Conversation right before the impact
"Dear..." "Yes, sweetheart?" "What if my mother came to live with us?" "Oh, yes, when cows fly!"
A US couple had a lucky escape when a 600lb cow unexpectedly landed on the bonnet of their minivan, unsurprisingly causing "heavy damage". According to AP, Michigan-based Charles and Linda Everson were visiting the area around Lake Chelan, Washington, to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. On their way back to the hotel …
And what about the last thoughts of the beast ?
Maybe, like in Douglas Addams' famous book, something like "Oh, what is this object coming at very high speed ? Big, brown. I wonder if we'll be friend." or more "hmmm, this van seems to come very fast, maybe jumping off the cliff wasn't the brighest idea ..."

"Yup, Seattle weather sucks. Rains all the time. This. however, is slightly unusual."

Most travellers in the area are accustomed to "danger: falling rocks" signs, which I hope will be humorously vandalized to commemorate this event.

In a secret weapons test gone horribly awry, a French MIRV (Mooing Intercontinental Re-entry Vehicle) went off-course and failed to respond to the self-destruct signal from Mission Control in Le Havre. On learning that the French had violated treaty obligations by resuming development of this terror weapon, MOD vowed to counter it with a hovercraft version of the venerable Trojan Rabbit. When confronted with the damning evidence, a French military attaché threatened gas warfare "in your general direction".
