“What’s the difference between a cow and the Holocaust?”

The Holocaust (Nazi Germany’s crimes against Jews and others in the 1930s and 1940s) developed into an industry, with many charities, books and films. Some people have been accused of profiting (or “milking") the tragedy too much for personal gain, leading to the joke:

Q: What’s the difference between a cow and the Holocaust?
A: You can’t milk a cow for 65+ years.


The “milk a cow” joke—sometimes offensive, depending on the context and the audience—was cited on Twitter on June 14, 2012. The joke was also posted on Reddit on December 23, 2013, with the second line changed to “75 years straight.”

“What’s the difference between 9/11 and a cow?” is a variation of the “milk a cow” phrase for another tragic event.


Wikipedia: The Holocaust
The Holocaust (from the Greek ὁλόκαυστος holókaustos: hólos, “whole” and kaustós, “burnt"), also known as the Shoah (Hebrew: השואה, HaShoah, “the catastrophe"), was a genocide in which Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany and its collaborators killed about six million Jews. The victims included 1.5 million children and represented about two-thirds of the nine million Jews who had resided in Europe. Some definitions of the Holocaust include the additional five million non-Jewish victims of Nazi mass murders, bringing the total to about 11 million. Killings took place throughout Nazi Germany and German-occupied territories.
