Irony: escaped 'mad cow' visits McDonald's drive-thru window

News

A cow is the talk of the town in Brush, Colorado, after she escaped from her farm a few weeks ago and took a trip to a local McDonald's. According to employees at the fast-food spot, Darcy, who is owned by the Winn family, strutted right up to the drive-thru window and put her face against the glass.

Workers were, of course, surprised. While this is clearly entertaining, the irony (after all, McDonald's is known for serving burgers) is impossible to escape.

The animal, who some in the town are apparently calling a "mad cow," has been fodder for discussion, laughter -- and news reports -- since her visit to the fast food chain. Consumerist has more about Darcy's voyage out of her pen and to the local restaurant:

The attention-seeking cow has been known to escape from her pen when bored, and walked to a McDonald's about half a mile away from her home. She didn't learn the horrible truth about where hamburgers come from, but did surprise employees and customers alike when she poked her head in through the drive-thru window.

Since the town has no laws against wandering livestock, Darcy's owners weren't ticketed or charged with any crimes.
