Cows stop play.

fine drizzle-
half a dozen cows stop
two inter-city trains


Power to the cow!

A handful of cows brought two big manmade machines to a full stop while making a policeman and a railwayman look silly trying to herd them away and look cool doing it.

To be fair to the policeman, he showed a good sense of humour and it lightened the mood of the overcrowded trains trying to get home from work.

more power to the cow!
(about 17 years ago, six bulls scaped from a stopped train in City of Bell, California. It was during the morning commute, Talk about gridlock!)
