Well, I guess I missed the boat on this "topic". But the asides are funny so it was worth the shot.
Years ago - in another life - a rancher of some importance used to give big barbecue shindigs for other persons of some importance. Well, losing a beef on purpose was not "writeable" but if loss was due to self-inflicted accident, I guess it was a write-off. Seems that low flying planes spooked beef and "sometimes" one would break a leg or something. Strange how broken legs and barbecues always came a day or two apart.
