15 Funniest Tweets About Viral Sensation ‘Giant Cow’

When you’re caught in the never-ending nightmare that is the 2018 news cycle sometimes you just need something to distract you from conflict and corruption, something to take you away to a fantasy world full of whimsy and joy.

Sometimes that thing is a big effin’ cow.

To be more specific this gentle giant is a Holstein Friesian steer who resides in Australia and who, at 6’4″ and 1.4 tons, is being heralded as the biggest steer in the world as well as an “absolute unit.”

I mean look at that thing.

Here are some of the best ones so you don’t have to google “knickers” and wind up on some kinky British dating site.

The kicker for Knickers is that his tremendous size, and most likely his global fame, means that he won’t be going to the slaughterhouse but will live out his huge, natural life in peace. Which is happy news for big cows and big cow lovers alike.

Of course, The Washington Post had to go and be ‘That Guy’ who reminded everyone that Knickers isn’t a cow, he’s a steer. So, people had fun with that too.
