    Speaking of bovines, here's an on topic quote from 1882:

    "In watch case decorations the raised gold work introduced by Messrs. Keller and Untermeyer is very popular. They offer a great many new and artistic designs. Just now they are having quite a run on infuriated Texas bulls."


    The truth is stranger than fiction, eh?
