Cowpies at Poophenge
Cowpies weren't on the menu at The Dew Plop Inn, back when owner Alma Dingleberry could hardly make ends meet. One morning in '08, little Dickybob saw the pies. Petrified cowpies. Stacked on a new fence post. Dickybob was quite excited. He was helping his uncle, Jack, off a horse at the time. "Looky there, Uncle Jack! It's like Stonehenge, but with cow sh!t."
"Don't say sh!t, Dickybob. Now run on up to the diner and tell your grandma we're ready for breakfast."
Off he went. "Let's eat, Grandma! There's cowpies stacked in the field!"
That's the story Alma plans to tell the city-slicker reporter from the New York Times, who's been emailing her about cow breeds, the petrification process, and how her roadside tourist attraction got its start.
Will the professor emeritus of archaeology at the local junior college come sniffing around, and give the townspeople the straight poop? (150 words)
