After that it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.

HONG KONG CAPITALISM:
You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly-listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping five cows. The milk rights of six cows are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the right to all seven cows' milk back to the listed company. The annual report says that the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. Meanwhile, you kill the two cows because of bad "feng shui".

You have two cows. The government takes them and denies they ever existed. Milk is banned.

You are torn by feelings of guilt, your psychotherapist recommends a treatment centre. You spend six weeks there, paid for by the community health plan, and graduate into Guilty Anonymous.

Wow, dude, there's like...these two cows, man. Uh, so, like, you have really got to do some of this milk, like, fer shur, it's awesome, man.
