Cows are real cute y’all. I get thinking this would be fun, but it sounds like it’s really a dumb idea… 

European officials are asking citizens not to participate in the Cow Kiss Challenge as it could turn out bad for everyone involved.

Launched as a charity drive by the app Castl on Wednesday, users in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria have taken up the task, which involves walking up to the farm animal and smooching, “with or without tongues”. If you want cow tongue in your mouth, go grill one up and eat it. Otherwise, hard pass. 

Both politicians and farm experts have warned that approaching a cow, especially one with calves nearby, could lead to trampling or worse.

Remember Mad Cow Disease folks? That’s still a thing. Keep your tongues to yourself as far as cows are concerned.
