Hahaha.... Cows were already there... One day a orphan saw a calf sucking on its mother.. he too tried it... then he grew more stronger than the others... other ppl asked him.tu inna strong kaise ho gaya.. he told them... But then when the others tried to suck.. then the cow did not allow all of them to come close.. even kicked a few.. So then to give those poor souls a taste of the cows milks.. The orphan started milking... I dnt know his name.. thanks to him... I enjoy my 4 glasses a day ....

cheerz...

Hi,Soltaire-I found some answers for you:

1. I think it would have been quite clear to them. Female humans nurse their young by the breast, it would have been clear that a calf was getting a similar feeding from it's mother as well.

Why they thought cows' milk was superior to other animals' milk is another question.

2.Obviously they wanted to know what those little things down there did!

3.Actually I think it was a sheep that was milked first. Able had sheep and at the time they didn't eat meat. He used the sheep for milk and wool. It could be that the lamb died and there was the milk going to waste and they were hungry. After that they said Hay that taste pretty good. Then seeing that a goat was pretty good to. Then a cow.
Personally? I don't want anything squeezed out of the butt end of a animal.

4.I don't know. But it was a really dumb thing to do. Cuz now people are obsessed with drinking milk, but it's actually really bad for you. It's odd that humans are the only ones who drink the milk of another species, and who drink milk past infancy. Cow's milk is for BABY COWS! And human milk is for baby humans. It would be weird to see a cow drinking milk from a woman, wouldn't it? Well, that's equivalent to what people are doing...

Makes sense, no? That's why I don't drink milk ;]
----------
And,my take on the topic?
It was probably two blondes. They saw this udderly happy calf with Momma Dear,and decided to try out for themselves as to what gave so much happiness.

So, one of them lay down on the ground and grabbed hold of the milk source,while the other one lifted the cow 'up and down,up and down,up and down'.

(PS:If you're a blonde,change the word 'blonde' to 'sardars'.No offence meant to my two favorite humor-causing tribes,of course!!)

Cosmic Joy said...

I did a google search but did not find who first discovered this. However I did find an interesting link here on yahoo answers. Seems familiar :)

BTW, why do you think this inventor is a "he"?

Solitaire said...

@ Nirmal, you will not believe it..I had to go look up who MS Dhoni is. :)

@ Keshi, go for it Keshi! We will not judge you.

@ Samby, and where and how did you get this information about the orphan? Do you have the name and address too?

Solitaire said...

@ Veens, that is the most realistic story I have ever heard! Thank you! LOL!

@ Amit L, wow! Have you done a thesis on this or what? And butt-end? That's not where the udders are! Cow drinking from a woman. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! I cannot stop laughing!

Solitaire said...

@ The keeper, and what about human beings? Who did it first and why?

@ Big Omi, ok now who is that?

@ Compassion, my intuition and life experience tells me that it was a HE. ;)

@ Cosmic, you actually did a google search! I did go to that link and all the answers seem so similar! About the he, I just know it!

Solitaire said...

@ Fighter Jet, when you are done laughing, come back and write us your answer. And read AmitL's comment. It is too funny!

@ Rayshma, haha!

@ Knatchbulley, welcome back! No exams or what?

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman, reallllllllly? I would have just had the cow chew filled chocolate syrup bottles then...

@ Alok, aapke kehne ka matbal?

@ KP, and what about you KP? You are all about cricket and sports too? How much do you drink?

Cosmic Joy said...

Not only the answers, but the question is familiar too :)

And why this confidence that it is a "he" ???

Ghost Particle said...

this shall always remain a mystery.

Pavi!!!! said...

I was gonna say.. "probably some farmer who had a hear of cows n needed money desperatley"

I read these comments n then realize.. "ohh i cld think this way!"
n to think in college one of my nicks used to be "pervert-ra" !!!
Is this signs of growing old n boring?:(((?

Solitaire said...

@ Cosmic, guess a lot of people are curious about this. Idle mind is a devil's workshop.

@ Ghost Particle, apparently not..Some people already have it figured out.

@ Pavi, old? I am a fossil and yet thought of this question.

Ghost Particle said...

ur online? DID YOU BLOCK ME! grrrrrrr

KP! said...

No milk only coffee Starbuck..:).
East or west "Starbuck" is the best.

geet said...

mom did not have enough of milk to feed her an year old baby and thats when her husband got an idea. He saw this calf drinking cow's milk for hours and thought ,why cant he take a little and feed his baby. milk is after all milk you see...

and after that the greediness took over...

Keshi said...

ok :) tnxx!


**Who invented milking cows and what did he think when he started doing it ?

A Man ofcourse. And he was 'thinking' of basically nothing. Cos thats what Men do all the time - 'not thinking'.

lol sorry Men!


Keshi.

Ankur said...

:O

if u find out... then do inform me
LOL

c e e d y said...

It cant be an invention - it existed was just discovered or observed!!!!!

Nirmal's Blog said...

well i forgot to mention bout the thinking part.....actually the one who invented dint think too much..it was cow who was doing thinking part......
ever thought what her partner (bull) will think if he finds someone fondling with her (cow) assets...
yaar even animals hate infidelity..

PREETI said...

the calf...id say it ws the calf too...whthr or not it ws a he-calf or a she-calf!

Solitaire said...

@ Cosmic, read Keshi's answer about why its a he!

@ Ghost, no! I was not online. Why would I block you? Are you the psycho after me? Maybe you are.

@ Ankur, I did. See Veens answer or Samby's answer.

@ KP, then you too wanted the cow to chew coffee beans before it produces milk for some "instant coffee"?

Solitaire said...

@ Geet, wow..what a realistic story.

@ Keshi, you bet! Only you and I understand. Rest ask me why I am so confident that its a he. ;)

@ Ceedy, ok my bad! Now tell me who discovered it.

@ Nirmal, WHAT??????? You are on a roll today, aren't you?

Solitaire said...

@ Preeti, the calf?

vEENs said...

you r come-come memsahaab :)

c e e d y said...

Most of the searches lead to Middle East - where cow was domesticated purely for economical reason - its years supply of milk was worth more than its meat - goats and sheep were instead used as meats - so looking at the time and place and the way the society and culture existed - I agree with you that it could have been a HE.

Also did you know milk is actually not good for adult humans.
I stopped it from my diet for few years now.

aneri_masi said...

I don't know, just wanted to say the question (how'd come up with this, girl) and the answers are pure fun :)

badshah khan said...

I think I will go with Keshi and even i dont want to sound dirty ...

gunj said...

Ankur said...

guess wat, i have read veens comments, u call it an invention, i thought it as a discovery!!! :)

AmitL said...

Solitaire-LOL..only the last one,where I said'My take on the topic',was from me. The rest were opinions compiled from the web.So,the butt-end one was also not my conjecture..hahaha...I left the answers as they were,so as not to lessen the 'impact'.

Tuhin said...
