Fat Cows

One of my favorite verses is Amos 4:1, "Listen to me, you fat cows living in Samaria, you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy, and who are always calling to your husbands, 'bring me another drink.'"

So yeah, what follows is a stern rebuke from the shepherd prophet, but there are a couple of things here that make me stop to laugh. I envision this weird sort of role reversal-- with the women lounging on the Lazy Boys watching the Home and Garden Network while yelling at their husbands to bring them another Miller Lite. And did Amos really call them "fat cows?" That's hilarious!
