Do not ork cows. It is a filthy activity and probably illegal.
Where did the word coworker come from?
At what point did it cease to matter that you do not know where to find the hyphen key on your computer?
Co-worker. A colleague. A fellow worker. Not an orker of cows.
Main Entry:
Middle English, from Latin, from com-; akin to Old English ge-, perfective and collective prefix.

I feel better now for that. Maybe that's what I'll do for a while. Have quick blogrants.
Umm. If you feel that coworker is indeed a valid word, unhyphenated, then don't try to tell me. lalala, I can't hear you... coworkers are people who ork cows:- not colleagues. Unless you are in a cow-orking syndicate. In which case I hope you are arrested soon. And taught the folly of your ways.


  1. I am not sure... now you have me wondering about this! Now that I am confused...

    Enjoy your blog.


  2. The OED announces that co-worker is a hyphenated word - that's the law. Strangely cow-pat and cow-parsley are also hyphed.

    Oh, and cow orking has been practiced in Bumstead-under-Bumstead for over 500 years. No one has got it right yet, they are still practising.

  3. Cowp-at?

  4. Never orked a cow before...but I hear cow pushing is fun...lost in translation..enjoyed your blog and thanks for visiting mine.

  5. I think Tolkein invented cow orcs. They were bovine elves that were bred with trolls.
    One ring to mool them all...

  6. Cownofsky!

  7. Kelli? Cowp-ushing?
    It's claimed to be an urban myth. Oh no. That's cowt-ipping. Actually, I think a cow which shows a willingness and eagerness to do its job deserves a tip. As long as the tip isn't creamed off by the farm management.
    Troll-op, genetically modded orc-cows? scary.
    Steve: Axolotl Potrzgrebie?
    What-Me worry?

  8. Doug: Sorry, I'm commenteringinging backwards.You think you're confused? that's just a normal state for me.
