Draw a nose and eyes on its head. color little hooves. Also draw nice body sploches. Install the rocket again and throw up on people. (don't!)
Make sure rockets are legal in your country. Most cows only last a couple of shots. If you can, post a picture of it before and after you use it!(if you can)

Great 'ible'! I have like a million bottle rockets left over from the fourth. I'm going to try this. tip: Maybe next time you take pictures you could use a camera stand? I also have trouble holding a camera still in close ups.=)

Whaleman (author)INSTRUCTUBAL2008-11-20

I said China, but, hey, Mexico is a lot closer...

INSTRUCTUBAL (author)Whaleman2008-11-21

In Chinatown you can buy these cool little paper popper balls. I'm not sure what they're filled with, but they're pretty loud when thrown.

gunpowder annd gravel my friend

it isnt gunpowder. its treated gravel. it is regular grave soaked in silver fulminate.NOT fulminating silver, or is unstable stuff, why do you think they are packed in a bunch of sawdust? my friend squeezed one a bit too hard and it popped in his fingers. ADVICE: I wouldnt go opening thousands of these up if i were you. a guy that was making some of this got a drop of sweat in it and it had a reaction and a bunch of gas came off of it and burned out his eyes.

Whaleman (author)crestind2007-03-15

o ya, u mean like poppers and they light up if thrown after dark? I hav lots of those things, but they dont work if u lite them on fire, only if u throw it. I used a trebuche thing and it works to throw them for me ;)

crestind (author)Whaleman2007-03-15

I think so. I don't know if they light up in the dark, but they pop. Fun stuff :)

They don't have very big fireworks in china... i went there and they all are pretty small. go to Krazy Kaplan's. they have big fireworks

The Renaissance Man (author)2007-06-19

So what is this supposed to do???

spartin117 (author)2007-02-28

i would do this but i cant get any fire crackers where i live(ARIZONA)so it kinda sucks i was looking forward to it :(:(:(

Whaleman (author)spartin1172007-03-07

i dont hav access to explosives either, the home owners are really up-tight where i live, we cant even have airsoft guns in public, not even CLEAR ones!

Kaiven (author)spartin1172007-03-02

well, you could just shoot it with an airsoft :)

Whaleman (author)2007-03-07

sweet, make your foil man ride on it

Aeshir (author)2007-01-27

NOTHING is legal in canada. Buhjesus! Anyways, behold! Monsieur Moo Moo Rocket Butt!

mewantbigboom (author)2007-01-24

i always wanted an exploding cow =)

xrobevansx (author)2007-01-06

What does this do exactly? And no offense- but I wish someone on here knew how to push the little flower button on their digi-cams before taking close-ups (macro).

Kaiven (author)xrobevansx2007-01-07

i know about macro, i just couldn't stay still. read the intro!

ddsn (author)xrobevansx2007-01-06

It explodes...because their is a bottle rocket in it. Probobaly if you have read you would have known.

xrobevansx (author)ddsn2007-01-07

Oh- I read it, but I missed any mention of lighting the bottle rocket and what would happen. Don't bottle rockets "FLY"? Wouldn't this launch the cow? What's the point?

crestind (author)2007-01-07

That's pretty funny :)

Tool Using Animal (author)2007-01-06

That's actually kinda cute. In fact, I think it's grate ;-)

mrmath (author)2007-01-06

He mentioned to make sure that bottle rockets are legal in your area. Just and FYI. All fireworks are illegal in New York State. Otherwise, have fun, but be careful!

ddsn (author)2007-01-06

Wow, this is FUNNY! Dude, you can sell this!
