moooo matters

I came upon this term the other day: Chief Operating Officer.

Wikipedia defines the Chief Operating/Operations Officer (COO) as a corporate officer responsible for managing the day-to-day activities of the corporation. He/she is also responsible for operations management.

In short, they are known as the COO. In Scotland a Coo is a highland cattle.

Aren’t they the cutest!

A cow refers to a female bovine.

However, if you call a person a ‘cow’, it means that you are calling them names, fat, ugly, stupid... mainly used in reference to the female species.

So if you dislike the COO and say she is not the brightest, can you call her a cow??

What if it is a guy? An ox? A buffalo?

Of course, if one can hold that position, I’m sure they are nowhere as close as a cow.

Honestly, I shouldn’t be name calling or even spending time thinking about things like this...
