Cows in Brazil? Today we're talking about the Indo-Brazilian.

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Hello!

REPORTER

Excuse – what?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Hello! You must be here for my interview.

REPORTER

Your –

INDO-BRAZILIAN

My interview. I'm an Indo-Brazilian cow. A Zebu type breed.

REPORTER

A what?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Zebu type breed. Oh, come on. You're supposed to know what kind of cow I am.

REPORTER

Well I –

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Haven't you people got your notes together yet? I'm a breed that was developed from the Gir and Kankrej breeds back in India with some Ongole thrown in for fun. I think that's why my horns are so small. Ha ha.

REPORTER

I'm sorry. What did – what about the Ongole?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

The Ongole?

REPORTER

Yes, the Ongole? What did you say they gave you?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Oh, the Ongole. I think I got some of the shape of my horns from them. Mine are more forward and much prettier and more petite than the Gir's. And less bullfighting than the Kankrej's. Those Kankrejs look ready to take you down their horns are so mean looking! Yes, I'd say the Ongole helped make me look more friendly.

REPORTER

Did you say Gir?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Gir? Oh yes. The Gir gave me my big, long, pendulous ears. They are quite spectacular, don't you think?

REPORTER

Yes, yes, I guess they are.

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Guess? Guess nothing, my friend! I have the biggest ear of all cow breeds. I can turn my head and smack you in the face in no time! Make you see stars, my friend. And you can thank the Kankrej for my monster dewlap.

REPORTER

Your what?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

My what? Oh, my dewlap. That huge piece of loose skin that hangs from my neck like the wattle on the neck of a turkey, your national bird.

REPORTER

Our national bird is the eagle.

INDO-BRAZILIAN

Not if Ben Franklin had had his way. No sir! Anyway, my dewlap is very impressive thanks to the Kankrej.

REPORTER

And your hump over your withers and neck?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

My hump? Oh, I think just about every breed back in India has one of those.

REPORTER

Okay, so getting back to your ears. Don't you think your pendulous ears make hearing more difficult?

INDO-BRAZILIAN

What?

REPORTER

Yes, well, thank you for your time.
