I was always brought up that cow tipping was a standard rural recreation event. So it was surprising when my mom argued with me today that it is now considered rude to suggest that provincials will engage in an evening of cow tipping. I have nothing against cow tipping, but to me it seems a bit unpleasant for the cow and possibly dangerous. Since cow tipping is apparently so widespread I don't see any logic behind this supposed change in attitudes about it. Being an urbanite I might be out of the loop. Maybe it's just a hoax. Thoughts?
