“I went to a restaurant run by cows. They didn’t allow tipping”

Restaurant tipping is not the same as cow tipping, but there are jokes.
 
“Why don’t cows work in restaurants? They kept getting tipped” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on February 22, 2023. “Went to a restaurant run by cows. They didn’t allow tipping” was posted on X/Twitter by Ultimate Dad Jokes on November 28, 2023.
 
   
Wikipedia: Cow tipping
Cow tipping is the purported activity of sneaking up on any unsuspecting or sleeping upright cow and pushing it over for entertainment. The practice of cow tipping is generally considered an urban legend, and stories of such feats viewed as tall tales. The implication that rural citizens seek such entertainment due to lack of alternatives is viewed as a stereotype. The concept of cow tipping apparently developed in the 1970s, though tales of animals that cannot rise if they fall has historical antecedents dating to the Roman Empire.
