} Which part of the question troubles you?
} Never mind, it is irrelevant. I shall cover all aspects of your
} Americans: This is quite easy. Any ethnic group stupid enough not to
} be able to find THEIR OWN COUNTRY on a globe can be easily molded to do
} just about any strange ritual. The Fastfuudites of Tau Cygnus (and
} their leaders, King McDonald of the Burghers and "Dairy" Queen Wendy)
} are most likely responsible for the mind-control aspect in question.
} regularily: Dead cow is an addictive substance, not unlike nicotine and
} Lay's Potato Chips. Once one has partaken of it, withdrawl symptoms
} cause the partaker to seek out "just one more" serving of the substance.
} These withdrawl symptoms come about fairly quickly, thus accounting for
} the frequency of the return visits.
} eat: the flat, black portions normally served unfortunately make poor
} frisbees, and no other potential use for them has yet been theorized.
} pieces: the bread makers of America refuse to make buns large enough to
} accommodate an entire cow, citing high overhead costs and low sales
} dead: America, never having been cannibalistic, has a distinct distaste
} for blood of any kind. Draining the blood from the animal unfortunately
} kills it.
} cow: The cow, being a rather docile animal and easy to catch (were all
} females that way!) proves an easy target for predators. Although
} Americans do posess the technology to catch more elusive animals (a
} certain asphalt-treading avis comes to mind), they (the Americans) are
} in fact themselves rather lazy. Thus they do not bother using their
} techonological advantages, and content themselves with holding onto the
} animals that are easily held.
} I hope I have covered your question.
