Cow Pies—The Smell of Money
Contributor

While visiting MazAmar Art Pottery in PioneertownCalifornia, I saw this adorable cow pie, snapped a photo, and wondered how on earth I could blog about it.

Aha! After a bit of online research, I learned that Bovine Bingo (aka Cow Pie Bingo) is a real thing that’s played with live, moooving pieces, usually as a fundraising event at a rodeo or county fair.

And while this may not rival the stakes in Las Vegas or Atlantic City, the CCV Rotary Club of Parker, Colorado and Smokin’ Brew BBQhave a fairly hefty pot. Here’s how they do it:

“A 50 X 40 grid is painted on the ground surrounded by a fence. A cow is led onto the grid to do it’s ‘business.’ The owner of the square with the majority of the Cow Pie wins half the amount raised in sold tickets, up to $10,000.”

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever bet on?
