Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the dish.
The little dog laughed,
To see such craft,
And the horn ran away with the dish

... until the cows learned to pick up sticks and other things and wave them
over their heads in front of the dish, trying to figure out why their TVs
weren't getting a good signal anymore.

They eventually gave up on that effort and picked up paintbrushes instead.
Now they're enjoying their new-found fame working for Chick-Fil-A and you
can find them hanging on billboards around the country.

(Sorry; couldn't resist sharing the mental picture I got when I read your
post. :-)
