I remember the days when you could buy a cow with a tin of beans

Maisie is being sent out to buy yet more milk for one or other of the meetings in the library.

"Wouldn't it be easier to buy a cow?"

I ask. Which prompts the inevitable discussion in the staff room.

"I should think we've got more than enough cows as it is."

"If we bought a cow we could call it T.Aldous."

"We could say that it was a tribute."

Tin of beans? TIN OF BEANS?!?

(Cow ruffling Topiary indignantly)

Cow will have you know she would need at least 2 cases of beans to be bought.

Topiary cows are obviously more expensive than the norm.
