This is not the set up for a bad joke, it's a real conundrum faced by an Oregon man last week. The solution, it turns out, involves draining the pool. Along with a series of straps and ropes, a ramp, a bucket of oats and 10 firefighters to haul the cow out.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I David Greene.

How do you get a cow out of a swimming pool? Wait, hear me out, this is not the setup for a bad joke. It's real conundrum faced by an Oregon man last week. The solution, it turns out, involves draining the entire pool, also a series of straps and ropes, a ramp, a bucket of oats, and 10 firefighters to haul the cow out. The homeowner says he's not sure how the cow got into the pool; that's just the setup for a whole other joke.

It's MOO-NING EDITION.
