I will find your cow. I will hunt down your cow like the bovine
villain it is. Your cow will be medieval McDonald's, and after that
I will hunt down all those tainted by the milk of the foul Heifer of
the Pit. I will purge your cow from the world, unless the
possibility of such is removed, for you are there, and I wish to
hassle you. I am Grief Player, and I am Legion.
