I’m not starting this thread to discuss the line above, because I feel like that’s an opinionated avenue I don’t really want to go down. However, I am currently reading the book Why Men Marry Bitches, and just came across a funny comeback to the question above:
“Why buy the pig when all you want is a little sausage?”
It keeps cracking me up and is actually IMO more insulting than the cow line…I love it!

@goodasitgets: HA! This is so funny. I’ve always hated that “cow” line…so damn sexist.

@goodasitgets: Haha!! I needed a good laugh after a crazy day! Thank you!! So next time I hear that I will SOOO be saying that! ( My SO would never say that to me , it’s other people like extended drunk family lol)

Awesome! I love that! I also needed a good laugh today. I need to keep reminding myself of that. It works the other way too.

I’ve had that line used twice on me. Both times I came back with
“Oh, honey, this “milk” ain’t even CLOSE to free!”
They were both older aunts/great aunts and just stared at me in embarassment.

@goodasitgets: i had an ex who asked me what he could do to get me back. I started to tell him and he must not have liked what I had to say so he said “wait a second, I’m not listening to this, this is getting the cow without the milk.” He thought that was real clever but he didn’t end up getting the cow back.

@This Time Round: Thanks for the advice, but I really didn’t want to start a discussion about it, as I stated in my first post. I actually did a search and didn’t find this joke within them, so I thought I’d share.

Turn it around
“I’m choosing to marry him because he is an intelligent, interesting person. The fact that he gives me his milk doesn’t alter this fact.”

@farawayviolet: Omg I have to this and the original post if anyone has the audacity to use that “cow” quote on me.

i just reminded myself of a bee in here (sorry, don’t remember the nickname) who made wedding RSVP’s saying “MM/DD/YY we’re buying the cow”. that’s a really cute response to all the people who use that stupid ass phrase.
