You’ve probably wondered all your life where the phrase “Holy cow!” came from. I know exactly how you feel because things like that have tormented me for a long time, and we know that I’m just a normal person, right? Well, let me end your torment… when the first person who saw this cow unintentionally uddered, “Holey cow!?” the saying was sooooooooo appropriate that it just kinda stuck. We would never expect this result if he had uddered, “Holey smoke!” right? …because, well, what does holy smoke have to do with a cow full of holes? It’s just completely logical. Now you are wondering why you spent so many years wondering about the origin of that common phrase and thinking, “Holey shit, I’m dumb!” …right?
