlin, MC-B, and Josh:

The only animal eaten, drank, and worn all over the world — the placid, cud-chewing cow.


Djere concurs, joined by MC-B, and Job:

Bos taurus: the humble cow. The female is useful for milk, the male for work and meat. If man didn’t have steak, it would be the end of civilization.


Tom dissents, joined by Connie, Erin, and David:

The dog. Whether guiding the blind or guarding the sheep, pulling a sled or finding a bomb, dogs are our oldest, most faithful, and most useful companions.


Mike dissents, joined by David:

The horse — it’s entertainment! It’s transportation! It’s food!


Chloe joins this dissenting opinion:

The Passenger Pigeon is the most useful to mankind because it, and its subsequent diseases, are extinct.


Next time: What is the most ridiculous Olympic sport?

    This is a test of the Emerngy Commenting System. Had this been an actual comment it would have been less understandable and much more wordy.

    …and emergency would have been spelled right.
