Movies and cattle have made box office gold since the Golden Age of Hollywood when westerns lit up the silver screen. Once again bovines and films have come together, this time on Twitter with the hashtag #MOOvies.
The popular Comedy Central show @midnight got the craze started on Monday when contestants rattled off their best cattle movie puns. Comedians proposed a number of cow-focused movies including: Fantastic Four Stomachs, My Left Hoof, and Ten Things I Hate About Moo.
You herd right, tonight we're playing #MOOvies! Check out the examples and play along!
