Texas Tourism Company to Gene Simmons: Did You Bone This Cow’s Mom?

<> of US rock group Kiss performs live on stage, for a one-off Independence Day show as a fundraiser for the Help for Heroes charity, at The Kentish Town Forum on July 4, 2012 in London, England.

Genie the cow was born this past Friday, July 28, on a farm in Kerrville, Texas. Genie gets her name from an uncanny resemblance to Gene Simmons, frontman of Kiss: white and black face, extra long tongue, the works. Picking up on this resemblance, a local tourism company called the Hill Country Visitor posted a photo of Genie to its Facebook page the following day, asking the cow’s namesake, “Where were you on our about November 25, 2016?” In other words: Gene Simmons, did you bone this cow’s mom?

As the Daily Mail notes, Gene himself later tweeted out a photo of Genie, with the caption “This is real, folks!!!”

Hey, he said it, not us.
