Will Crazy Cows Turn My Brain Into Swiss Cheese?

Now that mad cow disease is back, should you be worried? They say no here, but I’m a big believer in the idea that if something bad could happen it almost definitely will happen, so, yeah, go ahead and panic. Let’s not pretend like there aren’t tons of wacky cattle pieces in the system already. In fact, if you’ve consumed red meat in the last, oh, twenty years or so, it is fairly certain that BSE WILL EAT YOUR BRAIN. So there’s really nothing to be done about it at this point. Might as well go have that burger.
