“What do cows eat for breakfast?"/"Moosli.”

A cow riddle is:

Q: What do cows eat for breakfast?
A: Moosli.”


The “moosli” joke (moo + muesli) has been cited in print since at least 2001.


Wikipedia: Muesli
Muesli (/ˈmjuːzli/ or /ˈmuːzli/; Swiss German: Müesli [ˈmyəsli], non-Swiss Standard German: Müsli [ˈmyːsliː]) is a breakfast and brunch dish based on raw rolled oats and other ingredients like grains, fresh or dried fruits, seeds and nuts, that may be mixed with cow’s milk, soy milk, almond milk, other plant milks, yogurt or fruit juice. Developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner for patients in his hospital, muesli is available ready made in a packaged dry form, or it can be made fresh.
