Projects / cowsay


Cowsay is the easy way to add speaking and thinking cows (and a few other creatures) to anything. Any message you like, even in large figlet letters, can be rattled off by these ASCII critters. Cowsay comes with over 40 creatures that can be bent to your sick and twisted will. New "cows" can be easily bred by those versed in the appropriate dark arts. Cowsay is more useful than most of the items found in SkyMall catalogues, and a lot less expensive.
