Tick Ally, or Villian?, Arrested

A cow was recently arrested in Nigeria. It was originally believed that the cow was a mennace.
LAGOS (Reuters) - Nigerian police have arrested a cow that killed a bus driver who was urinating on a highway, a police spokesman said Thursday.

"You know what it will take to arrest a mad cow?" one newspaper quoted a policeman as saying. "We applied ingenuity and arrested the cow, which is now being detained at the station," he said without going into details.
But, as one would expect, this could be another injustice of a corrupt African dictator. It turns out that the cow is actually Man Eating Cow. In The Tick #8 comic books, Man Eating Cow was a hero when she ate two assassins hired to kill The Tick. In The Tick annimated TV show, however, Man Eating Cow is a member of The Terror's league of villians. Needless to say, this is quite perplexing.

The Tick later revealed that the farmer was actually El Seed, a spanish flower bent on taking revenge on the animals of the Earth for the way they treat plants. El Seed is an evil-doer whose heart was black as really poor quality, large inclusions in African diamonds.

And these are the people to whom we are giving debt relief.
