COWTERIZE – The Wednesday Wordapod

Today’s (The Wednesday) Wordapod was suggested by my brother Josh, with an assist from my niece Rachelle. This one is hot off the press, and not one of the 250-plus wordapods featured in Wordapodia, Volume One.

 

Cowterize

Cowterize (v)to burn the skin or flesh of a domestic bovine animal in order to stop a serious infection

Please Note:  One can cowterize domestic bovines verbally, but it wouldn’t be advised — for either medical or ethical reasons.

Sample Sentence:  When Elsie was suffering from a bad wound in her rear flank, Farmer Schmegeggie cowterized it with an electrically charged wire.

Also, Please Note:  The practice of electrocautery is frowned upon by some bovine lovers. Frankly, I am more concerned about those who smile upon this practice.
