Plot Description

Spoiler warning! The narrator wants to tell us about an amazing cow named Miss Milky Daisy. She came to live with him when she was seven months old. She had a funny sort of bump lump on her back. Eventually the lumps started to grow and one day they burst apart and out came gold and silver wings. Daisy was able to fly! Soon she was on television and millions of people came to see her. Most of them were well-behaved, but one man from Afghanistan yelled out, “That silly cow! Hey, listen Daisy! / I think you’re absolutely crazy!” Daisy heard every word and immediately dived towards the man. “Bombs gone!” she cried. “Take that!” she said, / And dropped a cowpat on his head.
