That smell coming from Jefferson County High School's football stadium this fall? Let's just say it may not be the hot dogs. Those cheers from the crowd? Not for the team. In fact, the players won't even be on the field. They'll be on the sideline, rooting. For what? One lonely cow wandering a 100-yard field in search of a place to go to the bathroom.

Where the bovine ultimately decides to do her business will mean big bucks for the lucky person who bet on that portion of the field.

It's all part of a local charity's Oct. 16 "Cow Drop Raffle" to raise money for equipment to stock the football team's weight lifting room.

The Dandridge event is one of many planned by charities across the state now that the General Assembly has permitted gambling fund-raisers by certain nonprofit organizations.

Seventy-one charities received the OK from the state Senate last week to host events. They likely will be approved next week by the House.

Charities have jumped with enthusiasm and creativity on the new way to raise cash, with events ranging from the staid to the quirky to the outright smelly.

I'd hate to be the one to clean up afterward. :eek:

These aren't that uncommon.  Until my province's gaming commission said that Engineers without Borders wasn't enough of a charity (yeah, figure that one out, I still can't), I was heading up planning one ;)

^ High-five for Iowa!  I'm here between Mizzou and Sciences Po in a few months, back with the Family.  Otherwise, I have nothing of substance to add :D

Maybe they should do this technique come November. Put a picture of Bush on one side of the White House lawn, and a picture of Kerry on the other. Whichever one the cow poops on is our new President.

^ Nah, then there'd be a lawsuit by the losing side claiming the cow was biased ;)

Or else it would poop on the divider, and they'd be arguing which side got the brunt.
