The Week contest: Loo for moo
This week's question: German scientists have successfully toilet trained cows to urinate in a special pan. When bovine pee mixes with feces in fields and cowsheds it unleashes ammonia, which can contribute to acid rain and tainted water. If the scientists were to start selling their cow potty to farmers, what catchy name should they give the product?
