Y'all better watch your hides.

    They'd still do for the masses. It's a quantity vs. quality thing. Lots of Chinese so they need lots of it. :tooth:

    Ya know, I just looked at that picture in the OP, and realized I'd seen something similar before, but not in a neat rectangle. I was using the bulldozer to bury a cow that had died giving birth. She'd hid herself pretty well so it was about a week finding her until the buzzards started circling. I got the bulldozer and dug a hole parallel with her back about 4 feet deep. When I pushed her in the hole she'd gassed up enough to explode when she hit bottom. There were some stinky bits that hit the hood of the bulldozer, and looked a lot like that. Maggots, grubs, bits of fat and flesh and hide. Pretty interesting smell slow roasting on the hood of the dozer. I used a convenient rag to sweep it off and then pushed the dirt in over the carcass. Glad I've got a cast iron stomach as to smells like that. That old cow was putting out some powerful scent! :rotflmao:

    What landed on the hood of the 'dozer was definitely irregular clumps. And I'd say the more it heated up on the bulldozer's hot hood, the more aroma it put out!

    After living on a farm most of my life, I have a pretty good bank of stories similar to that to draw on. Funny stories for sharing around the campfire, but definitely not for telling in 'polite company'. :tooth:
