Cashmere: It's from the Boy Cow

LAist loves those LA County Fair commercials with the tagline: "If there's any place that could use a county fair, it's LA." Ain't that the truth. Where else can you see the wonders of nature -- like deep fried Snickers -- first-hand?

So which one made you chuckle more? Was it the commerical where a teacher asks her students, "Can anyone tell me what comes from a cow?" And they answer: "lattes" -- among other assorted Starbuck-type beverages. Or did the one with the Botoxified mother and her daughters out shopping (probably for My Super Sweet Sixteen) really hit home? At one point they ask the salesgirl, "Does cashmere come from a cow, too? The boy cow or the girl cow?" And the clerk responds: "The boy cow...with the tusks..."

Well, duh. Everyone knows that cashmere comes from rabbits.

The LA County Fair runs until Oct. 2.
