Cow Flop


I received this simultaneously as both a CIDU and an Arlo Page candidate. The scene is analogous to guys watching a female jogger who is overly endowed and underly restrained. I personally never saw the aesthetic appeal of this sort of flopping about; but the women in question must believe they’re putting on a show much to be admired, because I imagine this has to be rather painful and I can’t think of any other reason.

All this being said, of course, the “slosh, slosh, slosh” in the first panel was a great sound effect.


  1. Think Baywatch

  2. On Baywatch, they’re at least somewhat constrained. I’ve actually never watched the show, but I doubt Pamela Anderson ever gave herself a black eye.

  4. Great… now that song is stuck in my head.

  5. Um, not quite.

    It’s almost impossible to find a reasonably-priced bra that will prevent large breasts from flopping around. Regular bras don’t have enough support, and most sports bras are made for women with small breasts. (One size fits all doesn’t.) Sports bras for women with larger breasts either do a better job looking like a sports bra than actually acting like one or are ridiculously overpriced – I’ve seen them at $600 or more.

    So if you have large breasts you can either a) not exercise at all, b) exercise secretly at home as if your body were shameful, or c) not care what other people think. But if you choose c) uninformed people will call you an exhibitionist or even worse.

  6. Also, Pamela Anderson’s were fake even three sizes ago. Fake ones don’t bounce as much because of the scar tissue that surrounds them (and because they don’t weigh anywhere near as much as the real thing).

  7. Admittedly I am speaking out of ignorance here, but it seems to me that there are many ways to exercise and some are more practical for some people. Choosing a mode of exercise that is bound to be uncomfortable and painful — and not in a no-pain-no-gain way — doesn’t seem like a logical option either for health or for enjoyment.

    So yes, it’s reasonable to assume a third motivation.

  8. So would you say that women swim not for exercise, but to show off their bodies? Gimme a break. Large breasts jiggle even when the woman is walking at a normal pace. Since jogging is one of the best exercises you can do, some women will jog despite the pain in the hope that they will – if you can bring yourself to believe it – get healthier!

  9. “One of the best exercises” isn’t THE best if it causes you pain that other exercises would not. Not everything is the best choice for everybody.

    I’m just saying… My exercise of choice is the treadmill — but when I had a broken toe, I recognized the fact that this wouldn’t be a good idea.

  10. Sometimes they bounce a bit, but don’t hurt that much.

    I need a real non-sports bra, like yesterday.

    The one I have hurts like hell, but nothing moves.

    And I can’t fathom jogging with no support.

    Where’s the CIDU here?

    Arlo, yes. But not CIDU.

  11. I think marie meant jogging is best for your knees, if I recall something I heard a bijillion years ago.

    I ride my bike.

    Hopefully not much bouncing there…

  12. I thought jogging was bad for your knees?

  13. Only if your breasts keep hitting them

  15. I looked at this cartoon for quite a while before the meaning dawned on me. I think maybe the jogging cow should have a sweatband or some other prop to show she’s jogging. What makes this cartoon funny to me is the idea that the cow’s udder is sexually attractive to the bulls…but I guess…well.
