Cow tipping

Is it appropriate to include a picture of a cow with the caption "An unsuspecting potential victim?" People disputed this caption, largely because some considered it humor and no evidence could be found that it was. Many different variations were put forth from plain "A cow" to humorous "Mooo?" Consensus was to delete the image, but the article ended up with the picture of "A cow in its natural upright state." There were attempts to add a cow lying down to dispute that cows can lie down and get up, but the edit warriors refused it. Perhaps cow tipping is just an urban legend and the implication that this cow could be tipped violates WP:NPOV. Can any reliable source verify that the cow is unsuspecting? Does it matter that the cow is looking at the camera? How does this segue into links to flatulence humor and the dozens? Learn the answers to these burning questions and others at Talk:Cow tipping.

@DrewDad,
I'm also particularly amused by Sulfur/Sulphur and Aluminum/Aluminium.

(Note that they decided on Sulfur and Aluminium.)

@DrewDad,
Debating and answering these questions will form the moral destiny of the human race and collective human soul.

We need some of those philosofoodudes to answer the question how do angels spell the name of the Libyan president Qaddafi.

You know ... pressing questions of morality and other such important thingies.
