Moody Cow Body Lotion .

To the scarecrow judging contest in a neighbouring village . A Madame Bay lookalike, La Reine du Menage, wins . Wilf enters into the spirit of things by carefully christening the feet of the winning entry . Thankfully , the farmers wife responsible is a dog person .

A large parcel of ungents for 'the font ' arrives from Libertys in London. Ordered on Friday, delivered on Saturday . Amid the revitalising face sprays, body oils, and assorted creams a free gift. Six bottles of ' balancing body lotion '. After carefully studying the label I ask ' the font ' if there had been some disagreement with the sales assistant . Wilf looks on as we roar with laughter . What a strange name for a product .


  1. Well that's just udderly ridiculous! :)

  2. Love this post - M'Ongoose you should consider writing as a career!
    Wilfie I love you - you look soooo gorgeous - you own my heart!
    Love from Southern Italy Susanne, Daisy and Foxiie - trotting to take a mineral hot water bath against his hip problem... While I am in the pool he is in a bucket up to his stomach - after 3 baths he stops hinking

  3. I always enjoy seeing the creativity of the scare crows and the unusual names given to cosmetics. I saw one called 'Big Fatty' which is a lip plumper--Who thinks of these names?

  4. My husband peeked over my shoulder as the picture of the "cowshed" lotion appeared.... He guffawed and asked if it smelled like cow manure. He thinks that the font had some trouble with that salesperson too!

  5. Our Wilf was just making it known that he was in agreement with the selection of the winning scarecrow.
    Surely not, I thought after seeing the name of the product. But after reading about these products and how they're made, I think I might enjoy them!
    The company describes their names as cheeky. I think a bit too much so!
    A lovely silkened skin Saturday to you.

  6. six bottles free?!!!
    you sometimes get a free gift here but one only and then after you've spent big money. wow. maybe it's that calm, scandinavian demeanor that mesmerized the clerk!
    i started my morning with the neighbor kitty scratching a hole in my window screen.. and when i opened the french door onto my patio to get her to stop, a small tarantula raced in...
    i am now an irritated neighbor-small-creature- murderer... all before breakfast. not exactly life in the beautiful france profonde!
    hug my beloved wee polar bear and tell him i need a hug this morning from him! he'll know.

  7. Mr. O & I are still laughing... Can you hear us?

  8. I was giggling about it even before I read what you had to say about the lotion! Not every company spends the time in product development and marketing as they should, obviously.

    That scarecrow is quite the work of art!

  9. So THAT'S what Madam Bay looks like....

  10. I love the scarecrow. With the lotion it would be a brave man to suggest that "the font" should have recieved one of the other Cowshed lotions which include Knacked cow, Lazy cow and Horny cow.

    Their marketing reminds me of an interesting drop of alcohol that was drunk at parties I went to in the early 80's called Purple Death. Often bought just for the label's long description, but I also remember going to the "Purple Death factory" (an Auckland vineyard) with friends in the Air Force who would buy the liquid in flagons. I still remember that the label (on the wine bottle size serving) described it as being "strained through old jock straps with a hint of the taste of burnt cat fur". With age the type of alcohol I'm willing to drink has changed, but I've just checked the vineyard's website and thirty years on they have improved things (or perhaps not) as the current version is described as "An unusual "Rough-as-Guts" aperitif that has the distinctive bouquet of horse-shit and old tram tickets. It is best drunk with teeth clenched to avoid foreign bodies". Proof, that with good marketing anything can be sold!

  11. The scarecrow judges know a good thing when they see it! ;)

    Blessings and Love,
    Janelle and Maggie Mae

  12. That scarecrow could put even a 'moody cow' in good spirits!!

  13. A lot of free product there and a very odd one to boot. Love what Wilf did to the winner there!

  14. I'm almost afraid to ask what that lotion smells like! lol

  15. The scarecrow is fantastic! What fun you have in your village :) The "moddy cow" lotion, no doubt, gave you musch to laugh about! Thanks for the "laugh out loud" moment this morning!
