Cowsay!

Who wants a thinking speaking configurable cow! I wonder if anyone has found a good use for it. As for me, its just another fun tool like fortune and fish. You can make cow speak anything from stdin, it's fun making it speak some fortune for you.
ideamonk@sacea:~$ sudo apt-get isntall cowsay
ideamonk@sacea:~$ fortune | cowspeak

I wish I could have two cows calling each other, as in
ideamonk@sacea:~$ fortune | cowthink | cowsay

You know... it's like the cow would think first and then speak :P but that doesn't happen as of now... maybe soon. Till then I have to avoid doing so...
ideamonk@sacea:~$ fortune | cowsay | cowthink
