let a cow tell you your fortune

Here\’s something that I saw on commandlinefu yesterday. That sent me thinking about some command to have the cow file picked randomly 🙂 So, here\’s the original command from the commandlinefu:
let a cow tell you your fortune
1
$ fortune | <a class="zem_slink freebase/en/cowsay" title="Cowsay" rel="homepage" href="http://www.nog.net/%7Etony/warez/cowsay.shtml">cowsay</a> -f tux
